Did they do that new middle section they did at DotR?

Dunno, I was too busy enjoying myself to notice. But in compensation, here is a photo taken during the middle section of TDL:

Sorry for the poor quality, I think I was asking a bit much of the camera in my phone  :(

If you were a super intelligent, galaxy crossing being what would possibly make you want to speak to the government??

No, it was a new middle section with Blunders on drums and Jem playing a piano part following the melody of the backwards vocals.  Worked pretty well although I think playing a sample of the actual backwards section would equally be acceptable, in the same way Queen played a tape of the multi-tracked vocal section of Bo Rap, making it obvious that they weren't miming along to it.  It can't be done live and people accept that.
Come on, you\'re a lion!

Honestly this was one of the most terrifying things I've seen played live. you listen to the track and simply think there's NO WAY that can be done live, and not only that, done justice to.

But bugger me backwards with a rich tea biscuit was it not simply phenomenal. How the hell that much sound came from 4 seemingly 'normal' people is incredible. And seriously, the riff that kicks in where on the track the woman is talking was HUUUUUGE and one of my favourite parts of the gig. Not only is it a massive riff, but very clearly quite tricky to play on, well, all of the instruments (yeah, like the rest of it was a walk in the park!) Those who didn't get to see it, buy the DVD, for this song alone you won't be disappointed!!

Again, I take my hat of to you, Men of Frost*
