01/28/96 Melbourne, Australia, RAS Showgrounds (Big Day Out festival)

From Jason--
I was at the Melbourne Big Day Out Show... It was an experience and a half... I am an Aboriginal Australian, to see a guy that is so near to being a god come out as an encore, to say "Well you can't leave a country before jamming with the locals", out walked a troupe of Aboriginal musicians to accompany Porno For Pyros in an absolutely earth moving rendition of the old Janes track 'Chip Away'... I mean minds exploded around me... stomping, writhing rain dances, all accompanied by the boom of didgeridos... years later and it still chills me... racial harmony for an evening supplied by Perry.
