Additional Information

This cassette, made by Billy Corgan in January 1991, a few months before the actual release of Gish, is aka “Gish Rough Mix” or “Gish Off The Console” in the Smashing Pumpkins fan community. This tape contains a so-called off the console rough mix of the whole album, i.e. a non-mastered mix of Gish, although the difference in mixing is so slight it’s pretty difficult to point out the differences. Billy Corgan gave this tape to Mike Potential of Limited Potential in January 1991. Note: Billy Corgan started recording on side B, and didn’t mention I’m Going Crazy, though it is on the tape.

On the day this tape was known to the world in October 2000, the buyer told this about it:

“I just received this tape today! Yay! I bought it from Mike Potential.

That writing up on the top left is Jerome Brown from Catherine’s handwriting, and those are the song titles that were originally the demos on this tape. This is the Catherine demo that Billy was supposed to give Mike, but he taped over the entire Catherine part with his “Gish” tracks. Obviously, you can see Billy wrote the tracklisting for Gish.

Mike Potential received this tape about 2 months before Gish was actually released. He estimated around late ’90 or really early ’91. These tracks were taken from an off-the-console mix at Smart Studios. I’ve listened to the tape quickly and it sounds pretty good. Since they are “rough mixes” the drums are quiet, the bass is lower, one guitar is very loud, another guitar is quiet, the vocal is quite loud, and the over all sound doesn’t have much bass in it.

I have noted a few differences. The biggest thing I found so far is the alternate ending for Rhino! The feedback part at the end fades in a out and there is about an extra bar of music. I also noted that I Am One and Snail sound different because of the mixes. I imagine there are a bunch more differences, but I don’t have time to listen to everything all the way through.

[edit, something about that it looks like Sun was scribbled out after Suffer]

It’s a 60 min tape and he put the first 5 tracks on side B and the other 6 (including I’m Going Crazy) on side A.”

All your seven dreams

Are closer than you believe

As your things come undone

See you are the only one

Flower, seize the hour, the day away

Waiting, waiting for your way, away

When you wake up you’re away

Throwing your life away

Someday, sorry coming home

Sorry, snail

What you wait for

Flower, the pain will wash away, away

When the sunshine climbs through your window

Into your bed

When you wake up you’re away

Throwing your life away

Someday, sorry coming home

Sorry, snail

Yeah, live in my home

Flower, seize the hour

Flower, away

What you wait for

Flower, taste the sunshine

Flower, taste the sunshine

Flower

Pledge your faith
I hardly breathe
Struggle to return
Blurry mind
So hypnotized
Fast enough to move
Wonder where you are
Tristessa
Soul takes soul as eye take eye
I will wait for you
What you believe you’ll wish to receive
Won’t believe in who, you
Hang on to your life
Tristessa
I love you too
Surely I do
I love you too
Surely I do
Surely I do
Surely I do
No, no, no
Did you ever wake up
And find yourself alone
Did you ever wake up far from home
What you believe you’ll wish to receive
Won’t believe in who
Tristessa

Window paine around my heart

Shadow stream around my heart

Do what you’re gonna do

And say what you’re gonna say

Do what you’re gonna do

Yeah, start today

Start today

Windblown shame around my heart

Shadow screen around my heart

What are you coming to?

Script down to the bone

Love me, leave me

On your own, all alone

Do what you’re gonna do

And say what you’re gonna say

Do what you’re gonna do

Yeah, start today

Start today

Additional Info:

On Gish this track is combined with "I'm Going Crazy".


My daydream seems as one inside of you

Though it seems hard to reach through this life

Your blue and hopeless life

My daydream screams bitter 'til the end

The love I share -true- selfish to the heart

My heart, my sacred heart

My daydream dream

My daydream

My daydream dream

My daydream

Your feelings

Motherfuckin’ crazy

I am one as you are three
Try to find messiah in your trinity
Your city to burn
Your city to burn
Try to look for something
In your city to burn, you’ll burn
Am I as I seem?
I’m down
Down, so down
Time is right for a guiding light
Try to turn to reasons in your bitter life
Your city to burn
Your city to burn
Try to look for something
In your city to burn, you’ll burn
See you, don’t you just want to
See you, I am one
See you, don’t you just want to
See you
See you, don’t you just want to
See you, I am one
See you, don’t you just want to
See you, I am one

I spin off and lose my head

Throwing stray a spark instead

Gather strength down in my heel

And dig it in the world I peel

Way down deep within my heart

Lies a soul that’s torn apart

Tell me, tell me what your after

I just want to get there faster

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t give – I unveil

Don’t want to live in your misery

I don’t live – I inhale

Sprinkle all my kisses on your head

Stars full of wishes fill our beds

She said, “I’m dead”

All this pain smothers me

Like a bomb that you can’t see

Tell me, tell me what your after

I just want to get there faster

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t give – I unveil

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t live

Planned a show
Trees and balloons
Ice cream snow
See you in June
Could have known
I would reveal
Should have known
I would conceal your way
She knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
How’s it she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows
Colors show
After the moon
I should go
See you in June
Your way
And she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
How’s it she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows
Open your eyes to these mustered lines
Open your eyes to these mustered lines
The way
And she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
How’s it she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows

(Over you, like an angel)
Bury me in love
Bury me in love
Shared your kisses
Shame your heart
Buried me and it hurts
I love my sister so (chain, unchain)
She don’t smother me (chain, unchain, unchain)
I played the spades I know (unchain)
I’m a jack of all trades
Would you bury me
Want to see her born inside (hide, hide)
Some of the things you just can’t hide
If you see her tell me why (hide, hide)
Why won’t she come outside
If you see her tell me why (hide, hide)
Why won’t she come outside
Want to see her born inside (hide, hide)
Some of the things you just can’t hide
She waits, bury me
She waits, bury me

You wrap your arms around
A feeling that surrounds
Like a liquid peppermint
Just taste the drinks that she served
And this feeling shivers down your spine
Love comes in colors I can’t deny
All that matters is love, love, your love
You’re sleeping in your bed
Just rest your weary head
Maybe you shouldn’t care
Throw away those dreams and dare
And I wonder if it matters to me
Love comes in colors I can’t deny
All that shimmers is love, love, your love
Your love
Your love

All that you suffer is all that you are

All that you smother is all that you are

And you’re seeing, you’re seeing

You’re seeing who you are

What takes meaning is cleaning

The meaning of who you are

On this scene

I will dream

On this scene

All of your struggles beneath your disguise

Drink from the reasons that hold you alive

To ascend from the words of desire and pain

You must rise from the mounds of desire and change

Too late to discover peace of mind

Too late to recover me

All you see and all you breathe and

All you cease to be

Take him down your only son and

What he means to be

Your dream will be

To dream with me

Will you wait, yes I’ll wait

I will wait for you

Will you wait, yes I’ll wait

I will wait for you

To cleanse your life

Takes more than time

Take what you want

Take all of me

Too late to discover peace of mind

(Have no peace of mind)

Too late to recover
