Never tried to pronounce that, partly because I never use BTBS. I just abbreviate it as Bullet.

Studio Bullet has nothing on any 90s version.

Confession time: I don't like the start of RTSS with the twangy guitar. It has no point and sounds awful!

11 August 1993, London is one of his most insane performances ever.

Outside it's America
Yeah, America! Where the fuck are you?
United Kingdom, where the fuck are you?
Fuck you, France!
Fuck you, Germany!
Zoonited Nations! ZOONITED NATIONS!

if Shellfish isnt' my leaset favorite track, then it's Bullet, but I still like those songs.

I think RTSS benefitted most fom the remaster, because I enver heared those tinkly bells befre it.

God I vucking lvoe this sng.




and Anna I like your reminiscings. Really the only msusical intrrsts I got from my parents were Pink Floyd's The Wall from my dad, and Black Sabbith from his as welll, and my obession with the 80s from my mum

They could've just as easily started the song at 23 seconds in.


Also, RTSS is my freaking song. I'm liable to start weeping right here, I haven't listened to it in a while, but it's very close to my heart. ZooTV broken hallelujahs for the fucking win.

When I was youner and SUPER obessesed with U2, I watched Bono on Charlie Rose, and they cut to a video of RTSS showing Bono acting out shooting up Heroin. I 'd laways wanted to see that performance again, and it only awned on my last year that i was watching the performance from ZooTV ausieland, evnen though I've seen taht video a bajillion times.

She will...
Suffer the needle chill
She's running to stand... still.

Ah, halle, hallelujah
halle, halle, hallelujah

Oh, good then, because I'd be hideously jealous of you if you'd seen Lovetown.

Yeah, that was generally the deal with my parents. Mum especially liked playing Dire Straits and Talking Heads, two bands forever connected in my mind even though there isn't exactly a connection between them! And then my father digs Queen.

But I really latched onto The Shadows, my Grandad's favourite band. I fucking LOVED them. Still do. Hank Marvin is my favourite guitarist, and really, The Shadows are why I listen to music at all. I get incredibly nostalgic listening to some songs; they bring back the most vivid mental images of childhood in New Zealand.
