Country: United States
Beck plays a short festival set at the KROQ Weenie Roast. Somewhat subversively, Beck plays a bunch of his loud noisy rock songs. "Asskizz" is particularly impressive. After a few loud things, Beck tosses out a quiet "Bogusflow," which feels pretty out of place.
Beck announces "Loser" as "KROQ Gave Me A Frisbee And I Threw It, But It Flew Back And Hit Me In The Face." He then sings "I'm a goldfish baby, so why don't you feed me?" for the chorus. For some reason, for years the Beck.com tour section said that the "Loser" tonight was performed as "KROQ Set My Dick on Fire" but I don't hear any evidence of that on this tape...
