Chapel Hill: It was raining and sad as hell and the Swans played their set to jeering cowboys. Chapel Hill is one of the hippest places on earth to play, but in 1982 we were underground even for this place ... In the van the Swans fought among themselves. Morale was very low and tempers were short. Our expectations were not as high as Mike's maybe, and we never fight among ourselves when we're traveling with another band that does; they do it for us.

Georgia: In Athens, Mike Gira jumped off the stage and pushed someone who was pogoing to their music, then he returned to the stage and apologized ... Mike thought the guy was a poser who was making fun of him. In reality he was a nerd and Mike had never seen a nerd before. Thurston tried to discourage his sister, Susan, from coming to the show, because either he thought we were gonna suck or he thought he might have to protect her. He told her she'd be raped and murdered if she came, and at the time I thought it was just a ploy because she's so gullible, but now I realize he probably half believed it.
