The Spring 1988 sessions at William Corgan Sr.'s home studio on Eddy Street at least in part produced the demo cassette Nothing Ever Changes. The lineup included: Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Ron Roesing (formerly of The Marked) on drums; this could be viewed as the very first recording that ceased to be The Marked and became The Smashing Pumpkins. "Heart" and "Cross" were originally two separate songs, but were joined together into one. "It Suits Me Well" is actually "The Vigil". Although a tape exists as the below four-song configuration, the original Nothing Ever Changes was about 60 minutes in length and was Corgan's first attempt at a full-length album; it contained a combination of songs, spoken word selections (recalled as "bad poetry"), and instrumentals.
