Release Notes

  • This is a bootleg from the original broadcast on KROQ-FM. For a transcription of the conversation between Jerry Kay and FZ framing this broadcast see interview Tape It!.
  • The studio bits come after the preceding track, except in Punky's Whips ("Whatever happened to all the fun in the world?") and Regyptian Strut ("...L-l-l-l-...LEATHER..."). In two situations, these can be found before and after a track; Tryin' To Grow A Chin ("...What?" "Leather!" precedes track, "...You don't like fag bars?..." comes after the song.) and Honey Don't You Want A Man Like Me ("...What, your talent for sucking?..." precedes, with "...He's not interested in Leather. Shit..." coming after the song.)
