"Frankly, I have many favorites, not just in that tour. I chose Dortmund 2 Lovetown because it has so many great performances, including perhaps the best Bad and NYD ever. The crowd is one of the loudest you'll find in a bootleg. I also love Rotterdam 2 and 4 and from the UF tour Glasgow 2."
"It was quite hard for the band to shift from having played to loops of other people to playing to loops of themselves. We felt it was essential to do that, though, because you can get very lazy with samples. They're an easy way to get the ball rolling, but you're always in danger of sounding like some basic samples with the band on top. You're in danger of being dictated to by what's there, rather than saying: 'this is just our springboard'."
