Shihad and Head Like A Hole played a Polish Death Metal Festival
- In 1995 Shihad and HLAH were unfortunately booked to play a Polish Death Metal Festival. A small minority of the 10,000 crowd loved HLAH while the majority roared their disapproval as Booga gave the crowd an absolute bollocking (in English, of course). Shihad played to a totally silent crowd - no clapping or booing. The bands then made a beeline for the exit and a beeline for the border. Manager Gerald Dwyer described the other bands as "brutal, extreme, totally nasty death and black metal bands."

See Metalmania Festival 1995 Info.

Whilst staying at a less than celubrious Hamilton Motel, members of Shihad decided that they had not yet thrown a TV set out a window. Drummer Tom Larkin made it clear that TV sets were not in the tour budget. What could they afford to throw was the vexing question? It was decided that a toaster was affordable. Phil Knight threw it and he reached the road but he narrowly missed a passing Mercedes.
