The March 2-3 sessions at Pumpkinland (the band's rehearsal space) took place just before The Smashing Pumpkins entered the studio to record Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Flood joined the band to run through all of the new material, with Pumpkinland outfitted with recording gear as a make-shift studio. This is probably the source for many of the "Pastichio Medley" songs, as many basic tracks for the Mellon Collie album were recorded here, as well as numerous jams and song sketches. The listing here 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.
