The Palace was a smooth, symmetrical oval of a bathtub, typical of mid-90s basketball arenas. We had experienced a number of shows there, so the routine had a comfortable familiarity about it.

Greatest Story has always been popular with me, particularly as an opener, and Bertha’s odd rhythms and relative personal rarity also made it a favorite. Eternity was unfortunately branded among our crowd as one of the weaker “new” songs, but all in all it was a decent set list with which to open our part of the tour.

Victim or the Crime really needs to be experienced, preferably live, with an openness to possible personal lyrical interpretations to be fully appreciated. Perhaps most important to understand about this composition is its structure—the persistently dark drone (often also lit that way by Candace with subtle and sickly shades of violet and green) inevitably decays into chaos, followed by a futile resurrection to some semblance of order, only to devolve again into darkness. After several waves of increasingly fruitless attempts at salvation, the melody and even the rhythm is abandoned in a mire of despair. For those who were in the know, the stark honesty of the performance was painful to experience. Foolish Heart was not an uncommon follow-up, also painfully evocative with its “Valentines of flesh and blood”. It’s All Too Much, Last Time and SOTM added to the darkly prophetic theme.
