Any day at load-in time
Like fallen fruits of ROCK you'll find
them strewn across the venue floor
The setlists of the night before

Other bands' setlists - Movin In
Other bands' setlists - U Own Me

Other bands' setlists - Gold Digger Haircut
Other bands' setlists - We Heart The Doms

No matter what the type of band
Their setlists will sound gothic and
Slightly pompous and obsessed
With their's or someone else's death

Other bands' setlists - Intro
Other bands' setlists - Redneck
Other bands' setlists - Beond Anger
Other bands' setlists - Blood on my foot
Other bands' setlists - I Cant Die

Laser printed on A4
Double spaced with two encores
Was this the font that rocked the place
And won the quarter finals of the local band showcase?

Other bands' setlists - Run Or Hide
Other bands' setlists - Soul
Other bands' setlists - Freeze The Sun
Other bands' setlists - The Big Issue

Was this one writ in blood fresh gouged
Or did the drummer's normal biro just run out?
I wonder if the singer's well
And where on earth he learnt to spell?

Other bands' setlists - Pretty Maybe To Pretty
Other bands' setlists - Love You Till I Die
Other bands' setlists - Happy Song
Other bands' setlists - Take It Away
Other bands' setlists - Chorus Twice At End

The moral of the song is this
If you don't want tomorrow's band to take the piss
Even if your stuff's dead good
Always pick your setlist up

This song was written during the TOUR for WE VALIDATE! in July 2006. We'd discussed the idea at some length of writing something ON THE ROAD, and many ideas for suitable topics were thrown around, until Tim pointed out that the setlists we always found on our travels would be pretty ideal. Unfortunately the one we found in Birmingham which first inspired it (featuring "Intro", "B#" and that great set-closer "Jaded") was never picked up, but all the others are completely genuine, coming from Brighton, Hull, Birmingham, Hull, and ... er... sort of our Leicester gig, but rejigged a bit to make it rhyme. I got a bit stuck for the verses, and Mr Francis Albert Machine suggested mentioning Local Band Showcases and having each song as a seperate line of singing, and the idea of How To Do It evolved there and then in the Prince Albert in Brighton, but I didn't actually sit down to WRITE it properly until the afternoon of July 27th. The plan was to go to Frankie's house on the way to Nottingham to record it in his front room, so I ended up having three quarters of an hour to write ALL the verses before we set off. I really enjoy this sort of thing, and did it with about five minutes to spare - each verse actually pretty much describes the setlist that comes after it, although that's slightly lost if you can't see them! Anyway, we drove off to Woodhouse Eaves to collect The Pattisons with me singing it to Tom on the way, then we had a bit of a practice on the way to Derby... before getting stuck in traffic, so it didn't get done that day. PENDING!
