Flashback Friday: If All Goes Wrong

When the Smashing Pumpkins returned to the United States for their first set of shows since December of 2000 they chose to do two residency. One on the East Coast at the Orange Peel in Ashville, North Carolina and the other at the historic Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, California. During these shows the Smashing Pumpkins started to record a video for a future released to be titled If All Goes Wrong.

If All Goes Wrong is split up into 2 disc. Disc 1 is the documentary and Disc two is live concert footage from the Pumpkins show in San Francisco along with a special 5 track rehearsal on the floor of the Fillmore which contained 5 songs written during the residency.

The documentary disc would included footage of the band talking about their experiences. Billy would also talk about the different songs that were written during this residency. In addition Peter Townson gives his thoughts as a bonus section as well throughout the documentary.

The documentary of If All Goes Wrong was played in theaters across the USA before its retail release a few weeks later. Leading up to these theater premier a number of short teasers called “If All Goes Wrong – Video Postcard” came out on the Smashing Pumpkins YouTube channel. The DVD was released in November 11th 2008.
