November 2000 – Chicago Recording Company

Produced by Billy Corgan; Engineered by Howard Willing

Final recording session of the original Smashing Pumpkins, a final goodbye to fans. 


The final track recorded by the original Smashing Pumpkins line-up in 2000, “Untitled” was semiacoustic home cooking that rekindled the vibes of Gish and Siamese Dream. The chain for Corgan’s solo, one of his favorites, features a DOD FX84 Milk Box compressor and a Shin-Ei Companion Fuzz Wah. “The song was our way of saying ‘f**k you’ to all those people who thought we’d somehow lost our minds and weren’t able to return home,” says Corgan. “We were in the studio for what appeared to be the last time, so it was very emotional, and we had only three days.”[1]
