Back To Bands

During the recording of the CD we decided that we would do a re-union tour to support the albums with the recording line up. At the tail end of February Alvin and Charlie arrived back in San Francisco for rehearsals. They were both sick with the flu. We rehearsed mostly new material for a few days before our first show in Bakersfield CA. The set we decided on was as follows, but changed somewhat during the course of the tour:
  • Jump on it (From the “Quintessentials” album)
  • Your Ego (From the “Quintessentials” album)
  • State Of Alert (From the “Quintessentials” album)
  • Endangered Species (From the “Endangered Species” album)
  • War On The Pentagon (From the “Quintessentials” album)
  • Quintessentials (From the “Quintessentials” album)
  • Cyberjunk (From the “Riot” album)
  • Emotional Blackmail (From the “Brand New Age” album)
  • Warhead (From the “Brand New Age” album)
  • AK47 (From the “Quintessentials” album)
  • Rebel Radio (From the “Riot” album)
  • Mouth On A Stick (From the “Quintessentials” album)
  • Bitter & Twisted (From the “Quintessentials” album)
  • Squat 96 (From the “Quintessentials” album)
  • Outside Society (From the “Quintessentials” album)
  • Crash Course (From the “Another Kind Of Blues” album)
  • Riot (From the “Riot” album)
  • New York State Police (From the B side of the Teenage single)

Encore songs were chosen from this list:

  • You Don’t Belong (From the “Diminished Responsibility” album)
  • C.I.D. (From the “Another Kind Of Blues” album)
  • Tommorow’s Girls (From the “Another Kind Of Blues” album)
  • I Live in a Car (From the Another Kind Of Blues” album)
  • Strangle Hold (From the “Another Kind Of Blues” album)
  • Party In Paris (From the “Diminished Responsibility” album)

After looking into truck rentals prices I decided to buy a tour bus and sell it after the tour. Samiam on hiatus, decided to get rid of the bus they had used for a number of years touring the US and Canada. Already customized for bands, the 24 foot long airport shuttle had five bunk beds, TV and VCR and cargo area at the back. It was also a full height vehicle so during the longer drives you could get up and stretch your legs.I asks Pittsburgh’s “Anti-Flag” to open on the tour to help ensure better attendance as their album “Die For The Government” was starting to sell very well. Anti-Flag were all ready on tour and showed up at my house in San Francisco with van troubles.
