Dec 1990 - Mar 1991 - Smart Studios (Gish recordings)

  (Billy Corgan, Butch Vig)


Tracks Recorded



Gish was recorded to analog 16-track. To cut costs, each instrument was recorded separately - drums, bass, then guitars, etc. It is my guess that Why Am I So Tired is a Gish outtake/jam, based on the stereophonic division and the general feel of the song. Jesus Loves His Babies was a Gish outtake, and almost a B-side. A version of Smiley may have been recorded during this session. Purr Snickety might have been recorded at this time, rather than during the Siamese sessions.
