Sting couldn't start the truck. Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers went to Sting's place and pushed hard, but with no success. The Police drove to Bristol in two cars, as fortunately all the gear fitted into Spirit's truck. The Police performed after Gardez Darkx.

Lawrence Impey took photos in Bristol. A few photos can be seen on the back cover of the original Outlandos d'Amour LP and a lot more are in Lawrence Impey's book The Police: Undercover 1977-1978.
