Muse' first gig outside of the United Kingdom,[source?] which Muse were payed £50 for.[2] Among the very few people[2] in the pub was Chris 'SOUSOUS', who later recorded many Muse concerts.[3] The person who organised the performance did so as a cover for smuggling goods,[2] which Matthew Bellamy later said the band didn't know until returning to the UK in the van they were travelling in.[source?]

The goods reportedly included 200,000 Regal King Size cigarettes and an unspecified amount of red wine and spirits.[2] The van was transported via ferry.[source?]
