In January 2008, as part of The JD Set, Peter Hook collaborated with The Wombats on a one-off live performance of their single Backfire at the Disco. A live recording of the song was released in April 2008, as a b-side on the single’s re-release.

In February 2008, Duffy played at The Cluny, the gig coinciding with the Welsh singer’s second week at number one with her single Mercy. In November 2008, Solange Knowles, younger sister of Beyoncé Knowles, played at The Cluny as part of her first UK tour.
