While we know this gig was in 1995, it is uncertain as to whether it was as listed—that is in February—on the muse-official gig database.[source?] Lockjaw Records manager Jack Turner recalled in 1995 that there were at least three gigs between 1995 and 1997 in the Bull and Gate.
Muse's manager at the time, Phil Korthals, asked Tribute to Nothing for a support slot in London, after having supported Tribute to Nothing earlier in Exeter. Tribute to Nothing obliged and the gig became the first Muse played outside of Devon.
To ensure they had an audience,[source?] Muse paid for transport for themselves and their friends via coach from Exeter. Jack Turner described the pub as having been "packed" during Muse's performance. Also supporting was mod band "The Few", who performed between Muse and headliners Tribute to Nothing.
