Pastichio Medley is a medley of riffs from a variety of sources recorded after Siamese Dream and before the completion of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.

"Rachel" bears a similar sound to, and is apparently an early version of, the Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness song "X.Y.U.".[1] As well, "Disconnected" is an as-yet-to-be-completed instrumental version of "The Aeroplane Flies High (Turns Left, Looks Right)".[2]

Full versions of "Feelium", "Knuckles", "New Waver", "Zoom", "Phang", "Blast", and "Speed" were released on 2012's reissue of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness; and full versions of "Millieu", "Jackboot", "Rings", "The Groover", and "Star Song" were released on 2013's reissue of The Aeroplane Flies High.

Reversed extras

On the 2012 deluxe reissue of Mellon Collie, "Pastichio" was re-sequenced into a 44-second track called "reversed extras". Most clips are identical to those found on the original "Pastichio", only shorter and in reverse. Others however are alternate takes or are not reversed. Some clips do not exceed a single second.
