From the Official Slowdive Newsletter #1, page 1, 1994:

After America we did a couple of festivals in Europe. These were in Amsterdam and Mons (Belgium). These were both indoors, and Blur were the main band. We were out for around five days. Both gigs were pretty mental. In Mons there were a number of English bands playing, Miranda Sex Gardens’ drummer was beaten up the night before and hospitalized by a friendly bouncer in a local club. This was due to him having long hair, and the bouncer not liking that. This news did disturb us somewhat, and made us wonder what we’d let ourselves in for! Still, we didn’t personally have any mishaps
