So my friend is interviewing Garbage on Saturday and she says she will ask Butch Vig a couple of Pumpkins related questions if I give her some good ones. So I figured you guys would come up with some good stuff. So post anything you would like to ask here and if anyone gets any good ones I'll send them to her.... for anyone who doesn't know Butch Vig was the producer on early Pumpkins material.

Please note the interview takes place on Saturday so post quickly!

LOL. That'll be the last question of the interview then http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/wink.gif I do agree though.

Ask him if he can remember the recording of "Chump", and what happened.
[It's a demo version of Slunk with Jimmy on vocals]

And how did Bullet With Butterfly Wings sounded like during the SD recording ?
(i know they played it a couple of time during the SD tour, but i'm sure it didn t sound like that a few months before).
B.Vigh producing BWBW, that's interesting, even unfinished.


Those are tricky questions, he may not be able to answer, but i find them pretty cool.
I'd like to know about those sessions.

I'll send some of these questions to my friend although I'm not sure she'll be willing to ask the more obscure ones as she doesn't really like the Pumpkins all that much and shes only asking these questions as a favour to me... she went to the 11/03/00 gig with me and didn't think it was that good. It would be nice to know answers though http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/smile.gif

So yeah keep the questions coming!

Vig produced Nevermind and Gish basically back to back. Ask him if he learned something from Billy or Kurt and then brought that little bit of studio/technique/knowledge to the other one's album.

Ask him if having produced Nirvana and Pumpkins has affected the way Garbage writes and produces. Also whom he would be interested in producing now? What interests does he have in Zwan?

See, but... on some live performances of Slunk, they introduce it as "Chump"... even though Billy was on vocals. So "Chump" is just an alternate title for Slunk... it doesn't necessarily mean Jimmy is on vocals (although for the version you're talking about, it was labeled "Chump" and had Jimmy).

I'd ask him if he remembers anything about Billy's side project, Starchildren. Like, if he went to any Starchildren shows or did any Starchildren stuff in the studio. There was supposedly a Starchildren show in 1991 and one in 1992, right?

Butch Vig to produce Zwan? That would make me interested in Zwan, because I currently don't care... http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/tongue.gif

Update -

Well my friend did the interview and I sent her the questions and stuff. But annoyingly Butch Vig was apprentely absent from the interview for some unknown reason. I'm annoyed too. And Gooch, um if I was doing the interview I might of considered it but my friend did it and she was doing me a favour by agreeing to ask some questions in the first place.... nothing personal.\

Anyway, yeah, sorry guys.

Flood pretty much took amazing songs from the Arising and turned them upside down into the unrecognizable mess that is known as Machina.
Each track in Machina sorta stands on its own, but the album as a whole is...the opposite. It's a piece of fragments that dont fit together.
But anyway, I still blame Flood for ruining a perfectly amazing With Every Light.

uh she really shouldn't ask butch any pumpkins related questions. its kinda disrespectful to the rest of the band. if she's interviewing all of garbage she should ask questions that they all can answer or that relates directly to them. that's the proper journalism approach when interviewing a group.

One or two questions wouldn't hurt. Anyway it's irrelevant now.
