Banter[edit | edit source]

BC: Ahhh. Yes. It’s gonna feedback, the guitar. Hello. Huh, what? No drum monitor? Excuse us for our technical difficulties, no drum monitors. Well, as long as I'm talking, um, the kinda idea we're here is to play some new songs and hopefully not suck too hard and.... So, um, I hope you appreciate it for its fucked up self, kinda like a retarded child.
D’arcy: If you don't like the songs, don't clap because then we'll know not to put it on the next album.
BC: Yeah, that’s it. Alright. You got drum monitors? You got drum monitors yet? I'd like to uh, oh no, hold on. No, less of the band.
> Slunk
BC: Um, right, um, this is Jimmy Jimmy. It is now officially Jimmy's birthday. So uh...
Iha: I know you’ve heard of him.
BC: ...let’s all, ready, one...
Happy Birthday (Billy plays guitar and joins in on third line)
BC: (singing) ...Jimmy Chamberlin. Happy birthday to you. (rimshot from Jimmy) (speaking) And uh, if there's any song in the world that's Jimmy's song, it's this one. This is uh, by Steve Miller. This is called The Joker.
The Joker
> Tristessa
BC: Well, thank you all very much for coming. It means a ver -– awful lot to us. This here is a song called Plume!
Bob English: You guys in the back are crushing the people in the front, slow down.
BC: So what do you know? (redneck voice) This here's another new song, it’s called Frail and Bedazzled and it's about being in the spotlight of your mother's love.
Frail and Bedazzled
BC: Please love each other.
Iha: Love one another.
BC: Please don't hurt anybody, okay? I mean, I don't care about the show, I don't want anybody to get hurt, please, please. We all love each other, right?
Iha: Moooo.
BC: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, I love you too, yeah. This is the song from a movie that's coming out called Singles. You don't know about it, but you'll hear about it, I think.
BC: You want us to play more or should...? If it's too hot, we'll all go home. This is a song off our album Fish. This is called Scary Me.
Bury Me
> Kill Your Parents
(BC about a minute in: Let’s hear it for the birthday boy!)
> Siva
(BC bridge: (singing) Sprinkle all my kisses on your head. Stars full of wishes fill our beds. She says –- (speaking) really good reaction, huh? -– (singing) “I’m dead.”)
(BC during quiet part between guitar solo and pre-chorus: Heh heh. Um, so this is where I’m supposed to tell you to mellow out, but I’m not your mother, so.... Kids...mellow out. Children!...go to school. Lovers...fuck your lover. Children: kill your parents. (singing) All this pain smothers me....)
> Snail
> I Am One
BC: Well, we don't wanna play any encores ‘cause it kinda seems stupid, don't it? We'll play more if you want, but.... ...
unknown guy: Well, then just go filter, okay? Just get me Torino, right here, up in the front please.
(Iha begins playing Bullet Train to Osaka)
BC: Well, I fried my amp, so....
Bullet Train to Osaka (tease - Iha plays the guitar part for a bit)
Iha: As you walk through life, I think it’s beautiful, heh heh, and I love you all. And I wish I could all be your friends.
BC: All aboard the bullet train to Osaka. Yeah!
Iha: As we champ our amp heads, we love you all.
Lola (tease)
BC: I met –- (singing) met her in a bar. I met her at a gas station, she said her name was Stacy.
Country Death Song (tease)
English: Ladies and gentlemen, toke up to the first church of rock music! You are all blessed with rock!
(tease ends)
Guy in crowd: Freebird!
BC: Sorry, we can't play the songs that you jack off to tonight, I just can't do it. No masturbation songs tonight, we're gonna play the anal sex hits right now. This is called Lube Up.
Iha: Or The Buttock Lies Down on Broadway.
Offer Up
(BC midsong: James has legally changed his name to Wah-wah.)
