Smashing Pumpkins - "Billy's Gravity Demos I" (1994)

The Smashing Pumpkins' Billy's Gravity Demos I, also known as simply Gravity Demos, is a mostly instrumental demo compilation recorded to cassette in 1994 and given to a fan by Billy Corgan in April 2000 to distribute freely. Track 3, "Bullet With Butterfly Wings," has rough vocals making it the only non-instrumental track of the bunch.

A few tracks from the demo were made commercially available on the 2013 deluxe reissue of the The Aeroplane Flies High box set, but most remain unreleased as of this posting.
