“Chants of ‘Who are you?’ were met with confusion by Ryder, who thought the crowd were chanting for fellow Manchester band New Order. After some bottle-throwing and abuse from the crowd, they were treated to a series of unwanted Happy Mondays and Black Grape covers from Ryder and band including ‘Kinky Afro’, ‘Reverend Black Grape’ and ‘Hallelujah’. After calling an abusive member of the crowd ‘a f**king knob’, Ryder played ‘Step On’ before leaving the stage.”
