The Infinite Sadness tour Silverfucks rule. Other than that I'd say I enjoyed Mayonaise and XYU the most when played live.

Fuck I love that show.

BTW, DISARM from that show is my all-time favorite version out of all the various mutations that song went though.

on a side note, my disarm rankings are:
Vancouver 97
studio
earphoria

I think I'm the only person who doesn't like the MICS tour Silverfucks. They were a little too wanking off for my taste. When they kicked in those parts were great, but 15 minutes of ebow work and Billy ranting ain't my bag.

Blue Skies Bring Tears from any Arising! show. I would do just about anything for a soundboard Arising! show.

All the Pumpkins shows I attended were amazing in their own way, but here they are in order of which i rate them :

1) 1996/05/08 Manchester NYNEX (Absolutely the bolx. Wish I could remember the setlist).

2) 1996/05/14 Wembley Arena

3) 1995/08/25 Reading festival (Great pre-mellon collie show)

4) 2000/11/03 Wembley Arena

5) 1998/05/23 Shepherds Bush Empire (Great show, small venue with tickets very hard to get)

word.

the shorter, more concise MCIS Silverfuck's ruled. Like, the 15, 17 minutes ones. The 40 min ones ala Feb 97 were a little whacky, but the shorter ones were stronger and more musically centered.

The only Pumpkins show I ever made it to was December 3, 1996 at the Summit in Houston, TX.

I moved around too much after that and kept missing them.

thats gotta be one of my favourite boots. The silverfuck at the end is just amazing, and its got one of my favourite performances of Siva, as well as the best performance of By Starlight.

I wish i'd brought that boot to work with me today...
