Pinch has arm problems during the set and initially left the stage for a lengthy period between 'Shadow of Love' and 'New Rose'. Dave of 4 Foot Fingers (roadie with The Damned at the time) stepped up in place of Pinch for the encore - in Captain's words (ie blatantly lifted from his tour blog) "We slipped 'Jet Boy Jet Girl' back in the set as he knew that one well but I must say he played it so bloomin' fast I could just about fit all the words in. After that I implored him to slow things down a little and things lurched the other way - 'Antipope' being the slowest rendition I can ever remember doing. 'Love Song' and 'Smash It Up' were spot on though and we successfully completed what was a difficult gig in the circumstances".

Comments: Part of 'The Twisted Cabaret of The Damned' UK tour but also a one-off for The Damned tour as it was actually a show in its own right rather than the involving the burlesque and competition supports as was the case for all other gigs. Billed as 'Blackmarket X presents The Texas Chainsaw Travelling Horror Picture Show starring The Damned, Special Guests [which was announced as Queenadreena in the weeks only just running-up to the event] and Urban Voodoo Machine' (note that early advertising indicated 80's Matchbox B-Line Disaster as support with The Urban Voodoo Machine). The show, as opposed necessarily to The Damned performance, received very negative reviews from Damned fans. Additionally this was the first of a few shows where beer throwing caused technical problems for the band.
