Skin Côntact Encore – sketchy iPhone pics from a great night @ O2 Islington

Last year's inaugural gig on Monday 9 March 2015 at the now closed Vinopolis was supposed to be a one-off. Happily they were persuaded out of premature retirement and, with a new line up of vocalists played another great gig at the O2 Islington. Hopefully this will not be the band's final appearance and that they will play as many farewell concerts as Frank Sinatra.....
