Gish is good, it's their first album so it's a little more experimental, before they hit the mainstream.? If your Dad has it, can you try listening to his copy? Anyway, definitely check out SD, it's a great album worthy of being in almost everyone's collection (Great lyrics, great guitar, great drums) The album is tight, like Nevermind ok

i'm more of a Mellon Collie fan, "Tonight, Tonight" and "Zero" are some of my favorite Smashing Pumpkins songs.

thats awesome.

i wonder what direction they will go in for this record? the more synth heavy approach like Adore or my rock n roll/metallish like siamese dream/mellon collie?

looks like the rock scene is really looking up with the return of these rock titans, chinese democracy being released soon, Army of Anyone releasing an album and touring, etc... ok

Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan Unveils New Tunes During Solo Set

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan emerged from a year out of the public eye to play a few songs at a multi-act show featuring Pete Townshend in Los Angeles last night (November 7).

The star played late in the gig at the Hotel Cafe, appearing uneasy and tuning his guitar frequently. He went on to play four as-yet-untitled new songs.

Early in the show, Corgan and his bandmate Jimmy Chamberlin, who are currently recording what will be their first album in seven years, stood by and watched performances by Townshend, E from Eels, Minnie Driver, Pete's brother Simon Townshend, and Pete Townshend's girlfriend and songwriting partner Rachel Fuller, who organised the show.

Fuller admitted she thought Corgan was "nervous" since he hadn't played live for so long.

The show was part of Fuller's 'In The Attic' series, which has featured interviews and performances by artists such as The Flaming Lips, Razorlight, The Kooks and The Zutons.

Corgan provided no news about his ongoing work with the reunited Smashing Pumpkins - or whom exactly that entails - but during the show Townshend spoke favorably about the new material he had heard.

Yeah a couple of old heavyweights stepping back in the ring.. Cool to see, I think SP will go back to more guitar rock.

Siamese Dream is a great album-they were really big in the 90's, Tonight, Tonight is an excellent video-it's interesting what happened with D'arcy-does anyone know why she left? I remember rumors of drugs

I can't wait for this album and tour.  I've met Billy Corgan a few times and he's a really nice guy.  He sat and talked with me for about 10 minutes once and for really no reason at all... just to talk.

I like Adore a lot too.  It will be interesting to see what route they take on this new album.  It would be cool to just go back to straight up rock n' roll with a lot less electonics involved.  Has he talked about this album at all yet and has anyone heard of any audio that's around for that solo performance he did?

he is known for his epic-retro sound, and his use of analog recording

I haven't listened to the Pumpkins in quite a few years... I did end up seeing them live at Summersault 2000, when Auf Der Maur was in the band. It was unfortunately a bit of a weak performance... kind of going-through-the-motions. They seemed really unhappy up on stage, and Chaimberlin was the only real standout. I read some comments from some of the other bands on the tour that echoed those impressions of them. I think it was a bit of dark time for the band, in that Machina hadn't sold as well as was hoped, and Corgan sounded very frustrated with the music scene in his interviews. Plus, the band was due to end in a month or so. I had been a big Pumpkins fan for the three years previous to that, so it was a bit of a disappointment.

That being said, a new album could be interesting. I enjoyed hearing Corgan and Chaimberlin back together on the Jimmy Chaimberlin Complex CD.

A Perfect Circle actually performed earlier at the same concert, and they blew the Pumpkins and the rest of the headliners off the stage, IMO. Everyone I spoke to was quite impressed by them. I really enjoyed their two albums, sad to see that the group appears to have fizzled out now, but as long as Tool is still making albums, I'll be happy.

summersault!  that was the best concert i think ive seen come through this crap town-

Finger 11 (before becoming a STAIND rip-off band)
Our lady peace (when they were good-  for those of you who know who they are)
A perfect circle
Foo Fighters
and Smashing pumpkins (my first time crowd surfing was during 'Bullet With Butterfly Wings" at this show)

also i remember Sum41 was the first band on the bill-  right at noon when the gates opened up-   they're managers band (treble charger) was also on the bill.

but back to the smashing pumpkins-   they're album can go either way-   i hope they do something a little more experamental instead of selling out to the radio.

This band drives me nuts,

i like them but i still can't make up my mind if their one of my fave bands.

i find that there are only two kinds of Pumpkins songs, awesome ones and ones that suck. i can't find a songs that are in the middleground. I find that most of their albums are patchy like that and i have trouble sitting through most of them because some songs just bore me. its like, their good stuff i fucking love and think are amazing but i cant stand their decent to bad range of songs.

does anyone else feel this way or am i insane? should i just let them grow on me more?

You're not crazy - Even as a big Pumpkins fan, they're wildly inconsistent.

Some stuff is absolutely terrific, and some material is absolutely terrible and just a mess of noise and vocals.

Still, I've managed to find several songs that register as simply "good," mainly on the Adore and Machina albums. So at least that bucks the "no middle ground" trend in my eyes.

Great band. I love Siamese Dream. They went big just after Nirvana's Nevermind.
