By the The Serenity Vortex:

It was at a tiny venue and there were only about 100 of us shoegazers, packed into a smoke filled room. They produced this amazing dreamy wall of sound, and whilst not being a particularly engaging band, the music certainly entertained us enough. They were so good I snatched the list off the stage after they had finished their set. I kept both the ticket and the list, this gig was also the day after a major turning point in my life (for the better!), and as such holds fond memories

Notes: 

Neil announces at the beginning that Rachel isn't there yet so they began the show without her. This is why the first song is labeled as "Avalyn II" since it's an instrumental version. Rachel arrives after "Catch The Breeze".

From the Holding Our Breath Official Fanzine Part 4: Slowdive – Tour Diary, pages 25-29, written by Rachel Goswell:

It looks (The Black Cat) too big venue for us. We all groan when we see the size of it. Various people are milling around. The two support bands, Lorelei and Le Bradford are there setting up their equipment. This is supposedly a 500 capacity venue, tho' it looks bigger. Apparently, when it's full it doesn't look it due to fire regulations. We find out Carter are playing at the 9:30 club, and we get our usual paronia trip about no-one turning up. We end up with around 270 people, over twice as many as Carter. It looks respectable enough and the gig goes surprisingly smoothly. First nights are notoriously plagued with mistakes, but tonight we play reasonably well. Steve from Lorelei kindly offers to put us up for the night. Totally amazing house. One hundred acres of land. Unfortunately, it was raining the following morning so we didn't really venture out"
