Default I can't get over how amazing El Sol is

especially the earlier versions. when JC goes to the ride and starts playing little jazzy diddles and corgan assures me that we were meant to be just right. just warm breezy guitar and sunshine.

it's all i wanted....you and me

whoever that is that picks me up on every time I post the opening line of Chrysanthemum, hello, thank you for your service

cued

El Sol is one of the best songs on MSotS for sure.

Didn’t Billy confirm there was no soundboard / higher quality recording of those early Zwan shows?

That’ll be another fuck you, Bill!

Glasshouse beginning to end is one of the best SP/Corgan albums. Zwan is more SP than any of the post-ZG stuff.

Yeah I remember that IG story.

totally agree with every part of this

If you apply his shit about how SP can encompass anything [or whatever it was, you know, to justify mike and nicole in 2011. i slept 3 hours i can't remember shit], then why not have his weird happy christian phase be that? when he still let himself write good guitar songs with other musicians in the room

I'm a self taught drum dummy but the time signatures in Chrysanthemum aren't that weird. The song for the most part is 4/4 with some bars in the pre-chorus 6/4.

Also for fucks sake this song kicks so much ass. Why in the fuck did Billy retire this song after 4 shows and never release a proper studio recording of it? Or better yet, pro-record those early shows because the energy here is great!

I've asked Billy a few times via Twitter and IG about a studio recording of Chrystanthemum and he's confirmed on multiple occasions it exists, hopefully it's not just some poorly recorded acoustic demo.

That’s not zwan.

That’s “HONESTLY,” the hot new single by BILLY CORGAN of SMASHING PUMPKINS FAME’s brand new band called ... wait is this right? Swan? Is this a typo?

Zwan could have been the Wings to the Pumpkins' Beatles. I've said it before and I will die on this hill.

This song shreds so hard!
Tremendous drumming from Jimmy on this one. The fills from 1:27 to 1:32 are some of the most beautiful and complex tasty fills.
Followed by classic Bill ripping it on the solo.
Dope riff.
Dust my broom!
