From an interview with Billy Corgan:

August 12, 2010

I read that you recently fainted onstage in Tampa. Are you okay?

Oh yeah, I'm fine. Just a bit bruised up. It's happened before, where I just? over sing. I just faint. If you see the video, I fall down and when I wake up five seconds later, I get up and finish the song. The last time it happened was in 2008. I've done like 1,700 shows, so it's not a normal occurrence, that's for sure.

Is that why you decided to break away from the major label system with your new album?

Yes, because major labels are not interested in my musical life. There was a time when major labels were interested in helping an artist reach a place of high creative output, because they could make a lot of money off it. You can look at a million artists -- Bruce Springsteen to Madonna to Prince to U2. They took people on a journey, and people were invested in the journey. They wanted those albums because they wanted to know where that artist was taking them. If you make it about, "What can you give me today?" then, well, that's not music. I call it McDonald's music. It's fast food music.

I figured the other day as Ava Adore is probably one of my favorite Smashing Pumpkins songs, surely i should listen to the album it is off.

So i did, and wow. Is Adore just seriously under-rated?

What an interesting album, i like the mix of their sound with the electronica, especially the drum machine dance-ish beats. Very cool stuff, the odd track bored me, but Appels + Oranjes, what a track!!!!! Trippin balls for sure.

I think every Pumpkins album after Mellon Collie is ridiculously under-rated. But of all of those, yes, Adore is definitely the most interesting of them... if not actually my favourite.

tbh Mellon Collie doesnt do much for me, i dislike how Billy sings on that album, too whiney for the most part.

But before and after im fairly happy with what ive heard!

Adore definitely has a great atmosphere about it, something i love.


Btw, i think "Perfect" takes alot of influence from The Cure.

Billy Corgan L.A. Weekly interview:

Thursday, Aug 26 2010

The real, true internal story of the Smashing Pumpkins is actually a little bit like Cinderella [laughs].

So they'd just sit there and complain, like the wicked stepsisters, "I don't like this" and "I don't like that." I'd go and sit in the three-hour meetings with the labels ? me, the manager ? and I'd deal with all the details, and labels would even offer me deals on the side, give me more money to do what I wanted to do, and I'd say, "No, I don't wanna do that because it would fuck my bandmates." I would sort of put myself as the protector of the family, and then I'd go home to the family and they'd just fucking hate me.

I don't know if it was intended or not, but I find pretty much the entire album has a distinct Cure vibe to it - always enjoyed it and found it a much more focused effort than MACHINA.

This from an interview with Billy Corgan.

September 15, 2010

Do you feel like you have something more to prove now you?re the only original Pumpkin in this line up?

I feel my public persona at times has overshadowed my musical accomplishment. I get frustrated when I see people who?ve done less than me and had less success than me enjoying more ass-kissing. I?m held up to different standards.

Presumably you don?t want to share a stage with your former bandmates?

Why would I get on stage with someone who doesn?t call me for Christmas? Because the guy in the back row who doesn?t give a f-- about my new song, that?s the only way he wants to hear Bullet with Butterfly Wings? They?re silly arguments to me. I understand. I really do. I?ve been in that situation as fan, it?s only one or two original members in a band. I?ve seen bands with members who weren?t part of the original band and I really enjoyed the show, I enjoyed the way they played. And I?ve seen original line ups where they obviously hate each other and it?s boring because there?s no chemistry. It?s more about people?s fantasy. It?s like their porn. It?s their porn fantasy of my world but my world has never been like that. When was my band ever intact? The only time the band only really worked together on the same page in any way that resembles normalcy was Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and even then I still did 85% of those songs.

Wow. Thats all i can say, that album is astonishing!!!! Its a perfect blend of Adore, Mellon Collie and Siamese Dream. Raindrops + Sunshowers, Stand Inside your Love, Heavy Metal Machine. Awesome stuff!!!

On April 26, 2011, Corgan announced via a video uploaded to the band's Facebook page that the band will record and release a new album titled Oceania, labeled as "an album within an album" in regards to the Teargarden by Kaleidyscope project, which will see the light around September. Also, the entire pre-break up discography will be reissued and remastered, starting with Gish, Siamese Dream, and Pisces Iscariot, expected in late 2011. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, The Aeroplane Flies High, and Adore will be released in 2012, and finally, Machina/The Machines of God and the yet commercially unreleased Machina II/Friends and Enemies of Modern Music are expected to be released in 2013. The reissues will contain extra tracks.

I love it. The best thing Billy's done since Mellon Collie, and the record of the year so far. Smiley

They still have their moments but not as solid start to finish as the old stuff.
