Notes: This one starts out after the first song, Cold & Ugly (unfortunately missing), with a little bit of crowd noise. Then it begins; one hell of a solid board. Inparticular, this one has a very grungy sound - particularly in the left channel; Adam's guitar skills are evident here. Man, listen to the almost dialetic call>answer on Sweat that MJK seems to be almost chanting (with the delay, will blow your little mind). This recording is floating around - it is. In early 2008, cu.org shared this via FLAC with members on the forum for two reasons; 1) to give something cool out & 2) to see where that led to. You know what happened? Just what I thought was going to. Some people got it & torrented it. Some people took it, put it to MP3. Many neglected to carry the source info. Did a search once; found this recording on places like piratebay, what.cd & random sites. Furthermore, I saw this on eBay at one point --- from Europe, isn't that sort of funny? Awful. This was an experiment gone wrong. A social "Tool experiment" to see if Tool collectors and/or people are capable of handling something as cool as a high quality, rare SBD? Is there hope - nope. And there you have it.
Cold & Ugly
MJK: Hi, we are the Slamming Watusi's & my name is Lee A Popa. I wish.
Paul: Bonjour! This song is called Sober.
Paul: This song is about the little baby Jesus.
MJK: Jesus. (whispered)
