  1. While I'm here, here's my attendance record for the BITUSA B sides. Pink Cadillac twice (both at the Showgrounds in 85) Jersey Girl. Nope Shut out the Light twice (Showgrounds 85 again) Johnny Bye Bye (Showgrounds 85 again) Stand on it. Nah. But I wish. Janey. Brisvegas 2017 Santa Claus. Amazingly I have seen 41 shows and never seen this. And that's fine with me.
  2. In my (not so ) humble opinion, Shut out the light is easily the BEST of the BITUSA B sides and should have been on the rekkid, but Stand On It is the one I listened to the most. I should add that I bought all of those singles and made a tape of them (as we used to do). Side 3.
  3. It occurs to me that I have heard Janey live. Brissie 17. But not Stand on it. Quel Dommage.
  4. I understand that most of you didn't pick this. But, and I mean this most sincerely, to the others who picked this - you have my respect. I hope to see you in the pit sometime, while those others are skulking up the back, looking at their shoes, hoping for Janey to be played. Just kidding - peace and love.
  5. @Paolo's Circus Story c'mon. I need to know what you think of Melbourne 2. In my experience as a much older man than you, some of the best times are had with people who are hungover. The guard is down. The filter between brain and mouth is not working quite the same way. I can't be bothered checking but the story about the illuminated toilet was that night, right? I know he trotted it out later. Having seen all the shows on the tour, that one stands out as being very different, and one of my favourites. Good work Eddie and Tommy, for getting Brooce out on the gas, and giving us somethi
  6. It was never released. I have always been a bit bemused by the discussion on this board, and the accepted fact that it wasn't released because Bruce was hungover. I was there, and it was an excellent (long) show. I can't testify to the size of his hangover, but it didn't affect my enjoyment. The only recording that I know of was recorded by one of my brucebuds at the time, Mark, and I have previously shared it with a few prople on this board. I've just had a quick look for it and can't find it. If no one else can put it up, I'll look harder. I'd be really interested to hear what P
  7. Sydney 8am? Sydney misunderstood them. Called them thugs and mean spirited types. Let me correct that poster. Melbourne 8 am
  8. I'm excited young Hero. The DKMs are sensational. My daughter put me on to them many years ago and next time they came to town I went to see them, but she couldn't come because she was too young. She has seen them since of course, but I don't think she has forgiven me completely. When normal programming is resumed, I would urge any lover of live music to go and see the Dropkicks. They do it properly. To be honest, I'm more excited to see the Dropkicks at Fenway, than the Brooce cameo. I guess they'll play Tessie.
  9. I should mention to any other Antipodeans that I am not using a VPN. It doesn't appear to be Geo blocked.
  10. AppleTV was a bust but I am now watching it on the Jersey Devils page. Missed Bruce and JBJ though. Did they indicate that they might be back? What was the setting for BFS?
  11. Is anyone outside of the Land of the Free and The Home of The Brave seeing anything on AppleTV? I am using the app on Ms Bear's iPad (I hate Apple) but don;t see anything about this. Maybe we don't get it down here.
  12. I should have anticipated Commie Tommy coming up in any mention of HH. I'm surprised it wasn't Daisey mentioning him. I would love to hear some tasteful Morello guitar solos over Sugarland, Richfield Whistle, Klansmen etc. We're going ok over here Daisey. As usual when we follow the Kiwi's lead, it works pretty well. My work lends itself pretty well to the Work From Home thing. I've never been busier. And I haven't been on a plane for months, so as the great philosopher, Mark Gillespie once said, "You know you should be grateful for small mercies".
