What's funny about that airport scene is that there is a bit of lead up to it.

When he is performing on stage, they zoom in on a certain area a few times.

Then the airport scene. Classic!!!

Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?

The song lyrics, well, the funniest bits of the movie, like this for example:


SEX FARM

Working on a sex farm
Trying to raise some hard love
Getting out my pitch fork
Poking your hay

Scratching in your hen house
Sniffing at your feedbag
Slipping out your back door
Leaving my spray

Sex farm woman, I'm gonna mow you down
Sex farm woman, I'll rake and hoe you down
Sex farm woman, don't you see my silo rising high?

Working on a sex farm
Hosing down your barn door
Bothering you livestock
They know what I need

Working up a hot sweat
Crouching in your pea patch
Plowing through your bean field
Planting my seed

Sex farm woman, I'll be your hired hand
Sex farm woman, I'll let my offer stand
Sex farm woman, don't you hear my tractor rumbling by?

Working on a sex farm
Trying to raise some hard love
Getting out my pitch fork
Poking your hay

My fave was always Big Bottoms.

The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin'
That's what I said
The looser the waistband, the deeper the quicksand
Or so I have read

My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo
I'd like to sink her with my pink torpedo

Big bottom, big bottom
Talk about bum cakes, my girl's got 'em
Big bottom drive me out of my mind
How could I leave this behind?

I met her on Monday, 'twas my lucky bun day
You know what I mean
I love her each weekday, each velvety cheek day
You know what I mean

My love gun's loaded and she's in my sights
Big game is waiting there inside her tights, yeah

Big bottom, big bottom
Talk about mud flaps, my girl's got 'em
Big bottom drive me out of my mind
How could I leave this behind?

My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo
I'd like to sink her with my pink torpedo

Big bottom, big bottom
Talk about bum cakes, my girl's got 'em
Big bottom drive me out of my mind
How could I leave this behind?

I just saw the 4 plus hour version, or at least I saw most of it. Has anyone seen the bootleg version?

Mine ended as the theatrical cut did with them playing a concert in Japan, but I heard a rumor there was 30+ minutes after that.

Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Drummer spontaneously combusts, then there's clips of the japan show & that's it.
I'm sure it's more like 5+ hours, but i did have to pause it a few times, so that'll add to the runtime.
Quality on my version is fucking horrible though, so i wouldn't be surprised if the vhs source's tape was stretched so much that some scenes ran slower than they should have.
The poor telecine quality, vhs deterioration & the runtime all make it even more documentary like.
Worth a watch if you can find it & have an afternoon to spare.

Saucy Jack is up as a free download on the official site.
I'm guessing they release it to promote the new album & one night only world tour.

Rumors are floating around that they'll be playing Glasto this year, on the Sunday afternoon.
Others say it's Saturday night on the main stage. Dunno what to make of that.
