Finally, after Keith and I have had coffees and John's had a beer, we arrive back at the club for Keith's show. Liquids has a sort of space-age decor, with metallic fittings and bubbling liquid in glass pipes in the walls and lights projecting coloured oil on the ceilings. It's a bit like being inside a lava lamp.
