Comments: Support from Liquid Head. 'Neat Neat Neat' included a short piece of Archie Bell and The Drells 'There's Gonna Be A Showdown'. Prior to 'Eloise', a request from an audience member for 'Fish' resulted in the band comically playing / singing a short made-up piece about fish rather than their own composition. There was a false start to 'Eloise' because the Captain began with the wrong opening riff (which sounded like 'Magic Potion' (?), though it would be another 2 years before The Damned covered that number in their set. A 'Love Song', 'Turkey Song', 'Happy Talk' snippets medley preceded 'Love Song'.

Comments: Support from Throwrag and The Dwarves. Warren Renfrow guested on bass in place of Patricia on Smash It Up as did an unidentified drummer (Fred Hell?) instead of Pinch. Between 'Happy Talk' and 'Love Song' a hybrid song was played - the Captain playing parts of 'Curtain Call', Pinch drumming the beat to 'New Rose', Dave Vanian making words up as he went along - with the occasional "Is She Really Going Out With Him", a line of "Oooh ah, Ooh ah, Stick it up Your Jumper", etc, and other band members joining in the strange endeavour.
