Looking on Graham's site, it was the opening track on the Rock Art 99 Europe tour.

Yes, he played it when I saw him at Glasgow Barrowlands in 1999.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

It's weird that Ocean of Dreams wasn't included in The Hellcat Years set, isn't it? Is it just because it was never officially released?

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)

Yes and the fact that it's not a Mescaleros track. Steve Jones & Joe.

I got a little misty eyed reading that.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Same. I remember how heartbreaking it was watching that doc and him pretty much begging people to see his show.

I think Teddy posted that the boardwalk scene upset some of Joe's friends (I think Don walked out of the screening?) because it was filmed as a gag and presented as something else.

Yeah, it certainly did not come off as funny, if that was the intention.
