- Ended prematurely due to a riot
during the first song "Punk"
- Murdoc described the show for
Noisey in 2016: "How did it go? Like any paradigm-shifting
event, it overloaded people's synapses. They were so shell-shocked
a massive riot broke out (which I predicted). The place got
trashed, there were multiple casualties, and I picked up a range
of STDs. Top night."

a record deal with EMI instantly after gig.

music," says the EMI A&R man Whiffy Smiffy [Mike Smith] in
the Gorillaz autobiography Rise Of The Ogre.
