(*)’First course’ – pierwsze danie (aluzja do tytułu płyty)


Some of the ‚verbals’ were intentionally edited due to their arguably contentious and libellous nature. Others, namely the ‚Rome & Die’ intro were unintentionally omitted due to the fact that ‚Hair Bear’ used the DAT machine to play his favourite farmyard noises as introduced, taking the gig DAT out of record mode.

The story related to my first visit to Luzern during a school trip in 1970. I was still recovering from the previous five days in Rome which had been mostly spent in a hotel lavatory due to my ignorance of exotic fruit!
