Teen Age Riot
'Cross the Breeze
As with all June '88 shows, the songs featured radically different lyrics and even vocal styles. Very sloppy, jammy show with rough takes of most songs. Fun!
- The Wonder
- Rain King [really different!]
- Teenage Riot
K: "Could you turn the fluorescent light off?"
- 'Cross the Breeze [Thurston vocals]
T: "This song is called 'Hey! ...Joni.'"
- Hey Joni
[walkman plays mike watt answering machine tape from 'PROVIDENCE' (no piano) -> another message from somebody else?]
T: [after very long Candle jam intro] "Are you quite ready? *laughs* Steve, can you count it cuz I can't.. I can't count."
T: [after long jammy intro] "Are you in tune? Kim says this song is called 'Kissability'."
T: "Lee? What are you doing?" [tape cuts]
- Eliminator Jr [Kim sings the 'poor boy' lyrics over the ZZ top riff instead]
- Silver Rocket
T: "Guitar is broken. Thanks a lot for coming to see us play! Um.. seeya!"
