Yep, I already have the Jeff & Butch Gearslutz interview in the Triclops Studios sessions. Thanks though. It's a cool read, although I reorganized a bit of it, grouping related answers together.
I already used the Signal to Noise article; it's split up into each album's proper recording session.
As for Soothe, I didn't directly specify Corgan was talking about Soothe, since I thought it was fairly obvious he was talking about Soothe and not F&B.
I would definitely recommend compiling your own chronology of the SP gear. That would definitely be it's own thing, as live gear used on touring really wasn't information I was looking to gather for my Recording Sessions, you know? It's a great idea though.
I am looking for the April 2000 Guitar World though, where they talk about recording Machina. That's the only specific relevant article that I remember reading long ago that I could not locate. I could only find an excerpt from it, but I specifilty remember the full article going in depth about how Flood would route the guitar signals, digitally process them, and route it back to ProTools mixed in with the "dry" mic'd guitar signal, which explains why the guitars sound so fucked on Machina.
I used to have that magazine. I might still, somewhere in my basement.
Here's a copy of it for $1.00: https://www.burns-particular.top/gui...ed-p-1490.html
The interview is allegedly available for download from here, though it requires a free sign-up to view:
That page is where the addresses http://cybavam.info/etitovi.pdf
Is this the full interview?: http://www.oocities.org/mccinca/smoke.htm
I see Flood mentioned in it, but maybe not the part you're looking for.
It must not be the full thing, because here's a Netphoria page with article excerpts (probably the one you mentioned finding), and I'm not finding the quotes on that page in the interview at the oocities page: http://forums.netphoria.org/showthread.php?t=58821
As a side note, I see that all the SPFC YouTube-hosted video interviews are removed, unfortunately: http://www.spfc.org/news-press/inter...html?year=2000
There's an interesting Billy quote about the MCIS songs at the start of this article: https://www.guitarworld.com/features...-great-pumpkin
"“I think Mellon Collie illustrates a complete passion for music and for the guitar,” says former Smashing Pumpkins’ leader Billy Corgan, reflecting on the group’s most successful album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. “Almost every track was written on a $60 guitar while sitting on my couch in my living room, watching TV.
