Before entering a studio to record Mellon Collie, Flood and the Pumpkins went into Pumpkinland, their Chicago rehearsal space, to run through all of the new material, now outfitted with recording gear as a make-shift studio. This is probably the source for many of the Pasticio Medley songs, as many basic tracks for the Mellon Collie album were recorded here, as well as numerous jams and song sketches. The above listing is the contents of two days of rehearsal filmed for the MTV Rockumentary on The Smashing Pumpkins, sourced from the bootleg video called “666.” Evidence suggests that video exists of "God" and "Rubberman" as well, since they appeared on the Rockumentary but not the 666 tape bootleg.
