Topic: Question about Brixton Academy Dec. 14 '92 (Stray Slack, S&E reissue)

This is a very silly question. At the start and conclusion of the first track, "Conduit for Sale," somebody is blowing a whistle. Does anyone know if the whistle was blown by someone in the band (Bob or Gary, I'd guess)? Or was it someone in the audience? Was this something people did at shows in '92? Could they have it have been ravers who ended up an indie rock show?

I this is silly but it's been on my mind.

Huh, interesting question, I always just assumed it was Bob adding some flavor but who knows...

I have no idea really either. This is the first complete live recording I ever heard of the band. Picked up the 12" Stray Slack from a record store in Pensacola, FL on family vacation, circa 1996.

I've been the opposite. I always assumed it was an audience member. But it's pretty loud, louder than crowd noises usually are, and I've started to think it might be from the stage.

Whatever the origin, it is a pretty cool feature of the recording.

Rad. My first non-arena show was Foo Fighters with Jawbreaker and The Amps in a smallish club in 1996. My brother and I were very excited that Nate Mendel stood next to us while Jawbreaker played. We did not realize Kim Deal was in The Amps until she took the stage.
