Default If someone met a netphorian...

If someone met a netphorian in the street and asked them who their favourite band was, the netphorian would reply 'The Smashing Pumpkins', yet:

- they couldn't tell'em who was actually in the band.
- they couldn't tell'em what the band's most recent material sounded like.
- they couldn't tell'em who is producing the band's latest album.
- they couldn't tell'em the name of even one of the band's most recently recorded songs.

Currently, netphorians are truly useless fans!

Billy and jimmy are in the band.
They don't have any recent material.
Billy is producing the album.
Same as 2.

Now shut the fuck up.

Unless you're in the studio with the band while they're recording, how would you know what the last song to have been recorded was, be it from the Pumpkins or other? You kind of don't know those things until after the album's been released, if ever.

You kind of don't know those things until after the album's been released, if ever. SPFC has the most detailed history of the band's recording timelines, and even they are shady about some things.

if you asked a random person on the street those questions about their favorite band, they probably couldn't answer any of them either. also, they'd probably make haste in the opposite direction or perhaps in whichever direction the nearest police station happened to be. you fuck.

Past tense, so clearly the answer is: Billy, Jimmy, James, D'arcy, Melissa. Ron, if you're a fucktard.

good thinking, brendo_91. for the second question you could just describe Gish since it was their most recent material at one point in history.

we're halfway to useful already.

Let's tackle a couple more o' these.

Roy Thomas Fucking Baker!

The band's most recent material will have passed through much expensive vintage equipment as well as state of the art analog and digital equipment. There will be up to 100, 200 overdubs of guitars per song, each tracked to analog tape before being bounced into ProTools or Nuendo, the working environments preferred by RTB when in the digital world. The tracks will benefit from the audio enhancing effects of tape saturation, as this is a signature part of Roy's production style.



Wow guys, we're now 3/4 useful.
