> I Am One
Iha: (mic very quiet) Thanks a lot and uh, we’re the Smashing Pumpkins, we’re from Chicago. Thank you, (mic at good volume) thank you very much and um, right now we got a Sub Pop single out right now and if you wanna come by afterwards and buy one, we got one for you.
> Out of Focus
BC: Thank you very much. What are you trying to say?
Iha: Heh ha!
Paranoid (tease - first 2 notes)
BC: Alright, this song's in the key of E and it's called Earth of the Phoenix Child, Part 3, thank you.
BC: Alright, this is another in a metaphysical, uh, series. This is called -- it'll never be released -- Chump!
Slunk (abandoned after 2nd line)
BC: Ah, that was the greatest short song we ever played.
BC: You wanna hear that one again?
Guy in crowd: Backwards!
BC: Alright, you gotta pretend you didn't hear this.
