As I said on echoingthesound, Billy better have his shit together. His ego is becoming increasingly foul these past few months regarding much of everything. He's such a hypocrite talking about artists and album sales and free downloads at that trial some months ago to releasing a free album after all of this.

In positive side of this post I state that I will download the eps to see how I like or dislike them.

I really think this is a truely new era in Smashing Pumpkins music and maybe a truer version more than ever before.....for the first time Billy which IS Smashing Pumkins BTW finally for the first time has NO rules to follow and a 44 song effort is a great fucking start for this new era...and the concept is really cool as well...I have a feeling this will be a fairly cool start to a radical new era of Pumpkins music. Oh ya Mike Byrne is the shit so far!

Billy Corgan Calls Smashing Pumpkins Split a 'Mistake'

Dec 10th 2009

Do you regret breaking up Smashing Pumpkins in 2000?

Breaking up the band was a mistake because I think it broke trust with the audience. You had an audience that was very invested in that idea -- whether they were invested in the people or the idea or the songs, I don't know. Like a relationship that you break off from and then try to pick back up, it's never quite the same. It doesn't mean it can't be as good, but it has to be different. That beautiful original feeling got lost in the interim of being away. If we had said, "We just went away for seven years," it would have been similar, but somehow breaking up, there's a violence to it.

Many fans said things like, "You reformed Smashing Pumpkins but really it's just in name." Do you think that's a valid criticism?

Anything is a fair criticism. The question I would ask is, "Do I have the right to do it?" Based upon what I've seen since reforming the band, I do have the right. If I felt I didn't, I would sit here honestly and say, "Nah, I probably should've just left it alone." I've been making music with the intention of connecting with an audience for 20 years now, so at the end of the day I have to be accountable to me in that way. I can't not do what I believe in because somebody else doesn't feel the same way I do about it.

Not one of the top...but it's ok...  Is he going to release 1 song per month ?
I just heard the American Gothic EP and I was surprised ... cool album.

THE SMASHING PUMPKINS
ANNOUNCE INTIMATE U.S. TOUR DATES STARTING JULY 6
IN ADVANCE OF HEADLINE SLOTS AT
TWO SUMMER SONIC FESTIVALS IN JAPAN

The SMASHING PUMPKINS have announced a 12-show run of intimate venues beginning July 6 in Cleveland and wrapping July 21 in Tampa. This marks the iconic band?s first tour since December 2008 and will feature, says leader and founder BILLY CORGAN, ?a balance of classics, a few obscure ones, and new ?Teargarden? material.? Last week, the Pumpkins released the four-song TEARGARDEN BY KALEIDYSCOPE VOL.1: SONGS FOR A SAILOR EP (Martha?s Music/Rocket Science Ventures). This is the first of an eventual 11 specially packaged EPs--taken from the in-progress 44-song work TEARGARDEN BY KALEIDYSCOPE--to be sold in record stores. Notably, all the music is being released online, for free, with no strings attached.

CORGAN and his band mates--guitarist JEFF SCHROEDER, drummer MIKE BYRNE and new bassist NICOLE FIORENTINO?are planning to invite select fans to attend their sound checks (details TBA). ?We are going to do something unique, which is play an invite-only set during sound check of almost all new, unreleased songs,? says Billy. ?We're still figuring out a way to make it possible for some of the fans who'll be in the line outside waiting to get in for that.?

Rehearsals for the tour ?have been fantastic,? adds Billy. ?I haven't been this comfortable in a band situation since about 1995. Musically, we seem to have wound our way back to a more kinetic, electric, and psychedelic sound that reminds me of SP in Gish-Siamese era.?

The decision to play intimate venues keeps in line with the Pumpkins? ?long-standing tradition of trying to start up new tours at smaller venues because it allows the band the opportunity to take some chances musically,? explains Billy. The band has been recording and rehearsing in Los Angeles, and recently broadcast a full session live online: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/live-from-coldwater-studio

After the U.S. dates, the Pumpkins will head to Japan for four shows, including headline performances at two Summer Sonic festivals in Japan--August 7 in Tokyo (Marine Stadium) and August 8 in Osaka (Maishima)--to be followed by two headline dates in Tokyo (August 10 and 11 at Studio Coast).

The very limited edition collector?s EP TEARGARDEN BY KALEIDYSCOPE VOL.1: SONGS FOR A SAILOR (?A Stitch In Time,? ?Widow Wake My Mind,? ?A Song For A Son? and ?Astral Planes?) is packaged in a beautiful silk-screened wooden box. Each box contains a 4-song CD, a vinyl 7? and a hand-carved obelisk from the shadows of the Incan ruins in Machu Picchu. Of the first EP, Jerry Shriver of USA Today described the music as ?a delicious swirl of howling psychedelic rock and melodic ballads (5/25/10)," while Edna Gundersen (also of USA Today) singled out the song ?A Stitch In Time,? noting that ?Billy Corgan binds a pretty melody to shimmery acoustic pop psychedelia, thus extending his brand's relevancy (6/1/10).? Elsewhere, Mikael Wood of the Los Angeles Times cited the ?jammy, psychedelic side, with winding song structures, lyrics about endless seas and astral planes, and buckets of circa-'70s guitar fuzz (5/26/10).?

The Pumpkins also plan to tour South America and Australia in 2010 and hope to return to the U.S. later this year.

Billy Corgan ready to unveil new Smashing Pumpkins lineup on the road

Loaded question: How does this band compare to the original lineup?

We seem to be able to represent the music, particularly the new music, in a way that seems to be a bit more controlled chaos, as opposed to just chaos.

What was great about the old band is that we played with a lot of chaos. When it worked, it was great. But when it didn't work, you didn't know how to control it. It would just blow out of control

Are you friendly with your ex-bandmates: Jimmy Chamberlin, D'Arcy Wretzky and James Iha?

No. I have no relationship with them at this time.

You've blogged about putting some thought into carrying on under the Pumpkins' name. Was Zwan, the band you formed after the Pumpkins temporarily disbanded in 2000, really just the Pumpkins under another name?

When I left the Pumpkins in 2000, I didn't just start a new band. I wanted to approach music from a different perspective. Zwan approached it from more of a folk-rock perspective, more song-based.

The Pumpkins were always, in my mind, more of an art thing, more conceptual.

So when I restarted the Pumpkins [in 2005], it was very much about coming back to the idea of being in a progressive-type of band.
I know for somebody on the outside, it doesn't necessarily always seem apparent what those differences would be, 'cause I'm still the main songwriter guy. But for me, it's a huge difference, in terms of what I talk about and what I'm focused on.

I never thought of Zwan as any version or incarnation of the Pumpkins at all. In fact, I'd planned on going in a totally different direction. I didn't even anticipate that Jimmy [Chamberlin, the ex-Pumpkins drummer who also played in Zwan] was going to join the band. It just ended up working out that way.

Smashing Pumpkins Perform New Song at Benefit for Madina Lake Bassist

Jul 28th 2010

Corgan then treated the fans to a new song, 'Blessed Mothers,' but blanked on the lyrics, saying the tune was usually reserved for their sound checks. Stalling, he started to take requests from the audience while a stagehand brought out a lyric sheet and placed it on a staff before him. He joked about being unprofessional but then continued the song without a hitch.
