Eldritch Quotes from during the gig

  • Anaconda´s intro: "This is going to be our next single ... Anaconda... "
  • Valentine similar: "A new one ..." and ends "...thank you, we just tune up a bit"
  • 1969 starts with some repetitive, aggressive shouts of: "Kiss, Shoot..."
  • Remark before Damage Done: "This is our first ... damage... "
    while saying "first", Andrew Eldritch slightly bursts into a laughter.
