02 Purr Snickety (https://mega.co.nz/#!W88UlCII!jYB8pcvZ0I7g4_ejKF5aUovtxsGLAeKY5MtXdpN J9Gs)
03 Owata (https://mega.co.nz/#!LssAjR5a!t4IQjQohoKrjIrtBbOSkUaCnvmgl8IEEl0WhT83 0G2s)
04 Q & A (https://mega.co.nz/#!G0lxRT7I!cKvVbKhNRmz9sTjIvmKGnVbJUUXDCd30WSPnN6H nG2E)

These are being presented on a "better than nothing" basis... There's some fuzz in the first song - I think someone must've been trying to Facetime with their iPhone and that causes interference with my mics. Anyway, enjoy.

P.S. Is there a better file upload/hosting site that people prefer? I forget which one the leaks were on but they seemed pretty stable...

Awesome..thanks for these!

Also, Dropbox tends to be the file sharing site I see used most often. I'm not sure if that's what the leaks were on but I do see it used pretty frequently.

Not sure if anyone caught it... but after the first song Billy says something along the lines of "Mike and Nicole will be out shortly" and the crowd kinda groans... ouch

He can be such a fucking prick at times. So now it's Nicole's and Mike's fault that Oceania and the last tour sucked? Not that the audience is any better. It's amazing how quickly people turn once Billy talks shit about someone.

Billy seems to be a prick most of the time. But if the audience didn't go along with the Nicole and Mike hate, I wouldn't put it past him to turn on the audience. That probably would have made the night significantly less (or more?) entertaining.

I wonder what his whole beef with Nicole was about? She seemed to do a sufficient job on the album and was decent enough live (aside from her vocals- while they sounded nice on record, they didn't translate well live.

She probably doesn't know it as well. She said she would be available for touring if Billy needs her again.

Maybe that's why, maybe he wanted her to be full time available for the pumpkins and and she said she was taking a time to play with her band Billy decided she was not good enough.

Video - comment is just after the 5:00 mark - helps put a little more context onto the comment... but not a LOT more. All in all, just a weird thing. Wonder what Jeff was thinkin' during that one.

That said, other thoughts:

-Cover is cool stuff. Great song, well executed.
-Purr Snickety - phew, that's a deep cut. I liked the version, actually.
-Owata - Would of course naturally be bummed if I was getting a 3 song set and this ended up being one of em.

Were these just pricey tickets, or how did people get into this? Was a cat adoption part of it?

I think it's over. She tweeted something while the show was going on about being glad that a dark cloud was lifted over her. She's gone.

I couldn't understand a thing he said after the initial statement; it was probably funny.


Purr Snickety sounded really good.

when i was 12 or 13 i was in a teen cabaret thing where there were like 20 of us playing individually and in groups at small shows adults set up for all of us (maybe 100-200 people). the first one i did they really liked me and wanted me to open and close the show. so my pretentious ass played purr snickety and then rocked porcelina with a band at the end. i probably sang porcelina very poorly but we did kick some serious ass for a bunch of preteens

anyway i really like purr snickety

People turned on Mike like 5 years ago. And in all fairness, yes, I would say a large part of the problems with Oceania and the last tour were because of Mike. I didn't have serious issues with Oceania outside the drumming and two or three songs. If Jimmy or Matt played on that album I think a lot of peoples' opinion about it would have changed.

Ram27
09-01-2014, 10:11 PM
Yep.

Jimmy and Billy seem to feel about James and Darcy the way everyone feels about Nicole and Mike. But I think Mike was a worse drummer than James was a guitar player.

That's fine and all. I'm not defending them, but let's not forget that it was Billy who hired him and played him up for 5 years.

Yep.

Jimmy and Billy seem to feel about James and Darcy the way everyone feels about Nicole and Mike. But I think Mike was a worse drummer than James was a guitar player.In terms of respect, James & D'arcy are way above Nicole and Mike. If it weren't for james and d'arcy the band probably wouldn't exist, maybe they would't meet jimmy or who knows what could have happened. but just as once billy said about jim in 96, every one of them is a 25% of the band and they were there back in 1988 when the band was at the bottom.
that's why there's no way anybody can feel about them the same way they feel about nicole and mike... nicole and mike, they were mostly hired guns who were promoted as these new, talented whatnot people who could contribute to the new songs.. but then again, billy's ego is way out of control and none of them can actually stand up to him.
I give them props for going away and starting their own projects. that's pretty much what got them kicked out of the band. I mean, go back to 1998 when james released his solo album and started to lose interest in the band itself.. less than a year later they settled to end the band.

it's all about sticking with whatever billy does, listening to his orders and not doing anything on your own, isn't it? I mean, that's what jeff's been doing and look at him, he's become billy's sidekick after 7 years, even though he hasn't contributed one bit to whatever success the band had these 7 years.

Thanks for this recording, it's pretty good! Would you please be willing to share it on FLAC format? (I also enjoyed your show recording and sent you the same request on the other thread) :) Thanks!

I was at this pre-show and really enjoyed the songs and the whole mood of the event. Purr Snickety is one of my favorite SP songs, so hearing it in that setting was just insane.

I got the lyric sheets for the 3 songs (print-outs with handwritten titles) and will scan and post them when I have some time at work! They were just laying on the stand so I asked the security guy if he minded if I took them; he looked at me like I was a weirdo and said he didn't care... :)
