The ‘Pumpkins played in Brixton the last couple of nights. “Shakedown 1979, cool kids never have the time, on a live wire right up off the street, you and I should meet.” Was it the loops, the video, or the sparkle of this gem within the impressive (but self-indulgent) sprawl of the 2-hour-long Mellon Collie and …? Probably all of the above, but I have a feeling that this is one of those tracks I’ll be requesting at future family events to show them how cool the generation was.
