'Traverse the Box' Tuesday returns! Smashing Pumpkins Discography WIP
Posted January 21, 2018 - 10:35 PM
I'm relieved that this is finished:
"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.

This is a hidden gem from SP's most underrated album.
Also I wanted to say that starting now, I will be completing The Aeroplane Flies High. All of my next releases will be finishing that. I'm currently juggling this project with a few others, but I am making great progress.
Also anyone follow the news? The Smashing Pumpkins camp is a complete mess. James and Jimmy joined Billy in studio recently, but D'arcy has released a shitstorm on the reunion, saying she was left out. Today she released a handful of text messages between herself and BIlly. Crazy stuff. Plus there will be an announcement in a day and 20 hours. Probably the reunion tour, but maybe some new music as well. We'll see!

The Aeroplane Flies High is a boxset released in 1996 that contains 5 CDs featuring 28 additional songs
recorded during the Mellon Collie period that were not featured on the album. Each CD is an expansion of
one of the 5 singles that were released from the Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness album.
Let's get this started again. With the previous release of Pastichio Medley, we are 3 Discs down; 2 to go! On to the Tonight, Tonight single disc...
Starting first of course with Tonight, Tonight, done by my fellow collaborator Septekka.
Second track on the Tonight, Tonight disc, an acoustic number with a great guitar part. This is a fun one on guitar, similar to the likes of Landslide or Stumbleine.
Catch up on the journey so far...
