      there is a song off of a bootleg called Zoom, where Ed phones into a radio station and sings it over the air. he ends the song screaming “we’re all doomed”. GET IT! You’ll be glad you did. it was 1996 and the title was New Songs 3, or something close to that. Mostly No Code songs. I’ve looking for just that bit for a long time. good luck.

        I have that CD. If you need that song or the CD itself, let me know. I was huge into them and bought all the bootlegs and stuff that I could back then. My first concert was Hartford ’96. I actually was maced by the police while I was at the show because I was moshing, but it was still amazing.

    11. Scott says:

      Hey guys,

      I’ve been all over the net looking for EV’s solo shows from Philadelphia(Tower Theatre) and DC(Warren Theatre). If anyone has these I would much appreciate if we could link up.

      Thanks everyone!

      Scott

      • gremmie says:

        Scott,

        The reason we don’t host the Ed solo shows is because the TenClub has specifically asked us not to. I have gone back and forth with them a couple of times to see if their stance has changed – but so far, nothing has. If there’s a change and we’re able to host the shows, we’ll be sure and have them all up.

    12. tom keister says:

      andy its boredone12000@yahoo.com. thank you so much

    13. Scott says:

      Gremmie, thank you. DVD, CD come on TEN CLUB stop holding back, have cash, will pay!
