This is awesome. so far the best of the preview tracks Ive heard. any idea who played banjo on this? Was this the much hyped, but never released, Steve Martin ReImagined 2014 version?

There were rumors that Corgan was not completely satisfied with Martin's banjo playing. Corgan later replaced all of Martin's banjo parts with his own.

Who knew Billy Corgan invented Sufjan Stevens?

I'd have to check the liner notes of Adore again, but didn't it credit the instrumentation to the To Sheila bridge to The Frogs?

If so, I'm willing to bet this is just simply an alternate mix of the song that has that bridge's instrumentation by The Frogs all through it. It's very Medellia-esque

how many people sing on "to sheila"? wasn't it a lot?
i can't really remember, but there's at least one other guy singing along. it isn't all belly.

I heard some james. Honestly, i hate how the background vocals often had his own bacground vocals to mask james and d'arcy. I liked when you could hear all three distinctively.

There is a low toned man at the beginning that sounded like james to me. Maybe it is the other person you are talking about

Could be James. But it could also be Dennis or Jimmy Frog.
