Bury Me
Iha: We [unintelligible word] new hits. Thanks.
> Quiet
BC: Whoooo!!! It's a rock 'n' roll party!
Iha: (sarcastically) Yuuup.
(amp feedback)
BC: What is that noise?
> I Am One
(BC midsong: Nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken! Nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken, yeah. What you want is what you'll get, yeah. What you want is what you'll get. ‘Cause there ain't this world...that hasn't already been taken from me. Nothing...nothing...nothing...nothing. There's nothing! Nothing! Nothing! Nothing!!!)
(Hummer drums start)
BC: This is Hummer.
BC: Thank you. Are you having fun? Alright, who's on drugs? (crowd cheers) You're on drugs? You are? Congratulations.
Iha: That's great, that's really great. That’s just fucking great. Fuckin’ ruin this concert! I'm just joking though, hahaha, oh ho.
BC: So this is a song about how I took drugs and killed my parents. I hope you like it.
Iha: We do not.
BC: Jimmy knows the song, hold on a second.
Geek U.S.A.
D’arcy: Okay, who put the gum on Billy's guitar strap? Who did it? None of us chew gum. I know you know what I'm talking about. Don't pretend like you don't understand English, I know you do.
Audience member: Suck me, baby!
BC: “Suck me, baby”? Are you talking to me?
Iha: (Dutch accent) He is talking to you.
D’arcy: Isn't that original?
BC: “Suck me, baby”?
Iha: (Dutch accent) He is talking to you.
D’arcy: Almost poetic.
BC: It's great that the people here are just as stupid as in America.
Iha: (Dutch accent) Oh, you insult us, you American.
BC: I'm not talking about everyone, I'm just talking about people who say stupid things, that's all, I don't mean everybody.
Iha: Alright, that's okay.
BC: (Dutch accent) I apologize to all of you.
Iha: Dank je wel.
> Spaced (tease)
> Rocket
BC: Thank you. (audience members yelling requests) Hey, you shut up now. I wanna play what I wanna play. I’m an independent person.
Guy in crowd: Shithead!
BC: Yeah, I know I'm a shithead too, fuck you. What's this, what does this mean? What does this mean, I don't understand. Does that mean you love me? I love you too.
Iha: (Dutch accent) It’s hot in here. ...
(crowd yelling)
BC: Shhhhh, shh.
Cherub Rock
[encore break]
BC: Sounds like the Nazis are coming. I know it’s not funny over here, in America....
Suffer / The End
(Silverfuck intro with raga-style guitar begins)
BC: It's time to take a little trip.
Iha: Yeah!
BC: So you ask yourself, well, where am I going? Maybe they tell you you're going to Pumpkinland. Have you ever been to Pumpkinland? (lukewarm crowd cheers) You haven’t been to Pumpkinland? (crowd cheers) Anyway. Says you're gonna go to Pumpkinland, but you say "But I don't wanna go, I'm scared."
Iha: Oh, I'm really scared, man.
BC: No, man, we're going to Pumpkinland.
Iha: I don't know, man, it's –- it’s too dark and I don't have my sunglasses.
BC: Alright, well, it's either Pumpkinland or Germany.
Iha: Heh...uh, what do you mean? Heh heh heh.
BC: Hey man, I can make jokes if I want to. I'll say whatever the fuck I want. You think you came here to hear music? It's a revue! Normally we have clowns and dancers but not tonight.
Iha: Oh man, you're bumming them out, man, heh. They just wanna rock.
BC: You wanna rock?
Iha: The kids wanna rock. (Billy plays more raga style guitar) Yeah, just keep doing that, man. This is by King Crimson. Yeah. (crowd roars) Ugh, I hear you. (repeated growling)
> Silverfuck
(BC after “bang bang, you’re dead, hole in your head”: Put the lights on. Juan. Lighter. ... Heh heh. [tape cuts before band kicks back in])
