Iha: ...happened to me on the way to the show, the funny thing is that.. oh you do
Corgan: So how are you, how are you, how are you? Want me to start? Happy to be here. We hope you can handle us quiet
Iha: I'm not
Corgan: He has a volume complex. So this one of the songs on our new album called 'Rocket'
Corgan: Can you make the lights brighter so we can see the people in the audience? It's really weird to not be able to see anyone... brighter. We want to see your pretty beautiful faces. So this is our new single 'Cherub Rock'
Cherub Rock
Iha: It's of course always nice to be back in France. Whenever... whenever we break a string it gives us a small time to talk about ourselves. How much [unintelligible] fish
Corgan: Does anyone know how to change a guitar string? It's very embarassing. So speaking of fish, this is off our debut album 'Fish'
Corgan: So... everyone said [in french accent] 'don't play acoustic it's go bad idea and no one's gonna like you'
Iha: Since we paid you all it's...
Corgan: Thank you
Iha: You're applauding more than we thought you would
Corgan: It's amazing what a couple of francs will get you
Corgan: James get the tuner, James, the tuner... danke schoen. See it wouldn't be a Pumpkins show without technical problems, mental stress, loss of self.. Does anyone understand what I'm saying? No one understand me in America so I'm used to it. Here's a fugue I wrote
[plays guitar notes]
I learnt it from Klaus Meine of the Scorpions. Are you ready there, Jimmy? So that was 'Today' from our new album 'Siamese Scream' and this is called 'Spaceboy', which is also off our new album. We hopes you likes it
Iha: We're simply not that good
Corgan: This is an oldie but a goodie


Corgan: If you going to clap you must clap in time...

my parents used to beat me in rhythm

Corgan: Thank you. You make us want to eat chocolate. We'd like to do a song by Thin Lizzy. I'm related to Phil Lynott so it's OK. So...
Dancing In The Moonlight
Iha: Spaced out
Disarm (abandoned)
Corgan: You must turn off that delay on the things cos it's driving me crazy, so...
Corgan: So... that's Jimmy
Corgan: Do the douche, you gotta... that's Jimmy!
[plays drum rolls]
Iha: That's D'arcy!
[plays bass line]
Corgan: That's James!
[plays lead notes]
Corgan: My name is Fred
Corgan: This is a song off our new album called 'Hummer' and it's begun by Jimmy

Corgan: So we'd like to do a Mr David Bowie song featuring lead vocals by Mr James Iha. He is related to David Bowie
Iha: My hair is always
Corgan: Any requests?
Audience member: 'Window Paine'
Corgan: No, no electric guitar to, um...
Audience member: 'Bye June'
Corgan: Don't remember how it goes
Audience member: 'Daydream'
Corgan: D'arcy has a sore throat
Crowd: 'Kick Out The Jams'!
Corgan: Wrong town, wrong band, wrong era, wrong hair
unknown tease
Wretzky: That was really a trick question
Corgan: Nobody has any requests?
Wretzky: Stop leading them on, don't string them along like this
Corgan: It's the game I play where like 'what you want to hear' then I don't play any of it. This here's a song called 'Luna'
