I myself was wearing a SMASHING PUMPKINS Crew T-shirt...

The "SchwuZ" is in a former brewery in East-Berlin. The front still looks like a bald suppliers reception area.

BILLY arrived a few hours before the concert in a black Mercedes limousine with even black colored windows, driven by a chauffeur. Someone from the TV-crew told us to stay away from the car.

WPC was wearing his Madame ZuZu's cap and padded golden sneakers.
Thankfully this wasn't part of his wardrobe for the show...

When he went out from the backseat of the car someone tried to photograph himself with him in the back. BILLY asked him cheerful: "Are you doing a selfie?" People who then wanted BILLY to sign some record sleeves he ignored but went straight to the doorway.

I had a dream last night that billy had 4 tiny feet. two attached to each leg - each leg split below the knees leading to 4 feet. he had 20 tiny toe nails painted like children feet. I reached for my phone to take a picture but he effeminately streaked "don't invade my privacy".
I won some magnets.. but insisted I'd use the clock box they came in as a DMC style necklace instead.

he was also dancing by himself under a spotlight in a gazebo on a hill...
I was following a potential murderer in a stolen ice cream truck to get to the top of the hill.


anyone else have the same dream?

No way in hell. We're past that.

-Take Your Dick Out Of My Ass And Put It In My Mouth Anniversary Tour
-"Fuck you Jimmy, go ride around In a white van for the rest of your life"
-Singing an awful track while a bunch of professional wrestlers stand around awkwardly
-Appearing with the Mormon tabernacle choir
-Alex Jones appearances
-"NOBODY BELIEVES I WROTE A THREE STAR RECORD! NOBODY!"

-We're in an age where he's made peace with the old band, recognizes the SP name isn't worth doing anything sans the old group, and is content to sing some halfway decent new stuff that doesn't try to appeal to kids. It ain't no fucking golden age but I'll take it.

Man... I hate to say it, but I really have no interest in hearing Billy if he's just gonna be sitting behind a piano or playing guitar by himself. Even if the melodies are unique, he's just not a good enough player or singer to carry the tunes anymore.

At this point if he isn't ripping on an electric guitar in front of Chamberlin, I couldn't care less.

Aeronaut and the Spaniards... Fuck that shit...

i agree with all that.

but now the music has been completely and fully drained of anything redeemable.

i could convince myself that some parts of some songs on monuments were pretty rocking and high quality.

i also thought the in plain song tour had promise.

but there's no hope for the music anymore. pure garbage. can't hate these olgiga tracks enough.

This is pretty much my thoughts exactly. He's not interesting enough with his piano style. It's almost cringe worthy to see him sort of pick at the keys. His voice is too mercurial for a simple solo acoustic song. He used to have so much charm in his voice with all of those little quarks but they seem to be replaced with dropped consonants and vocal warble.

I really don't mind his piano but totally agree about the voice. Those songs would be much better if he'd do the growl/dreamy dynamic thing

I wonder why MONTE is still doing this "unregistered" shit...
Seems like he would really like to revive his CHRISTFALLEN website with exclusive links to his YouTube clips.
