Wow - what a fantastic show which lived up to everything that I had hoped for. It had colour, excitement, music and lyrics with attitude right in your face. The louder it became the better it was. Their songs simply struck the spot and that sums up the Sixties Mod group The Small Faces.

There were so many enthralling characters in this potted history of the start from raw innocent beginnings in the East End to their demise through drugs, egos out of control, groupies and dodgy music biz characters.

There were two Steve Marriotts on stage together: one was the younger rebellious version, the other was the narrator with a reflective standpoint.

And with 'guest' appearances from icons of the time like 'Dusty' and amusing takes on Tony Blackburn and Sonny and Cher, there was never a dull moment.
