I thought I was buying the whole Siamese Dream album on 7″ but that would have been too much, wouldn’t it? Still, precious item in my collection, even though these songs will never have the same impact on me that Gish and Lull had. I was blown away by those records. After Siamese Dream I sort of stopped listening, the Melon Collie album was a bit too much for me, though I do like it in hindsight. Maybe I was just being a petty prick because the lady I was seeing at the time just wouldn’t stop going on about them – it got pretty annoying at one point. But hey, that’s what being a fan is all about, right? Being annoying.

Here’s a video of Smashing Pumpkins on the Muppet Show. Glorious.
