We then had The Art of Suicide, which was one of very few songs from the Opheliac album that Emilie performed (none at all from first album Enchant which wasn't a huge surprise). As a live song it is still beautifully haunting, although personally I wasn't one hundred per cent keen on the theatrics that went with it; the Crumpets swaying about with blossoms on branches and stars on a string. For me it distracted from a poignant, melancholic yet cynical song. But perhaps I'm just being fussy.
A highlight of the performance for fans of the estimable Veronica Varlow is her solo fan dance to one of the instrumental tracks.
