hope all my fellow americans had a most excellent memorial day weekend. all you non americans i guess i hope you had a good weekend too. mine was interesting/good to say the least. imagine camping with a 2.5 year old and you will get the idea. or if you dont have children, imagine camping with a puppy that you cant keep on a leash. sounds like fun, right? sometimes he was great other times yeah not so much. we had fun though. i did get to push the limits of cleanliness, i didnt take a shower for 3 days. parts of me that i didnt know were possible to smell, of course stank pretty rank.
i will not deny that during the years of 1991 – 1994, smashing pumpkins were probably my favorite group on the planet. by the time melon collie rolled out i had kinda stopped caring, which is really no fault of theirs its just that i had grown out of them. i still listen to gish and siamese dream quite often, although gish is showing signs of definte aging while siamese dreams still sounds pretty fresh. this is all given the fact that both are more than 14 years old.
so it was with mild intrigue that i delved into this pumpkins show from paris. i gotta admit the new songs sound pretty good, this is to say much better than the shit on the last few pumpkins records. definitely going back to basics with more of a guitar based sound – which is definitely a good thing.
1. intro 3. today 7. home 8. hummer 9. starz 10. tarantula 12. gossamer 13. billy talking 15. 33
the remainder of the show will but up later this evening. if you notice that the track count posted here is different than on the mp3 tag its cause i didnt post two fade in/out tracks.
