TG's penultimate gig was fondly remembered by Genesis P-Orridge (a Frank Zappa fan) for Don Preston showing up and telling him that Captain Beefheart listened to "Second Annual Report" whilst he was painting (Ford 11.10).

In Art Sex Music, Cosey Fanni Tutti recalls the show as "a nightmare. It was as if Gen had turned into Ted Nugent. He was behaving like a rock star guitarist and lead singer….I was disgusted and walked off mid-set into the dressing room. I'd have stayed there until the gig came to a grinding, shambolic halt if it hadn't been for two couples fucking up against the lockers. I walked out and went back on stage" (p.268-269). Afterwards she visited Frederick's of Hollywood on Sunset and bought some lingerie and diamente accessories "that became my Christmas stripping outfit for the classier stag nights and office parties" (p.284).
