- Chuck: I'd like to take this opportunity to let you know that uh the Cutaways and Life of Fire are playing on Tuesday November 3rd at the Cat - Club. I never heard of those bands but, it's on the back of our setlist so... So how everybody doin' tonight huh?! Is that too loud? Yeah!! So uh, like I said.

The band start with We Care A Lot, but only a tease, moving quickly to Chinese Arithmetic.

The crowd chant for We Care A Lot the whole gig.

In the intro to Spirit, Jim?: "One time, while I was waiting for the bus, I saw a small baby abandoned there, and I just bought new pruning sheers, and I pruned its arms back because it looked too long."

Last line of We Care A Lot changed: "It's a stupid line but I'm the one who wrote it."

Before Sweet Dreams:
- Chuck: Hey Bill, Jim has to tune his bass man. How 'bout those Rangers huh? Of all the nerve!
- Roddy: You guys watch a lot of TV?
- Chuck: This song is dedicated to uh... people who are sweet, everywhere.

Chuck: Thanks uh New York, See you later, see you maybe Saturday night at the Ritz or something with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Royal Crescent Mob. Stay soon for Iggy Pop I mean Schooly D.
