Current 93 played "the soundtrack to the film Happy Birthday Pigface Christus" (according to a Sounds blurb) this night along with Annie Anxiety and D&V. The set was very short (less than 15 minutes), due to Steve Ignorant flipping out at the end, throwing himself into the other band's drum kit and having to be dragged offstage. David Tibet and John Balance both recalled being quite startled at this. No official recordings exist of this show, but a bootleg video does exist.

SOUNDS described it as follows:

"TEN MINUTES of sheer mayhem. Could have been the wailings of Hades, could have been the sound of a million badgers in labour, could have developed into something astonishing. But it was all too much for Steve Ignorant. Suddenly, and much to the surprise of Tibet and Rushton who carried on playing, the poor lad went absolutely berserk and had to be pinned to the floor by a bewildered bouncer. And that was that Current 93's debut live orgasm ending in premature ejaculation. Ah, but what foreplay!"
