  • Available on the "Sonic Mania of Brother" bootleg. The title was actually supposed to be "Sonic Mania" or "Brother". Supposedly the last track of the bootleg is the last song of the Moonies' opening set, "Car Crash", their last performance as a band.
  • The band borrowed a standard-tuned guitar from the Moonies for "Be Yr Dog".
  • Emmanuel Tremblay's cassette replay: "it's one of the longest show of the tour and a good one. thurston introduces 'i got a catholic block', then 'i got a tuff gnarl' and lee says 'i got a pipeline- kill time'. 'white kross' is for 'daniel johnson'. it's a long version similar to gent. this time, the kim/steve jam is shorter and segues into 'hot wire my heart'. brother james is for 'james hendrix' and 'james cage'. 'i wanna be your dog' is for huggy bear and they end with a big 'keep the thing'."
