Recording: Audience


  1. I was at this show. This wasn't the only time they played St. Andrew's. They also played there earlier that same year, in August. I can't remember the exact date. This show was much cleaner (they were sober). The August show was pure Mats. They signed autographs at Sam's Jams earlier in the day and were already drinking. By showtime, they were inebriated. Barely made it through any of the songs. I remember Tommy and Paul arm wrestling on stage at one point. Tommy played Unsatisfied sitting on my buddy's stomach after he'd jumped on stage.

  2. I was at that August show as well...everybody was throwing around photos of Bob...I remember the arm wrestling as started out as Born in the USA...devolved from there...
