review by Mick C
There is a cut between Flowers and Bags where the tape was turned.
There's a fade between Public image & Rise.
There's a final fadeout after Annalisa.
The first 9 songs from this show are featured on the bootleg LP 'More Bermuda Than Pizza' and recorded from a different source than this recording.
This is definitely one of my favourite recordings from the '86 tour, due to the quality of the recording and the strength of the performance. As usual John is having problems with spitting which begins as early as FFF and reaches a peak during Pretty Vacant after which Lydon orders the crowd to pack it in.
Its the standard set with Rise and Annalisa being performed as encores. There's plently of good banter and a few threats for good measure to make this an interesting gig.
During Rise Lydon gets hit with a handful of coins and beseeches the security to deal with the perpetrator. A real must have for any fans of the '86 line up!
A particularly funny moment that should be noted is that during the outro of FFF, Lu must have pressed the wrong key and instead of the 'backwards bit' we get a few samples of "Poptones... Poptones"
