Yeah lol, it's so weird. Billy always goes on about having this connection with Jimmy but really whenever I see Jimmy around Bill he just wants to GTFO.

Truly a great album, in all seriousness. Rock solid and does not feel 45 minutes at all. Jimmy just said "I survived playing it and I just survived listening to it."

Jimmy: Never thought when we were making this record one day I'd sit there listening to it and people would be WATCHING me listen to it!

Billy: That's the true mark of success!

Billy: The 4 of us, the original 4 of us, did not give a fuck.

Jimmy: As evidenced by early photos!

Final budget for Gish was $30,000.00.

Lol some funny bits about Billy saying why they chose Butch Vig was because of the kick drum, jimmy says yeah but also he was doing heavy stuff, billy was like no it was mainly because of the kick drum!

Then they go on about budget being 20k for gish, but they went over by 10k so 30k in total. Jimmy is adamant that they used their own money for that, billy kept correcting him saying no it was the labels'.

The Billy/Jimmy dynamic is truly fascinating. Billy will ask him a question, Jimmy will answer it, and Billy will either contradict him or say he's wrong and let's move on.

Because of the poor soundproofing, Billy said hearing Jimmy's drums in Smart Studios was louder than any concert they've played. Many drum takes are first takes.

Many lyrics in "Rhinoceros" written after Billy's first L.S.D. trip. Line is "mustard lies".

The first trip was with a girl he was cheating with when he dated Chris. He felt guilty, drove over to Chris's house (high), and had to explain where he got L.S.D. When he was on the trip, he had a "revelation" he wrote down; the next day it was "mustard lies" written on the page. "I had to put it in the song because it's so fucking bad." Later, they actually met the man who translated the lyric sheet to Japanese on the Japanese releases. He translated it to reference "mayonnaise" instead of mustard, and that's where Billy got the song title from for the Siamese Dream song.

Jimmy's favorite song on Gish: "I don't really have a favorite song. I like 'Bury Me' a lot." Said "Snail" was the "stepping stone" to where they went next.

Their chemistry is so awful!!! Jimmy just blurted out the name of some record store owner that Billy was gonna tell some story about, now he abandoned that.

Billy asked Jimmy if he knows if "drugs are legal" here. You could tell both of them realized what a poor question that was to ask Jimmy.
