VERY accurate. She sounded great that night.

My first eBay purchase was a 2xCDR of the Trampps show days after it happened. I used my gf's parents account and paid them back. (they were rich and had internet)

Happen to have that baby still? I was way into selling CD-Rs of bootlegs on eBay in those days. Made some super badass custom covers and really put some soul into the bootleg craft at the very least.

Virex >>> Imploding Voice

Something I've probably said on this board 1345 times, but man - also, I think Virex is a far cooler title too.

what makes you think that was the original arrangement of pug? I doubt it, it sounds like a reworked version.

OK, this almost deserved it's own thread - maybe it does - but I think people who are worthy will loop back into this thread to see why it got bumped and will be stoked.

I recently peeked into the SP Reddit - not a bad place overall. Around WPC's birthday, somebody posted a video clip from an Arising show... and even if it was what I initially thought (a different angle of I Am One from Detroit) then it's still huge because it means that there's lots more footage out there as we had all hoped:

Awesome 1999 Arising! clip posted yesterday for BC’s bday from r/SmashingPumpkins



Thennnnn I got to sleuthing on the guy's page who posted it and came across this little teaser on the dude's page:




Is it just me, or is this something that we were wholly unaware of? Because, yeah... if those clips and the prospect of an Arising tour documentary doesn't get your motor going, then... yeah. Turn in your SP card, people.

Attempted to embed both of those and it looks like ol' Netpho pulled it off, but they aren't the prettiest embeds ever. But... yeah.

that is so fucking cool. also, amazing how random people treat footage that's gold to us like it's just...yeah, i'm at work

i read somewhere that they played the same set every night of the tour, and were filming every night, so they could cut together a best of type thing. of course that's all in the vault lost forever

This looks amazing. Great find, Raskolnikov! Not sure it will ever see the light of day, but goddamn if I won't do everything in my power to see it when it does!

The Arising Tour is how they should've done the "reunion" - head out and do some small club gigs. Rather than the big elaborate Shiny show. Would've been a better way to reintroduce D'Arcy into the music world.

plus it's like poetry. last time those 4 played together was arising. now, 20 years later [let's pretend it took d'arcy a year to get back into touring musician shape], they're back

Amen to this one. Can you imagine how much more positive press it would have gotten? So much more buzzy, too.

Have a secret show to kick it off - at the Roxy, where the last one was - have the show sponsored by a big name adult diaper company so that when the crowd starts spontaneously SHITTING THEIR PANTS when they open up with I Am One again there's no damage to the facility's floor/slip hazards... there ya have it.

Why doesn't WPC hire the 15 remaining Netphorians who truly care about his band's legacy to make these kind of decisions for him?!

Well this won't ever see the light of day because it has clips of D'arcy in it and Billy is a petty bitch.
