Just found this in the attic ... a scrap book cutting that I seem to remember came from either Melody Maker or NME around 1986.

Possible gig quotes? p*ss take?
Persoanlly I like number 10!

ANDREW ELDRITCH

2 - I'm just like perfectly happy with the number of teeth I've got, thanks - Los Angeles '83
3 - You are nice - Hull '83
4 - It's just that I'm not very good at small talk, sorry - Hull '85
5 - Maybe I should tell some leper jokes like we did in Boston - Los Angeles '83
7 - Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha - York '84
8 - You're just angry cos you don't get to be a riding anymore - Hull '85

Haven't heard all of them, but there's some there that are definitely genuine, so it's likely the rest are too.

(Number 10 is one of the definites, by the way.)

There were threads about one liners. The last one about a year ago. Cannot find it now. :evil: Anybody?

Here are some from the 90's era:

"Isn't it strange who turns up on a day like this" (CP 1993)
"There are some strange looking people out here, I hope you're not with me" (CP 1993)
"This is for the guy who looks like Rutger Hauer" (CP 93)
"When this is a civilized European city we'll be pleased to play here. Until such a time, we will walk the wire" (Forum 98)
"We are the light at the end of your sorry little tunnel" (Forum 98)
"What did you come as? We came as a rock 'n roll band. And a damn fine one" (Forum 98)
"How diplomatic of me to have forgotten what this is all about...Giving Ground" (Hildesheim 2000)
"Anybody figured out yet why we like to play the least often in the places where the most crap is written about us?" (Forum 1998)

"Excuse my bluntness" muttered somewhere in 2003 before FALAA.

My favourite from this year is "This is called where's my eightball" before ToL in Nickelsdorf, as it was the last song and they were playing before Depeche... :)

"This is my favourite place on the planet", right after São Paulo's gig, Brazil.

Just a question: was he mentioning the stage or the city? Anyway, got really flattered!

"I just know you're going to hate this..." (before singing He's Got The Whole World In his Hand - good to see the massed ranks of the black-clad faithful singing along :lol: ...although there were some lyrics in there that I don't remember from primary school...)

"More songs about sex violence and drugs - aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh..."
before Body Electric, NEC 92

"We've heard some crap recently - we've got a feeling we're about to read some more. This is called "I really don't care anymore."
before Amphetamine Logic, NEC 92

"Your problem is, you were always 10 years too early."

He could have said whatever he wanted at the Astoria, couldn't hear it.

No, I'm not letting this lie am I? :lol:

From an interview for the Brazilian press, back to 1990:

I: So, what have you been doing during those years? (from 87 to 90)
A: I continued to live and started drinking again.

Ps.: As it's translated into Portuguese, don't know his actual words... in Portuguese: "Continuei a viver e voltei a beber."

Some concerts can be little goldmines. The Trojan Horse gig (available in Sharing) has a few beauts:

"You've got to excuse us for just playing the songs, because our Dutch isn't what it should be. You're not Dutch, I know this, how do I know? Nah, go away, you've got Scottish written all over your bum."

(After another ToL tease) "That was cruel, sorry about that. It's his birthday so he's gotta be indulged."

Mr. E made a comment about The Glasgow Celtic vs Some Foreign Team (cue the Big Yin) (at the whistle blow, sometimes known as Mr. E exits stage left) before Top Nite Out/Snubnose. Returns and inserts into Vision Thing '2003, Glasgow Barras' the tried and tested "this war is wrong!" Zzzzzzzz! Yeah, I think we all ken that. Next!

After being such a fanboy for so many years, I want my money back. :|

they were complete and utter shyte that night, :( even tho' the palyed Never Land (a version)

I still want my money back :urff:
