The band is at the early stages of the epic 1993 tour schedule here. We get some good-humoured soundcheck hey-hey's, a little opening remark, and the show opens with a rocking Reprovisional.

The sound is a bit thin as Joe's bass tends to drown out. Overall this recording is very good, and quite typical of this era, as the band's unified power and energy comes through.

The band push on with fast rockers. Afterwards a highlight for me is an early representation of Rend It, which gets a strong and explosive performance.

I really like how on these older recordings you can hear the shouts from the crowd between songs really well. It kind of makes you feel like you are there. This is good since there's some quite funny and over the top confrontation regarding Ian's guitar troubles. After the banter we get another highlight in the form of a fiery Long Division. The band is in a high energy mode, and it gives the song a curiously funky and fast-paced edge.

Explosive performances continue with an angry Bulldog Front, and Waiting Room. You can hear the singalong from the crowd pretty well on this tape, especially on the old classic tracks. The atmosphere in the room is excited and enthusiastic, and the crowd welcomes still unreleased tracks, such as a muscular Instrument, with delight too. Another goosebumps-inducing singalong is a huge, slow Shut The Door.

The band pumps out Facet Squared as the first encore, and I can only imagine how cool it was to hear that rocking bassline under the beeping feedback live for the first time.

The setlist felt to me like it just flew by, as everything was played at full force. I'm sure the enthusiastic crowd was left hungry for more. All in all this is another classic tape from the interesting era where the band was on it's way to arguably their biggest album so far. They are clearly excited to present new material, and it's great to hear such a welcoming crowd.
