Last night I had a friend over, and we played the original BBC Transcription discs with the 1993 and 1995 Smashing Pumpkins concerts. Man, did we have headbanging fun! 8)

But I came to realize that the 1993 disc is being introduced by DJ Mark Goodier, the guy that received that unique Cherub Rock promo CD ( http://www.spfreaks.com/?page=COLLDETAILS&item=3241 )!

\"Hello, this is Mark Goodier, welcome to In Concert. Today we have a quite stunning American band who’ve really made an impact over the last few months: The Smashing Pumpkins. This Chicago based band is lead by the extremely talented Billy Corgan, who writes the songs, sings and plays guitar. Journalists and musicfans alike have become hooked on the strength of the group’s songs on their album called Siamese Dream. And as you’ll hear, the live performance lives up to the promise of their recorded material. We recorded them in Manchester as part of their recent UK tour. So stand by for some serious live music, this is Smashing Pumpkins.\"

Billy Corgan, December 2, 2008 : "Not everyone understands our death trip. But you do. And that's what matters."
