This was the first time Dennis Smith, owner of Sawmills Studios, saw Muse perform. Earlier the same month, after hearing of the band, Smith had telephoned in order to arrange attending a Muse gig. After hearing the band perform, he told them that he would give studio time to record an EP for release on his label, Dangerous Records, once he felt that the band had reached an appropriate level.
In 2012, Wolstenholme referred to this gig in a tweet as a reply to the question whether there ever was a point in their career where they felt like they were going nowhere and were wasting their time: "maybe playing in the Camborne centre in 1995 to 3 people."
Reporter 'Lee Trewhela' was contacted by Dennis Smith to watch Muse play and do a review and he described Muse as 'Boring' and that 'there was hardly anyone watching them' and he preferred to move to the 'dance section' to dance to blur than listening to Muse, thus, in the end he decided to not do the review, however, he saw Muse in the Eden Sessions back in 2006 and he 'fully realised I’d got it wrong. I should have reviewed that Camborne gig but never did. Just think, I could have gone down in history as the journalist who discovered Muse.'
An audience recording of the concert was being passed around in the late 90s, however nothing has surfaced.
