John: "MES also made a comment to some blokes at the front with an inflatable doll. Something about it not being a Smiths gig. Cabaret Voltaire and The Wendys supported."

Richard Harvey: "The "We're not the Smiths" comment came after the flowers in the flower baskets that decorated the front of the stage, were up-rooted and thrown onto the stage. Whoever thought it was a good idea to have potted plants at a fall gig must have been mad, but I seem to recall the Town Hall at that time was mostly used for classical concerts."
