Original version:

Hello again everybody, this is Wayne of the Flaming Lips category, and I'm talking into Clifford's computer, and he's going to add my voice to this wonderful compilation that he put together just for you. We let him pick and choose his favorites from our vast collection of live recordings that we've catalogued over this years. The recordings range from 1986 to 1996 and feature a little bit of all of the different lineups that we've had. Now this CD is meant as a bootleg giveaway that will be presented to all those who attend the first showings of Brad Beesley's spectacular documentary film The Fearless Freaks. This film follows the life and times of Steven, Michael, and myself, and has lots of embarrassing clips of us with weird haircuts and bad clothes. And though the CD is a very limited run of only a few hundred, all who can are urged to copy it and put it on the internet and do whatever you can do with it. Please, please, do not pay hard-earned money for it. So, I hope you enjoy the film, and I hope you enjoy this CD. We'll see you somewhere out there in the world. This is Wayne and the fellows. Goodbye.

Fearless Freaks version:

Check 1, 2. Hello again everybody, this is Wayne of the Flaming Lips category. This CD that you're listening to is a kind of revamped version of a compilation that we gave out at the South by Southwest film premier of Brad Beesley's documentary The Fearless Freaks. That CD was received with such delight that we felt a little embarrassed at having manufactured so few of them. So, like I said, this is a revised version of that previous CD with a couple of changes made. There is a track from our new record, At War With the Mystics, this song is called "Free Radicals." You'll find that on here. And we've also included a very hard to find, if not impossible to find, track called "Enthusiasm for Life Defeats Existential Fear." Of course, you know that's right. So anyway, we hope you enjoy it, and speaking on behalf of Michael and Steven, the Flaming Lips say once again thank you to all of you out there who have over the years supported us and continue to believe in us. You've given us a great, great life, and, really, everything we do is because of you. So anyway, we love you, and we'll see you somewhere out there in the world.
