"Killer Joe" is not really a song. It’s hard to say exactly what it is. At the beginning of the second set on 3/17/90 in Ardmore, PA, the band briefly improvises a jam while Fishman mutters the words “Killer Joe” over and over again.

Dementia? Performance art? Too much alcohol in honor of St. Patrick’s Day? Who knows?
