In Q issue 263 Matt described this gig as "one that stood out" due to the production being very limited (only balloons and lights). He also noted that he wanted to do more of these "stripped down shows" in amongst the "monster shows" in the future.


Howard wore his Spiderman outfit for the show.


Majority of the gig is available in mp3 format here. This was recorded by Kinopus and various other rips from YouTube.
