Silence is Sexy
They played one continuous set.  I have just made an arbitrary split into two parts.  I have taken out a lot of the applause, shouts for "more" etc. between Selbsportrait... and Silence is Sexy.  There were some announcements but they were not very distinct and I picked up a lot of audience chatter.

This is my own recording.  A memory stick with a recording of the concert (plus the show the following day at Relentless Garage) was on sale but I didn't buy it.
