Following the NME National Tour, James Lavelle and The Scratch Perverts (Tony Vegas & Prime Cuts) DJed at The Fifth Heineken Weekender, and DJ Shadow made a guest appearance on stage.

Shadow's Revealed

Shadow mentioned the appearance during an online Q&A with fans on February 18 1999. A fan asked "Shadow, why didn't you tour with UNKLE recently?" and Shadow answered, "I was in America finishing The Quannum LP which features Jurassic 5, Souls of Mischief and others, but I did do a cameo with them in Ireland."[1]

He mentioned the show again during another fan online Q&A on August 10, 1999, where he said "I think the Scratch Perverts are dope...I did a weak cameo with them in West Ireland (i think it was Galway)"[2]

In 2020 DJ Prime Cuts posted a photo online of the Scratch Perverts on stage with James Lavelle and DJ Shadow.[3] It was later reposted by DJ Shadow.[4]
