Essentially a new song with an old riff, with spoken word bits courtesy of my friend. The solo, funnily enough, was quickly thrown down because I had to go to a funeral.
who was the friend

He literally states who was speaking in the liner notes to the TAFH boxset, as well as heavily implying who's funeral it is

Why is this a thread

I believe he was going to Kurt Cobain's funeral if I'm not mistaken.

TAFH was first tracked
March 1996 - Charing Cross Studios, Australia (BC/Martin)

and then finished in
June 1996 - Soundworks, Chicago (Billy Corgan/Jeff Moleski)

so the solo was probably done in chicago
melvoin died in July. (and they didn't go to his funeral either)
who's funeral was it in June? his grandmother?


I always assumed the "spoken word bits courtesy of my friend" was that his friend recorded him on a dictaphone and gave billy the tape afterwards... a typical "hey dude bro!. you probably don't remember cause you were sooo high, but after we dropped acid I recorded some of the crazy stuff you were saying. Here's the tape"

my theory has been that he had to go sign divorce papers.
that 'funeral' was tongue in cheek...

maybe someone from chicago can go look at the city hall records for these things?
(is that public?)
