Author Notes

"Pastichio Medley" is a medley of riffs from a variety of sources recorded after Siamese Dream and before the completion of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. 
"This is our growingly infamous riff collection of practically, but not almost, every idea that was attempted for Mellon Collie that didn't even make B-side status. I sorted through hundreds of hours of rehearsal and album tapes, and kind of randomly ran small bits all together to create a pastiche of madness." (BC, Guitar World, Jan 1997) 
73 tracks all randomly thrown together into one 18 minute behemoth. This medley can be tricky to play at times; songs will randomly cut out mid-riff and new songs will randomly begin mid-riff. It's the culmination of perhaps 100 hours of work. If you have any issues with a part of the medley, please let me know!
Also this currently just has Auto CAT reductions. I have listened to the full medley a sickening amount of times. If you are interested in having manual reductions, let me know.
