Those with eagle-eyes at this gig may have spotted Mr Harper's message to an ex-Sub, scrawled on a poster opposite Yuko's merch desk. The poster advertises The Men They Couldn't Hang playing the following Saturday at The Railway. Ricky McGuire is the bassist with 'The Men', although whilst he was in the U.K. Subs he was known as Plonker Magoo!



The Dorset based TAPED webzine/website produced a Promotional DVD for the forthcoming Time & Matter/Radar Proof Recordings DVD release 'Soft Lights And Loud Guitars', and distributed it at this gig.

On the DVD are promo videos for Riot and Strychnine, which were put together for the new U.K. Subs DVD, plus alternative edits of C.I.D and Emotional Blackmail. A Charlie Harper interview clip from the DVD extras section is also on there.
Also included is stuff from the Radar Proof Recordings' recent Vibrators DVD release. This is a clip of Pure Mania as well as an excerpt from the DVD extras' Knox interview. Also included is the RPR promo video for Under The Radar.
Local Bournemouth punk band Self Abuse also feature with two tracks, Teenage, filmed at Champions in November 2009 and Derelict from The Portman in April 2010. Another local band The Subatomics also have videos included. 

Around 50 copies of the DVD were given away FREE at this gig, to people who bought stuff from Yuko's merch stall. 50 more will go at the C-30s gig on 12th June at Champions, Bournemouth. Further copies will be given away free in June with about 200 copies being printed up in all.
