According to Musewiki they played at least twice before Origin of Symmetry was released.

First live performance of Shrinking Universe: Big Cat, Osaka, Japan 2000.10.12

 

Anyone has a recording or something because I'm so curious how this song sounds live!

^^ Excellent work.

 

With the early B-sides it tends to be they're played very early around album release and then you don't hear them live again. Which is a shame. Although, they pop up now and again.

 

With a lot of showbiz B-sides you'll find they played them live in the showbiz-era (pre-2000) due to not much content for gigs.

As far as I know, these songs from Hullabaloo have been played at least once:

 

- Forced In

- Shrinking Universe

- Recess

- Yes Please

- Nature_1

- Ashamed

 

Indeed, Forced In became a regular part of the set on the main BHAR tour.

Before the gig in San Francisco they had the familiar skull graphic of Forced In spinning on the screens, we could see it in a tiny gap through the doors...

 

because they played Forced In before Bliss at reading i thought it meant we were gonna get bliss....

 

but we got neither :(:LOL:

From the Hulla b-sides, probably only The Gallery and Shine Acoustic have never been played. MOYH and HCM have been played as riffs at the very least (up until last year even). I have a version of Ashamed at Astoria 2000 which is quite fun lol. I'm pretty sure I got it from muselive..and it's also been played often as an outro riff. I've only heard/got one version of Recess live which was a Radio 1 'alternative' verison, the same set as Muscle Museum 'different take'. :happy: I hadn't tried searching for Shrinking Universe so thanks for the linkage above! :D
