Fire alarm goes off mid-set, building is evacuated. This happened again at the London ICA the following week, the smoke machine later being identified as the cause.

The soundcheck run-throughs comprised of Shine On, Flow, Christine, Destroy The Heart, Touch Me x2 and Christine again.


“A very different atmosphere to the 1988 gigs. Clearly the band were struggling with inner tensions and turbulent interpersonal relationships, perhaps Phonogram/second album pressure too. Backstage was off limits to keep private whatever that day’s issues were, though in fairness Guy still coming out to meet and greet, putting on a brave PR face. Things had noticeably changed though. Even the soundcheck was a strained affair, despite the soundman’s humorous interjections. Thankfully the quality of performance for the gig didn’t suffer and the set list welcomed some interesting introductions old and new: Safe, Flow, Touch Me and Welt.” Tim Driver
