1989 - Reel Time Studios

  (Billy Corgan, Mark Ignoffo)

 

Tracks Recorded

 

Notes

These sessions spawned both the second demo tape Moon, and what is known as the Gish Basement Tape, a promotional cassette used for bookings and label solicitation in 1989 and 1990. A few others were officially released elsewhere: I Am One and Not Worth Asking appeared on the Limited Potential 7"; Bye June was officially released on the Lull EP and was also included on Moon; Daughter (alternate) was released on the Reflex Magazine flexi-disc and Daughter was included on Moon. Two versions of Honeyspider were recorded: a distorted, rocking version was released on the Tristessa 12" and a quieter, clean-toned version was put on Moon, and later on the Pisces Iscariot bonus 7". Just as well, two unreleased versions of Rhinoceros were recorded: an odd version with an organ solo played by Mark Ignoffo was put on Moon, and a version closer to the Gish album version was put on the Gish Basement Tape.

There is apparently a 21-song tape of this session.

The alternate edit of Honeyspider is missing the feedback ending.
The alternate version of Daughter includes an additional minute and a half of feedback.
