Free Friday Part III: Smashing Pumpkins – “Barb Wire”

To celebrate the launch of the SPRC (and to round out the weekend-long launch of Free Friday), here’s another secret.  The SPRC placed another “Easter Egg” on its homepage.  The second hidden track is “Barb Wire” and sounds a lot like an early version of the Smashing Pumpkins’ rarity:  “Tulips.”  “Barb Wire” is another Siamese Dream-era track and has a heavy bass line, dense layers of distorted guitars, and vocals buried so low in the mix that they are very hard to hear, if you are lucky enough to hear them at all.  Download the song here, by clicking on the rat at the bottom of the screen towards the left.  As with “Suicide Kiss,” the download should begin automatically once you click on the rat.
