So if I feel like playing ‘em, I’ll fucking play ‘em. My mentality has always been, ‘okay, you want it? We’re going to shove it down your throat.’” (1)

Between 2008 and 2010, SPfreaks put together 4 compilations of Smashing Pumpkins live songs and made these available as mp3s. In these months we present a run-down of them. #4, being the last one in the series, was originally posted on 2010.06.22. For all these live compilations, jewelcase artwork has been created. The artwork is included in the downloads.

The booklets need to be printed @ 240 mm x 120 mm & folded to fit inside a jewelcase. The back inlays need to be printed @ 150 mm x 117,50 mm, then folded 6.5 mm from the sides, to fit inside a jewelcase.

For #4 the theme is: Covers! Over the years Smashing Pumpkins never hesitated to play songs from other bands, be it old blues songs, be it modern rock classics. This set of 31 songs, spanning their career from 1988 to 2009, contains many surprising choices of covers. Go grab it!

290 MB & more important: almost 3 hours of Smashing Pumpkins doing covers of other bands. Prepare for a few surprises, guys, because who knew Smashing Pumpkins did “I Just Wanna Make Love To You”, originally written by Willie Dixon in 1954? And what about “Ol’ 55” of Tom Waits? Here is the full setlist, hope you guys like it!
