Iha: Alright!, heh heh. We have to tie our shoes, hang on.
BC: (German accent) Good evening. (normal) We are R.E.M. We'd like to play you some new songs from our new album. And then we'll play all those old, old ones. (German accent) But first we play the new songs.
Zero (abandoned before drums kick in - Billy’s guitar keeps emitting feedback)
Iha: Uhhhh, we have a technical difficulty. Goodnight, thank you.
BC: Uh oh. Oh yeah, John, more bass please.
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Iha: On this next new song, I want you to sing the chorus yet again. Heh, that’s just a joke.
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
BC: We'd like to thank you very much for being here tonight. I know it's a loooong day of rock, we appreciate you staying and uh, we'd like to thank um, those who've seen us in the past, we've always had great support here and we'd like to thank you for that. Why the - while the rest of Western Europe is still trying to catch on to us, you know, you've been with us since 1991 and we thank you very much. Like to play you an oldie but a moldie and it goes like this.
BC: And the hits keep coming.
BC: We're not actually the same people that were in the band when Gish was recorded, so we can't play any of those songs. We're kind of like Nine Inch Nails, we keep replacing the members every year.
Iha: Would you people stop shouting over there?
BC: I forgot, you don't speak English.
Thru the Eyes of Ruby (abandoned immediately - somebody’s guitar sounds like shit)
Thru the Eyes of Ruby
(BC over very end: Goddamn.)
> Cherub Rock
BC: (German accent) Thank you, Peter. (normal voice) Thanks for letting us ruin the rest of your night. Hope to see you back in uhhhhh, April?, March?, May? Any requests? (grunting imitating what he hears from crowd) (gruff voice) They want - they want to hear (grunting like Arnold Schwarzenegger)
Iha: I know that song.
Silverfuck / Space Jam
BC: (German accent) Thank you, bye bye. (normal voice) See you soon, thanks.
