On the last two gigs of the reunion tour they also went back to an old favourite, a looped version of the intro to 'Faith Healer' by SAHB.

 Thanks Alex 
 I've heard all them , still does not help me with the
 other intro being played on this tour 
 As there were Four I am guessing each member of the band has
 picked their own choice.

 I’ve heard the use “Booids” by the Sensational
 Alex Harvey Band, “Force & Fire” from Jaz’s thing
 with Ann Dudley (Songs from the Victorious City), “ Tales
 of the Future” by Vangelis (from the “Blade Runner”
 soundtrack) and … yes … “Masked Ball” from “Ass
 Wide Shit.”

 Yeah I certainly don't recall them using that
 as intro pre Eyes Wide Shut.
 Anyway as I
 was already aware of who wrote that particular piece what I
 wanted to know was the name
 of the piece of music before it.

 "The Eyes Wide Shut music is by
 Jocelyn Pook and its called Masked Ball from Flood which is
 quite a good album.  Killing Joke used it way before
 the film!!!!!"
 I don't want to start shit; only to respectfully point
 out that "Masked Ball" by Jocelyn Pook was written
 specifically for the... masked ball scene in "Eyes Wide
 Shut" and was based on a previous piece she had written
 called "Backwards Priests" in 1997. Her album
 "Flood" came out in 1999, the same year as the
 movie. KJ often mix it with the "Blade Runner"
 track by Vangelis.
 As always, I welcome rebuttals from the better informed.

 [kj] Roundhouse Went with my mate Ben, who isn't a
 massive kj fan, but he does like Jah Wobble and we got into
 the venue just before Wobble came on stage. Id never seen
 him live before. Brilliant support act for killing joke,
 very entertaining and the crowd seemed
 I must admit, Ive fallen out of love with killing
 joke in recent years. Cant say that the last few albums have
 really done much for me, apart from the odd couple of songs
 here and there. My initial reaction to the new album was
 much the same. However, ive been listening to it a lot while
 driving about for work and its really grown on me. Some of
 the tracks which I initially rejected have now become firm
 favourites. Into the Unknown for one. Live, this was the
 highlight of my night. Disappointed they didn't play
 Delete, which is definitely the best on the album in my
 opinion. Exorcism was fantastic, also Fall of  Because
 and Madness, but I don't think anyone would be too
 disappointed if they dropped Asteroid from the set
 We were standing just inside the ring of pillars
 and the sound there wasn't too bad actually. Big
 Paul sounded immense, vocals were clear, Geordie could have
 been a little higher in the mix but you could still hear
 what he was doing, Youth was just a rumble though. Not the
 best sound but Ive heard them sounding a lot
 Bumped into Antoni outside for a brief chat then
 headed back to Bens place just off Holloway Road, where we
 proceeded to get right royally shit-faced and I finally
 crashed out on the floor about 4 o'clock. Got up the
 next day to find not one, but TWO parking tickets on my car!
 130 fucking quid! 
 Oh well, we still had a great

 I was
 seated upstairs - front seat, great view, but still slightly
 sad not to be getting sweaty and battered down the
 track I was most looking forward to, based on recent
 setlists, was Delete, so it was a bit galling that they
 dropped it... on the other hand, several less-recent numbers
 were absolute stormers, so overall no complaints! 
 Particularly good ones for me were:
 Fall of
 Because (the first KJ track that really grabbed me, all
 those years ago)EightiesBeautiful
 am the VirusChangePssyche
 Contrary to
 expectations, I rather enjoyed Wardance and
 Pandemonium.  The former certainly got a large section
 of the crowd going.
 sound was a bit disappointing.  Too loud, I thought,
 and Geordie's guitar didn't really come through in
 all its glory.  Especially disappointing for LLB, which
 lives and dies on the guitar.
 thing was probably having such a great view of the whole
 band, all the way back to Big Paul.  He was absolutely
 pounding those drums... fearsome energy all the way
