A Real Dead One - NOTB

Hi guys,

Just listened to this album for the first time in about 20 years - I have to admit its not as bad as I remember it! Though one question which puzzled me at the time and I still havent seen an answer to - at the beginning of NOTB, during the spoken word intro, there seems to be another voice talking in the background? Does anyone have an idea what this is? Did they use a different intro tape or is it just Bruce/Nicko messing about in the background?



I'll shoot the gunner first!
I think it's Bruce talking really low. If I'm not mistaken, he seems to say "what it's it please" before the intro says "its number is six hundred and sixty six".


Years Wasted
Is Bruce speaking through he's mic... Here what's going on:

"Woe to you, oh Earth and Sea,
for the Devil sends the Beast with wrath, because he knows the time is short… -
Bruce: Oh
Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the Beast
Bruce: Oh God - What is it Dave?
for it is a human number, its number is six hundred and sixty six
" – Bruce: That's easy for you to say
