Has anyone else heard Thrice's Cover of Smashing Pumpkins 1979. I was driving around listening to Octane and all of a sudden an exclusive track and Bam. I can't find a rip of it anywhere. I was wondering if anyone else has heard it or have it.

 

FOUND IT!

That's a sick cover! I wonder how long ago it was recorded? Makes you wonder how many other songs like this are floating out in the interwebs.

So I haven't posted here in eons. I guess life just has me busy now (my daughter just turned 1 so it's all been for great reasons!). That being said I'm honestly somewhat surprised by your reactions to the new record. I'm NOT surprised to your opinions on La Dispute. Good fucking god they're awful. Just beyond horrendous. Someone in the Thrice camp's sister has to be banging one of the guys or something, right?

For TBEITBN I'm actually somewhat relieved that Dustin went away from his religious undertones and focused more on current affairs. Yeah, that almost automatically makes his lyrics not quite as deep but that also allows for a more instant connection emotionally. I obviously understand opinions are opinions, but Adam, you sure don't seem to like Stand With Me very much. But when I listen to it (especially through headphones with my eyes closed) it basically brings me to tears. One thing I've always loved about Thrice is their ability to take a more or less basic song structure (2 chords verse, 2-4 chorus, basic leads) but have them blend together in a way that sends chills up your spine. Overall I'd say Vhiessu is still my favorite album they've ever put out but ask me in a couple years and it's very possible that answer could change to TBEITBN. It's very cohesive.

That being said, JEW with Thrice, OMG MADE THAT HAPPEN DAMMIT!!! haha. Hope you're all doing well, it's been too long.

 

We've missed your annual drive-bys the last few tax seasons.

I know, I need to come by here more often. Damn life getting in the way!

this 1979 cover recorded recently?   as the youtube description suggests.  

much better nasal tone than the original singer.  there's an interesting doublebind in the "Whale Wars" (paul watson and his sea shepherd band)tv show's smashingpumpkins theme song repeated lyric "despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage!"

we would love to hear "thrice" cover that song.  believe it's called the world is a vampire.  actually it's called bullet with butterfly wings, a more interesting title.

anyone know if Ed is still doing professional work for "angels and airwaves"  ?   wikipedia says his current bassist status in that group is uncertain.  sounds like some occult dave gome ufo-worship mars hill rover hella negro spiritual post-funk abomination.  not like smashing pumpkins at all.
