I still don't like YLU in the middle of the set. Think they should either start or finish with it.

In the continuing effort to rebuild/complete MSPpedia I'm getting ready to tackle the Gigography once and for all and I thought it'd be an idea to follow up Amanda's hard work and update her absolutely amazing list of the setlist quotes used. So I throw it open to you lovely people to help fill it in a bit. Scans or photos of any setlists would be great and I'll add you to the thank you page on MSPpedia (what more incentive could you want?!). Post here or any lurkers tweet/DM @MSPpedia/ @FDForum or their respective Facebook pages. Thank you.

A copy and pasted the quote list into a word document, printed it out and took it home to study. The list does give you insight into the band and Nicky.

I would assume that it's Nicky's responsibility for the quote. There's the constant theme of memory in the quotes chosen. Also the strong feeling of the quotes coming from outsiders and quotes looking at the theme of being different. In later years there are more and more quotes to do with painting or quotes from artists. It shows how much into art Nicky really is. The quotes do seem to match the mood of the album and tour. What made me smile was a quote from Will Self which came from an UK Esquire magazine article. I found it comforting to know that Nicky and I read the same magazine. I consider Will Self one of the true last great writers and thinkers left. Reading through the quote list made me wonder, what would my profound quote be that I would leave to the world after I've shuffled off?

Not a set list quote but an amendment needed 30/9/2010 to Aberdeen Music Hall, and not Aberdeen Corn Exchange

Do you want any scans of a set list you already have a quote for?
