    I really like how the crowd goes apeshit on Chrysanthemum, first song of first Zwan live show. I remember listening to shitty audience recordings until nicer ones came out. 2002 with the Hideout stuff was very well as 2003, with those amazing Jesus I/GGSTWOF or MSOTS variations. The album was a little letdown, although the DVD part with earlier Zwan songs is really really good.

    instead of kicking everyone out of the band and moving on, corgan should have just reformed with different bandmates. gather a new line-up and start anew.

    I think those first live songs that were released should be made into another album! There was some serious brilliance in there.
