I'm not interested in the 2000 pages book from Billy if he ever finishes it, but I'd read a Monte memoir...

I wouldn't read any memoir from any of the core band members, they would all be long form versions of all their uninteresting interviews. On the other hand, I would be interested in reading accounts from Nicole and Mike, but of course they surely signed NDA's. I bet they were in it long enough to see all the sides, and yet removed enough to offer an outsider-looking-in perspective.

I have the Zwan Lyric promo.

He’ll be paying someone on ebay to take it off him. Totally worthless.

Mike and his boys in Bearcubbin' were on tour in the San Fran area so Monte hosted them at his house and his wife cooked for em and the whole 9 yards. Surely lots of comedic gold happened there, but I don't believe we ever got much details beyond that.

Yeah, they must've signed an NDA... I always thought that if some publication gave em a few thousand that it would be easy to get em to spill the beans. I was hoping it'd happen, but they've been more tight-lipped than I could've ever imagined.

They had a Lyric import C.D. single at an A&B sound that was closing nearly 10 years ago in my town and they wanted 20 dollars for it... That's with the closing sale. I thought it was absurd.

What is the whole story behind Monte getting involved with Billy and eventually discarded by him?

I remember strongly disliking monte, not because his fandom was so over the top, but because he was such a smug dweeb. and the "LDS" didn't help matters

Something seems to have soured the relationship in a big way... I always just assumed that it was simply a case of Billy losing patience with him.
IIRC, there were leaks both from an archive employee AND Lucky 13...

...as in, Billy gave Lucky 13 some tracks to help discern a possible future archive release with fans. I vaguely remember Monte lording this privilege over people before the tracks got out.

I might be wrong, though. Weren't there some people from Netpho who were in Lucky 13? WHAT'S THE GOSS?

Monte got “in” with Billy, the apex being the Oceania cruise, and now has been exiled because Billy probably ran out of patience

Someone needs to type up a blow-by-blow account of Monte's antics and escapades. This is legendary stuff of seismic lore status shit, if you know what I mean.

see that's just too much work, too much wading about through the muck. this is why we need an authoritative, comprehensive monte memoir.

And learned that yes, you can use "whose" for inanimate objects. Thank you, Monte.

Still, a song consists of a melody, so how could a song "sound like a calm melody"

the thread where he was confronted about stealing that bootleg is one of the funniest archival things i've ever been linked to over here. Seriously some late-night Looney Tune shit

So many amazing moments in there.

"As the shot moved away from the band to seeing Homer Simpson walking away from the stage, I said, either out loud or in my head, “Go back! Go back! I want to see them!”"

"I must have jumped 2 feet in the air with excitement by the arrival of this gift. I opened up the Mellon Collie cassette and looked at all the art, amazed with the kitty cats that were being married and the bunnies playing baseball. Then I saw the band’s picture for the first time: Billy Corgan standing there with his dark hair combed back, D’arcy holding a carrot as if it had some magical power, Jimmy looking like he was about to fall over, and James, well, looking like James."

"he was so gentle and friendly and signed my superman and wrote a large “A” on the top of his head. Next would be James, I handed him the Alf doll he looked at it confessed and said ‘you want me to sign this?” I told him, that it was for him he gave me an awkward thanks and went to sign the Superman. Jimmy gave me an enthusiastic hello, as I gave him the cat in the hat, hat he put it right on. It was the most uplifting thing after the little bit of awkwardness with James"

“We went up to the lady employee with my mother and my $25 cash ready to buy my first Smashing Pumpkins concert ticket. It was that day that I first learned of what I later referred to as the evil surcharge..”

“I found out that a touring keyboardist, whom I had never heard of, had died of a drug overdose. My parents started to question whether I should ever see such a band. It wasn’t until a few days later that I learned about the firing of Jimmy Chamberlin and this put my parents at ease.”


“Also the singer was hecka fine. She was wearing a 2 piece dress and had short red hair.”

“It was 1997 and I was choosing my AOL ‘screen name’ It was between MonteLDS or MonteSP at the time. I had thought to myself, well I might not always be a Smashing Pumpkin fan but I will always be LDS. Little did I know that I would also always be a Smashing Pumpkin fan.”

“‘alt.music.smash-pumpkins’ It was full of fans who were talking about the band and giving away copies of bootlegs on tapes. I found a lot of interesting topics and I learned just how rude online Smashing Pumpkins fans were.”

“I never had heard songs played live by the band before a studio release, so I was unable to process the songs.”

“I however had grown such love for being in line from the week before I chose to stay in line.”

“These good people who I met in line were so kind that they did something really touching. Even as I type this it chocks me up a bit. The fans who went had gotten back in line a 2nd time for my behalf to get the band to sign a poster for me. They told Billy how I was such a big fan that I wouldn’t even leave the line. *There kindness and care will always remain with me.”

“and then we heard for the first time, the song Waiting. We were all stun by its beauty. For myself I was in gulfed by the song.”

“The Smashing Pumpkins would later return to Berkley on May 24th the day after the Billy announced on KROQ that the band was calling it quit. *I started to feel lost and the Machina mystery wasn’t helping as it was hard to understand at the time.”
