Smashing Pumpkins recording Mellon Collie

Post by berg »

Came across this video earlier today. Half of it is a brief history of the pumpkins leading up to mellon collie, the other half is them making mellon collie interspersed with interviews with the band and live footage. Good little watch :)

Same here! The first time hearing cherub rock when i think i was 11 or 12 and hearing that thick layered fuzz was a revelation

We didn’t know how good we had it in the late 80’s/early 90’s!
