  • Early versions of 4 "Rather Ripped" tunes were debuted by a stripped down trio version of SY between European tours in July of 2005 - "Pink Steam" "Do You Believe in Rapture?" "Or" and "Helen Lundeberg" (which appeared on a 7"). The full band debuted a brand new song entitled 'Sleepin Around' at one August gig in Iceland. "Incinerate" and "Lights Out" were premiered by the same 3-piece SY (sans Lee) in December.
  • SY also performed John Lennon's "Isolation", previously only recorded by Lee solo for an unreleased Lennon tribute album.

Since many set lists are either missing or incomplete, and not all concert dates are available, it's impossible to offer 100% accuracy, but this is as close as the site can come w/ the information available.
