  • Trader Zac writes: "The first support act for the 2nd Selina's shows was a Sydney band called Drip Tray. Drip Tray had long before broken up but they were contacted by Thurston who had one of their 7" and he personally asked them to reform and play the show. Noise Addict (Ben Lee's band) were brought on during SY's show on 2/6/93. SY stopped their show to bring the kids on (they were only 12 or 13 years old) saying how they had spent that afternoon watching Noise Addict in the studio. Everyone was laughing at the situation of these little kids playing in the middle of SY's show. They played a cover of Dead Kennedy's Let's Lynch the Landlord + a few originals. SY just stood on stage and watched them go, they didn't play with them. The recording that was sent to me of this show completely edits the whole Noise Addict part."
