This might be the only recorded instance of all four pumpkins being in a good mood at the same time.

yeah this is a great show, I was actually listening to 7/2/96 last night when they played the arena in Buffalo. Billy mentions how great this show was and how supportive Buffalo had been, and they even bring up the controversy that occurred surrounding this show, where some student organization petitioned for the Pumpkins not to play because they weren't "ethnic enough." at the '96 show they riff on this for a while, D'arcy: "Yeah, James. You weren't Japanese enough for them."

Cool story from the LMA reviews

Quote:

I was there. First year in college. Here's what i remember about this show.

I worked crew via being friends with some ppl at the Student Union Board. I was a huge pumpkins fan, so I begged to work the show.

Staging was a nightmare. Couldn't fly anything. We had to stand on top of wobbly road cases with casters placed at the end of the stage and 10 crew members holding them in place to put up the P.A. stacks. Nervewracking.

I made friends with Billy's tech, and was able to hold the ruby/star strat while he did a quick paint job. I still have the set of Ernie Ball strings he took off of it.

Billy did a 1 hour soundcheck by himself, then a half hour just him and Jimmy, and then another half hour with the whole band, where they went through Hello Kitty Kat a couple times. I figured I'd hear some of Billy's arpeggiated improv from soundcheck on the Mellon Collie album when it came out, but no, i never heard it again. But it was definitely not just jamming, he was working something out.

Billy and Jimmy kept blasting the Batman movie soundtrack through the P.A. and playing conductor when the symphony came on.

Darcy was bitchy, only contact i had with her was when she was looking for a bathroom.

James was cool.

After the show i mentioned to the crew "Do they play this many encores every night?" and the guy was like "No, this was definitely not a normal night for them. They were having a lot of fun playing tonight."

A week or two before the show, the student union board recieved numerous bomb and death threats from angry students who were unhappy they put their money into a "white" band, and not a more culturally significant act. Make of that what you will. Billy made reference to this incident during the show, to the cheers of the audience.

A Chicago band "Red Red Meat" opened the show.

Aww you wish you could’ve gone to college

Listening to this for the first time, holy shit

I'm past the part where Billy accuses the student body of reverse racism, and the part where he stops I Am One to determine if anyone has heard the song before

Now I'm on Mayonaise and I can't fucking believe the concert is only like half over

If you're hoarding the soundboard of this, what on earth are you looking to get in trade for it at this point

Ram27 06-19-2018 07:05 PM

New music that doesn't suck?

either that or they're totally removed from giving a shit about the band

Ram27 06-19-2018 07:06 PM
