This song is the epitome of awesome. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 03:08, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

okay![edit]

i think this recording is from the december 28 show — i wouldn't be entirely surprised if it wasn't, though, because flans may have used setlist "notes" frequently or even recylced setlists. but, at the very end of the recording, flans (or linnell? i think it's flans) can be heard saying "okay, pop song", as though that describes the next song queued up. "pop" is the note next to "youth culture killed my dog", the song following "happy" in the setlist for the december show. this leads me to two assumptions: 1) other unlimited july recordings marked "Live 1985" are from this show as well (though almost certainly not all); 2) though i suppose it was already clear, they have a full recording of the 1985 show and they're holding out on us. but, since flans apparently has multiple paper archives related to this show, i think it's especially likely that he has the cassette of this one in its entirety. -Apollo (colloquia!) 11:50, 16 July 2013 (EDT)

furthermore, i always suspected the bass note following "the big big whoredom" in unlimited sounded like the intro to "hell hotel" — lo and behold, their setlist positions verify it. -Apollo (colloquia!) 11:51, 16 July 2013 (EDT)
saying the "1999 - cowtown" medley belongs to this show as well might be a bit of a stretch, but just noting here that at the end a john can be heard saying "thank you", as though indeed it is the last song? it's hard to say, though, because 1) "1999" is not on the setlist; 2) a year is not specified for this recording, and i don't know where we got 1985 from in the first place; 3) it could just be a regular, non-closer "thank you", of course. -Apollo (colloquia!) 11:56, 16 July 2013 (EDT)
