Additional Information

We think it is fair to believe that this “first demo cassette” that Joe Shanahan, owner of the Chicago based venue Metro, received, is dated around September 1988. Smashing Pumpkins had just played in The Avalon the previous month (last 3 songs on the tape) and the same month too, and had just recorded the first 2 songs presented on this tape. Based on this demo tape Joe invited Smashing Pumpkins to do the 1988/10/05 gig, the very first of a long row of gigs in the years after in Metro. Note that Metro was named Cabaret Metro in these days…

These 2 pics are taken in June 2012, while Joe is showing the tape to 1 of our SPfreaks.com moderators.

I’ve been here before

And I don’t know where I go

Reaching for this door

And something tells me I’m alone without you

Heading for the floor

Turning back unless I’m sure

Heading for the floor

And something tells me I’m alone without you

You take

My eternity alone, alone

I’ve been here before

And I don’t know where I go

Reaching for this door

And something tells me I’m alone without you

Heading back, down before

I don’t know where I go

Reaching for this door

And something tells me I’m alone without you

To believe

And I beg

To see

And I beg

(?)

My eternity alone, alone

My eternity, alone

And I fail, …

My eternity alone, alone

And I fail, …

My eternity alone, alone

My eternity, alone, alone

There it goes
Playing with my heart again
I don’t know when
I’m gonna come up for air
For you now, again
For you now
For you now
And the way you look at me
Makes me happy inside
Knowing all the while
I can’t hide
Come and go
Wasting my years
I was born to fear
That there’s something in the air
For you now, again
For you now
For you now
And the way you look at me
Makes me happy inside
Knowing all the while
I can’t hide
When you’ve thought to come back
Would you take me home?
When you’ve thought come back
All alone
All alone
There it goes
Playing with my heart again
I don’t know when
I’m gonna come up for air
For you now, again
For you now
For you now
And the way look at me
Makes me happy inside
Knowing all the while I can’t hide
When you’ve thought to come back
Could you take me home?
When you’ve thought to come back
All alone
All alone

It's all I wanted

It's all I could see

You can watch me bleed

Settle your belief inside of me

Take what you have inside

This is not your love I wish to break

And there's something to guide you

Daylight comes and washes over me, me

Feeling in your arms

Was more than I could see

It's all I wanted

It's all I could see

You can watch me bleed

Settle your belief inside of me, me

Feeling in your arms

Was more than I could see, dear

Feeling in your arms

Was more than I could see

One and two is three

Armed to the teeth
With everyone you meet
They are taxes at the door(?)
Are we
Settled on the beat
They are honored on the floor
On and on
On and on and on and on and on and on and on
Settled on the sheets
With everyone you meet
They are on honored on the floor
Are we
Settled on the beat
They are honored on the floor
On and on
On and on and on and on and on and on and on
Armed to the teeth
With everyone you meet
They are taxes at your door (?)
Are we
Settled on the beat
They are honoured on the floor
It’s my party
It’s my party and I’ll go if I want
On and on
On and on and on and on and on and on and on
