  • JP in fast-paced, upbeat mood as if lots to pack in.
  • Three recordings were made of this show. Tape (a) was recorded onto a TDK D90 by RazorBladeAlley.  Sound quality very poor at the start of both sides of the cassette: Side A settles down by track 2; Side B problems with sound quality, most sound recorded onto left channel up to track 17. Note - this file was never shared. Tape (b) shared by Isector. Tape (c) shared by Max-Dat, completes the penultimate track
  • Arab Strap track. JP says this is from the "Arab Strap At Christmas E.P." but I can find no mention of it anywhere online nor do I remember seeing it about so have listed the same track where it appeared on 'Philophobia' album.
  • Note - Lorcan's Tracklistings catalogue the Arab Strap track as being from the White Label version of Philophobia


  • Magic Dirt #1. Recorded 1997-10-28 at Maida Vale 5. Produced by Mike Robinson. Engineered by Lisa Softley.
  • On the limited edition 2xCD edition of their album "What Are Rock Stars Doing Today" are included the tracks "Ice" and "Heavy Business" from this session.
