Corgan: Good evening, how are you?
Iha: Someone wanna take care of that guy there, that guy's a problem
Corgan: Please kick this guy out
Iha: The guy with the Ozzy Osbourne t-shirt
Corgan: Sorry it's so cold, should be warm in summer

Corgan: Thank you very much, that's a song from our next album which will never be made. This is another one from that sophomore slump album called 'Hummer'
Corgan: Thank you very kindly, we really appreciate you coming tonight. I hope you feel special... we don't. Here's a song that wasn't good enough to be on our first album but we still like it anyway. This is [unintellgible]
Iha: Thank you very much
Audience member: Tristessa!
Corgan: Oh yeah, we're playing all the rock hits tonight. This is a song by Mr. Syd Barrett as sung by James St James
Corgan: Yes.. is everybody out there? It's like so quiet, I guess that's good, but... we're used to that decadent rock n roll atmosphere
Iha: We're used to people moshing around
Corgan: And no one's abusing us
Iha: Hurl insults if you will
Iha: Thank you
Corgan: This next song is about my little brother who's standing right here, and I wanted to know if he'd wanted to come up onstage and play with us. This is called 'Spaceboy', if you knew him you'd understand, it's not a bad... [tunes] guitar tuning
Corgan: On tambourine.. Jesse! This is only the second time we've ever played this song live so...and it will be much better than the first time, if you were
Wretzky: I don't know the last time was three years so have patience
Audience member: Getting old!
Iha: We dedicate this set to the man with the Ozzy Osbourne t-shirt... Nick ?? Corgan: Yes, you've [unintelligible]
Corgan: Thank you very much
Iha: We'd like to introduce our friend here, a man named Eric, a man of a cello and of many good deeds
Corgan: [unintelligible] doing the deed
Iha: He flew up all the way from Iowa just to do the show and the amazing thing, he had never heard of us before
Corgan: And he's never heard these songs. Here's a song off that debut album called 'Fish', this is 'Suffrage of the First World'
Wretzky: I wanna say thanks to all my friends and family and everyone else who didn't have anything better to do tonight
Corgan: I hate guitar by the way, in case you're interested... Jimmy hates it This here's another one of those next album songs, this is called 'Luna'
Iha: At this time we'd like to welcome the man Kerry Brown to the stage
Corgan: Kerry's in that new wave band Catherine
Iha: He's a man of good deeds as well
Corgan: This is where we prove like completely out of league, we don't know what we're doing [unintelligible]. This song does not have a name or any words
Corgan: This is our last song and we'd like to dedicate it to you with all our rusty bad hearts. Thank you very much coming, we hope you've had a good time. The show tomorrow night will be chanting
Iha: We're bringing in kind of a ?? act to embellish it
[encore break]
Iha: OK we'll dispense with the stools. Hey, do you think you're in a [unintelligible] We shall turn to 11 for you now
