Scotland's SNOWBLOOD played in Manchester at least 4 times during their existence; this would have been around the time of their second album. In fact, I think they had played the Phoenix just that June before. As with many of the gigs at the Phoenix (most put on by Daniel/manchestershows.cjb.net) this gig was on the open floor of the top room, accessed from the old bridge.
According to my records Liverpool's a.P.a.t.T. cancelled, and BURNST played instead. I imagine I was quite happy about this, because it's otherwise rather a "blips and beeps" line-up by my standards.
CAMPAIGN (aka Smear Campaign) was Stuart Arnot doing drones/improv with a trumpet and effects pedals. SENSE OR THIS was Dom (driving Snowblood, as it happened) doing electronic and laptop stuff.
