i was lowkey thinking about it but then i started lightly planning and realized how expensive flights to europe were 😬. plus it seems like mostly festivals, which are a drag in terms of setlist and crowd

Love James' playing on Superchrist and Tiberius.

Agree with dustrock, Alienation is by far the worst song on Shiny. With Sympathy is a legitimately good song, I don't get why they haven't played that, or even Marchin' On which would probably be better live than studio.

Actually pretty stoked about seeing Jimmy/James on "Tiberius" (one of the really good songs Billy has written since 2000) and James on "Superchrist" (which suffered from the Zeitgeist /BC/JC problem of just being blunt riffage with no subtlety).

Couldn't give a shit one way or about about "G.L.O.W." Not my first choice of a 2007-2014 song for this lineup to play, but could do a lot worse. Only real dud is "Alienation," which will probably be as painful on when Billy insisted on playing "Run2Me" in 2015.

On a fun note, I remember on that 2015 Manson tour, they played "Run2Me" right after "1979," so you had this mass exodus of fans leaving immediately after "1979" while Billy the band was playing one of the worst songs in Billy's career.

i wonder if BC gets mad if he "messes up" the parts

i also wonder how the conversation went when BC informed JI that he would be playing the past 10 years of shitty SP fails

jeff: "don't worry james, it gets easier as time goes on. sometimes, the bald lord even lets me choose a few solo notes to play"

Ok sure, JC can manage the Tommy Lee parts, but does anyone really think he can actually fill the shoes of 1 Michael Byrne?

I remember when BC insisted on playing tracks from Oceania during the Oceania tour. It was very painful

The current live rendition is completely without conviction.

This is spot on. The fact that he picked that one off of SAOSBV1LPNPNFNS (ahh, feels good to bust that out again, been too long since I've been able to use that time saving and convenient acronym) is mindboggling.

Silvery is great on album - but live it kinda falls flat for some reason.

With Sympathy is my favorite from the album for sure, it's a no-brainer in a quieter part of the set with Sheila or Disarm or somethin'.

This all said: I'll take Superchrist, that one's got a sweet spot in my heart among the other stuff that was churned up around then. I wonder if James had ever heard that song before WPC told him that it was gonna go down?

Really love Katie Cole's backup vocals on TAFH. Wish her and James would do Said Sadly.

In 2010 when they toured with Bad City My friend Julie taped part of the sound check we were in when I jokingly requested STRTJ & he started playing it.. Nicole didn't know it though . Parts of that sound check is on YouTube. It was the Petaluma show & the Phoenix.

I agree, more natural looking. Though the long dress is slightly more flattering for Billy than the tight t shirt.

Superchrist sounds great but it really misses that sense of build up and release with no scream
