and the 3rd was:

Saturday 28 November 1992 or Sunday 29 November 1992
All Nighter 1992
Scala Theatre, London, UK
line-up: Stereolab Tindersticks Huggy Bear Moonshake The Hair And Skin Trading Co Mambo Taxi

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.
