yeah not really
disarm & mayo (among others) while drunk or something can be a pretty humbling experience though

or, y'know "spiritually open" in some regard or another

Is that a song title?

toase

I think that's the reason I'm still here
Considering that I'm only here when I'm high/drunk

LaBelle

When I'm drunk, I'm usually among friends.
So we tend to go for songs that are fun to scream/sing obnoxiously, karaoke style.

The pumpkins aren't really good for that.

I must say I never really enjoyed live pumpkins because of the vocals, but I do when I am completely drunk like right now

And I must say... It's too much...

I would get a lot of shit back in the days for bitching about live pumpkins.


I think in time i realised i preferred most bands on record anyway though.

i've always wanted a high-quality "Siamese Dream Live" comp to listen to as an alternate to the album, considering how ravenous those performances were 'round that time compared to the relatively dreamy thing they had going on the album

there's earphoria but i'm talkin track-for-track, best performances or at least highest-quality recordings, even if it culled some of the shit from earphoria (wouldn't complain about that Quiet or Today)

The SBD Geek USA at Manchester is so good. Billy's growling out the vocals and Jimmy's being Jimmy

That whole Manchester show could pretty much be used for a majority of the album, plus Silverfuck from 1994-05-23

Machina works really well for me stoned with good headphones. Otherwise it's a bit shit.

Everything else SP 1 is ok but nothing special.

Never bothered with SP2 stuff as I get stoned once in a blue moon and wouldn't want to waste the time sitting around listening to SP.


Drunk... I don't know why you'd want to listen to SP drunk? wtf

hm, there are some songs that work just great when you're tipsy, though. like hyper-active drunk.

I've successfully enjoyed all their best records on hallucinogens. Billy says they don't make records to do drugs to, but yeah right

Holy shit though, I always watch this concert when I'm high. It's CRAZY. Back when they were a band and didn't play songs at ridiculous speeds.

And yeah the interplay between Jimmy and Billy on the good albums is very difficult to beat for a stoned experience.

Interesting question. I think the best thing is gonna be what you know and like the best. Because then you're gonna have the thrill of discovering new layers and sounds in your fave stuff.

Granted that's assuming we're talkin THC. Can't say alcohol ever enhanced music for me that much...

When you get high go listen to Azax Syndrom high volume better. Have a good trip Sir.

i did some research last night and enjoyed the cherub rock 12" at max volume. the title track and pissant are both solid speaker shredders with lots of phased elements.

I had an amazing experience with "Luna" on repeat while on LSD in junior high. Cried tears of joy over it for a solid two hours with my best friend. Then we watched Bananas In Pajamas.

I swear the drum part right after the first "I just want to get there faster" in Siva is some crazy shit. The crack and pan in the speakers is something else. Think it happens again in the "I don't live, I inhale" outro. No drugs required, just something that tickles that part of me that feels something weird was done with it.

Pumpkins are fun drunk or stoned. Lots to absorb and feel and rock to.

there are tons of weird phasing tricks that i'm still discovering on the first two albums. even the live peel session of siva has those effects. i'm starting to believe those mutron bi-phase stories more and more.

$500 is not too wild of a price point if you really wanted one. if i were more serious about studio work i would grab one in a heartbeat.

If I get high pretty much the only thing I'll want to listen to is Siamese Dream or Loveless. If I listen to anything else I'll just want to go back to one of those.

Pisces Iscariot was one of my go to stoner albums back in the day

Plume is especially awesome, something about those fuzzed out guitars, and those frikken guitar solos are off the hook!

You mean for an original biphase or the new clone? I like the idea of vintage gear but all the old gear I've bought just breaks. I have an original Fender Blender that works maybe 33% of the time.

The clone. It costs 500

yeah pisces is the stoner album. plume, blew away, whir, and obscured are all dreamy and spacey. and starla is a psychedelic voyage.

Definitely more audible in this. Billy's vocals (and neck bells) and play-along are slightly audible too with the assistance of headphones.

Yes, great day drinking music. Also great for tripping on hallucinogens (the newer stuff not so much).
