This gig acted as a show-case for Taste Media co-owner Safta Jaffery, arranged by fellow co-owner Dennis Smith.[2] Jaffery encouraged Smith to give Muse free recording time in Sawmills recording studio, from which came multiple demos. Jaffery thought each of these progressively better.[2] The band was then signed to Taste Media, releasing its first UK release, the Muse EP,[3] the following March through Dangerous Records.[2]

A poster from this gig surfaced on eBay on the 30th of January 2009.
