Notes: 

From the Slowdive Newsletter, November 1993 written by Rachel Goswell:

"October was probably my favourite month of the year, we did a three week tour of Europe with Cranes (again!), we covered Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Germany (...) Cranes went off to play in Slovenia and Italy and we went off to play in Prague, which was excellent fun, still we were sad to part company."

Artist:

Line up: 

Neil Halstead, Rachel Goswell, Simon Scott, Christian Savill, Nick Chaplin

Setlist: 

n/a

Notes: 

From an interview with Christian Savill:

I remember playing a gig in Coventry and seeing a woman mopping the floor when we were playing. I remember looking up and thinking that it was time to end then , but then Neil organised a US tour, and that was fantastic, and a nice way to go out really

From an article in The Guardian:

The final death knell came during a show in Coventry, when Savill looked out into the audience, “and there was a woman just mopping the floor.” Chaplin remembers it, too. “That’s when I thought: ‘I’d better get a job.’”
