- (JP: 'Now this next one, you're going to think, when I've started it, you're going to say to yourselves, "Our sex lord has got it wrong again, he's playing the record at the wrong speed." This isn't in fact the case, although it does sound like it.')
- (JP: 'These are the Happy Mondays: I saw them playing last night in London as well, and very good they were too. Of course, (there were) some very dangerous looking lads who hang around with them, and sort of tend to rather dominate the stage later in the evening: the band disappear and these people carry on without 'em. But disconcerting-looking boys, I must say.') This gig is reviewed by John in the Observer of 4th December 1988 and the review is included in the Olivetti Chronicles. This may point to this part of the show being from the previous week
