Track Name: Furious
...well you'll have to get on to the parents & say "...or it'll be £11 for another bottle".

...one of your mates has taken it out of your house, Craig...

Right, so that isn't very nice, is it for starters? What else has gone? If you haven't gone up in the bedroom... If I had money lying around, our money can go.

Well you'd better get to the bottom of this, yeah, 'cause he hasn't got a drink now & he's f***ing furious, I tell ya!

One of 'em has took it & we don't know when it's...no...you'll have to get it off Ben.

You'll soon find out when you grill 'em!

A bottle of Teachers' Scotch whiskey it is & it was in a box.

Well, you'll have to go round there & grill 'em & make sure & tell 'em all that they're not coming round here again. 'Cause someone's a thief' then. If you haven't took it, someone's a thief.

It's been...you don't know who's took it - it's your ??? & you don't know why.

...And Phil came in about quarter past nine.
Track Name: Spinehead
Um, I use a lot of strange focuses with the head, where the head sort of falls off the spine.

You may spot images, like someone prostrated.

Um, I use a lot of strange focuses with the head, where the head sort of falls off the spine & so the stillnesses & the different angles that the bodies are presented on stage - these all add to - what you say - that sort of feeling of inner concentration.

You wanted to be there & then you moved away...

You may spot images, like someone prostrated.

It's just a little timing thing.

Um, I use a lot of strange focuses with the head, where the head sort of falls off the spine.

To give, to project emotion, you have always to be doubtful about what you do, about what you are going to do & what you did also, because to doubt & to take risk create like a moment of "urgence" to find real emotion.

And they sort of share a sense of maybe um, foreboding & yet they can't, they can't express this maybe um, foreboding.

And because of the intensity of the silence, this makes it quite um...

Um, I use a lot of strange focuses with the head, where the head sort of falls off the spine & that actually does cause a physical feeling of dizziness.

RICHARD: LOOK, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW ME, THEN JUST SAY SO.
Track Name: A New Energy Takes Over
The medative mind is quiet, it is balanced. Yet one's awareness is heightened to a new dimension of experience - not through mind, or cerebral energy - but rather as the cerebral energy ceases, a new energy takes over.
Track Name: That Creature
Her face...

If she came from the same place that cat did, it's a wonder you could still recognize her as a woman.

The cat's body is still extremely radioactive - you're lucky your burns weren't even more serious.

Don't worry about me. It's that creature, that woman I'm worried about. We've got to do something about that creature.

He's right Professor, we've got to stop her from getting off this island, before she goes & kills somebody else.

After I succeeded in bringing through that cat, I knew I was on the right track. It was just a matter of pushing the apparatus to its limits.

Cat?! You call that horrible thing a cat?

I thought that I'd contacted savages & the cat was something their witch-doctors had made.

Nobody made it that way - it was born that way - it's a mutation, a freak, caused by excess radiation in the atmosphere.

That explains that woman - her face...
Track Name: Silent Liar
Everyone would be like "(funny noise)".

And then usually, it would be "Let us pray" and it would be "Oh dear heavenly father, father we are your children, father.
Help us, help us to open up our hearts to one another, father.
Please help us to overcome our pride, our selfishness, father.
And make a dedication, father, to learning more about your truth, oh..."

And everyone would be like "(funny noise)".
And everyone would be like "(funny noise)".
