WTF010 - barfparty.
01 - Utilising blasphemy as a seduction technique.
Early live outing and the end of the set.
02 - Eating people is wrong.
I wonder what happened to the rest of the gig, seeing as all that's surfaced is the encore. Oh well.
This was recorded at the launch party for PET001CD. We'd made a bit of an effort and dressed up and planned things and so on. The gig itself (for us) started with the Reverend marrying us to the audience – all legal too, which has created some problems since, not least for the lady who'd actually got the wrong night.
03 - Drinking hell dry.
I don't remember playing this one live as much as the number of recordings that we have of it suggest we did. And while you're unravelling that sentence…
04 - Propaganda.
This track got officially subtitled “The best chorus in South Wales” – in print – as a result of this performance. I like the way the recorded version makes a sneaky reappearance.
05 - Teflon Monkey interview.
An exclusive tell-all. Almost unparalleled in length and depth, this interview really cuts through all the obfuscation that was being deliberately (or otherwise) woven about at the time. It's an interesting listen – with a twist ending – so pop on something hot and herbal and settle down for intriguing insights into the behind-the-scenes madness of Nameless (MK 2).
You may need a tissue or three.

01 – Girls who smoke are sexy.
Heard of ‘sonic architecture'? This is a t-shirt.
02 – Eating people is wrong.
We'd changed gear and line-up about a month before this was recorded. Probably the last time it was played with a fade-out in the middle. Probably…
03 – Drinking hell dry.
For a song that seemed to become forgotten rather quickly ‘Drinking hell dry' was a lot of fun to record. Mostly it was the fjordy crinkles.
04 – Propaganda.
I think PET001CD still stands up pretty well. Every now and then we'd hit a run of luck when everyone was enthusiastic and pointing in the same direction. When that happened everything seemed to fly.
