November 5, 1996 Vera – Groningen, Holland

Show Notes

This Fastbacks’ show featured an unusual opening act–billed as “The What”–consisting of Fastbacks’ members Kurt Bloch (bass) and Mike Musburger (drums), with Ed appearing and playing guitar and singing. Ed explains that since The Fastbacks supported PJ for the whole tour, it was only fair to repay the favor (and that actually he just wanted an excuse to come back). Before playing ‘Lukin,’ Ed says, “As long as I’m here, I may as well promote my new record … this one’s dedicated as always to Mr. Matt Lukin. He’s been here before.” During a quiet passage of ‘Naked Eye,’ some fool yells “fuck you.” Ed replies, “Yeah, you too. It’s no big deal. I mean, I don’t have to be here. I’m just gonna finish the song and watch The Fastbacks,” and that’s just what he does. At the end of The Fastbacks’ set, Ed again joins then others to play the obscure ‘Girl’s Eyes,’ written by Keith Moon in 1967, followed by a crisp, upbeat version of ‘Leaving Here.’ With tickets at approx. $4, what a deal! (PJ played at this small club 3/1/92.)
