The Smashing Pumpkins ‎– Machina II / The Friends & Enemies Of Modern Music

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
A followup to Machina, and the last album from the band before their hiatus. As a final farewell, a limited pressing album was made (3x10" + 2LP, 5 discs total) and given away to be bootlegged out among the fans.

As there was no tracklist included with the release, song titles are given as their standard name, and some were given additional descriptive comments in parentheses by SPFC. A press release issued later includes slightly different versions of the song titles, which are given in quotes as appropriate.

All tracks are completely new/unheard, or new alternate versions of previously existing songs, except for Real Love, which appeared on the Friends & Enemies" 60m cassette>bootleg, and Le Deux Machina, which is the same synth version as found on the acoustic machina demos. The other songs which appear (i.e. Atom Bomb, Saturnine) are alternate versions which differ from otherwise released B-sides, etc.

Just to clear up any possible confusion, this is the final album from the band. There are 25 copies on vinyl only. There is not, and will not be a CD pressing.

mp3 and lossless downloads can be found on archive.org, commissioned by the band.

My copy of Machina II was provided by a Canadian fan club. They received one of the original vinyl copies provided by the band and transfred it to CD. One just have to send some cd-r and wait for a mail return. That worked and i still have my copy which sounds great.
