1988 - Billy's father's home studio


Tracks Recorded

  • [?] (Breathe)
  • The Vigil
  • [?] (Heart / Cross)


An early demo called Nothing Ever Changes. The lineup included: Billy, James, and Ron Roesing (formerly of The Marked) on drums; this could be viewed as the very first recording that ceased to be The Marked and became The Smashing Pumpkins. Heart and Cross were originally two separate songs, but were joined together into one. It Suits Me Well is actually The Vigil.

Although a tape exists as the aforementioned 3-song configuration, The original Nothing Ever Changes was about 60 minutes in length and was Billy's first attempt at a full-length album; it contained a combination of songs, spoken word selections (recalled as "bad poetry"), and instrumentals.
