Some nice photos of the Studio atmosphere made by Neil Fraser & included in the article.
It has been quite a tradition for members of the band to sit down & answer questions from fans/members of their official web phorum.
Like in 2001, 2010 and 2012, they released again this year a new Q&A article. This time on their website:

As I re-build my new darkroom, here’s to another 30 years, “Long live film!” ”

and some memories from Neil Fraser on that gig:
“I do remember that gig…it was a long night. A byline regarding that show…there was a review of us from the Scala gig in the Melody Maker (or Sounds, not sure which now) with a photo of me and Stuart. I had a ‘proper’ job at the time and my boss, who saw the photo, basically asked me to make a decision between my job and being in a band – I was taking some time off work due to tindersticks commitments – I think I made the right choice.“
