Notes

While it is unclear which nights James Lavelle DJed at, he would be in Japan from at least the 6th of May for the Battle Royal tour. Also, while he is mentioned as appearing in Glasgow on May 5 in issue 252 of The List[4], later in the same issue it says the DJs will be Charlie from Attica Blues and Shorty Blitz[5]. Presumably Lavelle did not appear, as he would also be appearing at the first of his regular Headz nights in London on that date.
