(JP: 'A good ole good one from yesteryear, Altered Images, A Days Wait, I think that was recorded back in one of those periods when it was alright to like Altered Images I'm not quite sure, probably because it was produced by Steve Severin and frankly I've become so confused whether it's alright to like them or not these days that I've giving up trying to keep up with it')
(JP: 'It seems to be a long time since we heard from Toten Hosen and I had requests mainly from people at Peel Acres actually to play Bommerlunder once again, so here it comes I'm afraid, here's a real song for you')
(JP: 'I wonder what became of the Table')
