Japan Live 1981
Set list: Burning Bridges, Swing (with a different intro to the album version), Gentlemen Take Polaroids, Alien, ...Rhodesia, Quiet Life, My New Career, Obscure Alternatives (new arrangement, very different), Taking Islands In Africa, Methods Of Dance, Aint That Peculiar, Sometimes I Feel So Low, Halloween, European Son (new arrangement), Life In Tokyo, Adolescent Sex (new arrangement, very different), Automatic Gun. A lot of bootleg tapes for this tour give dates from April 1981, but they are all wrong.
There was an
equipment problem at one of
the dates (Sapporo?) and so some acoustic, piano and vocal numbers were
played e.g. The
Other Side Of Life.
