During the gig the band played a handful of brand new songs and also, strangely, covered Glen Campbell's 'Rhinestone Cowboy', 'Pretty Vacant' by the Sex Pistols and The Zombies' 'Time of the Season'. They closed the set with a version of the Pink Panther theme and were joined on stage by a seven foot Pink Panther.
From the stage Stevie Jackson condemned the corruption of modern-politics saying that, unfortunately for them, "the Scottish Socialist Party are not innundated with 1 million pound gifts or bribes ." After the show, the band's frontman Stuart Murdoch condemned the Manic Street Preachers :" It's important that some people will directly support political parties like the SSP. I don't see the Manics doing anything like this. "
Murdoch then promised that the band planned to tour between now and the end of the year though, one suspects, Havanna will not be on the port of call.
