Is there video floating around somewhere that shows Frank ending a show on the Crush All Boxes tour by "compressing" the sound into a small box then stepping on it? I saw it once years ago and I can not find it now.

It is written about here: http://lukpac.org/~handmade/patio/weirdo/unreleased.html#crushallboxes.

Quote:
<Pogen> there was a stage routine with which he would wind up a show
<pechapai> so the words "CRUSH ALL BOXES" COME from somewhere? tell!
<Pogen> It involved him taking armfuls of sound that he seemed to have dragged from the band, and toss them on the floor
<ResPisces> What, like a conduction thing?
<Pogen> He would then shove 'em together. yes this is conducting the band
<Pogen> He would jump on this invisible pile of sound and compress it
<ResPisces> Hah! Sounds fun.
<Pogen> eventually the sound would get very small and he'd treat it like a box
<pechapai> great!!
<ResPisces> Cool!
<Pogen> shove it in from each side (the band sound squeakier) smaller smaller till he tossed it in the (big swooping sounds) in the air ... crash to the ground and hed jump on it. end of song

I've seen this too. It could be on the Paris 1980 video but I'm not sure because I haven't seen it in a long while.
I can't seem to find my copy of it either. :cry:
