in Royal Festival Hall - 2 July, 1998

from Southbank Centre Archive:

In 1996 it was John Peel's chance to choose his music choice for Meltdown. We tried to guess who he would choose and were delighted to attend two concerts in one day. Firstly, the Scottish poet Ivor Cutler who is a member of the Noise Abatement Society and later on Extreme Noise terror from Ipswich. Brilliant to see them on a large stage with great sound and a mix only John Peel could present.

Despite the evidence stating 1996, the year John Peel helmed the Meltdown festival seems to be 1998, with ENT and Cutler sharing the July 2 line-up (source: )
