  • The sound was different from what the audience may have come to expect, much more amplified. It was the first time she's been joined by a full band in London.

  • Interjection from crowd and Courtney was kept to a minimal throughout, but 'DePreston' (which she revealed will be released as a special 7-inch for Record Store Day this year) was an intimate moment with Barnett on guitar, later joined by her drummer.
