The audio from this broadcast has been circulated on the Live Hardcore and Pulp Die In Vain bootleg CDs.


Jarvis opens the set by telling the audience that they are going to "die in pain". This sets the tone for what is to come. Jarvis is clearly in a filthy temper. This had been precipitated by having to play with borrowed instruments because the band's own equipment was flown to Moscow by mistake ("I've never been to Moscow ... but by fucking amplifier has ... My amplifier is more well travelled than I am."). The fact that Jarvis was unable to hear himself through the monitors during the set aggravated things further. At the end, Jarvis shows his displeasure by smashing the microphone stand and tipping over the monitors.
