From www.nme.com:

BILLY CORGAN has said he wants to reform SMASHING PUMPKINS.

The singer, who has completed work on his debut solo album ?TheFutureEmbrace? has taken out a full page advert in the Chicago Tribune newspaper where he said ?his heart? remains with his old band.

He wrote: ?When I played the final Smashing Pumpkins show on the night of December 2, 2000, I walked off the stage believing that I was forever leaving a piece of my life behind. I naively tried to start a new band, but found that my heart wasn?t in it. I moved away to pursue a love that I once had but got lost. SO I moved back home to heal what was broken in me, and to my surprise I found what I was looking or. I found that my heart is in Chicago, and that my heart is in the Smashing Pumpkins.

?For a year now I have walked around with a secret, a secret I chose to keep. But now I want you to be among the first to know that I have made plans to renew and revive the Smashing Pumpkins. I want my band back, and my songs, and my dreams. In this desire I feel I have come home again.?

Smashing Pumpkins split in 2000 after the release of their final album ?Machina?. Following the split Corgan formed Zwan, who split after one record.

I would absolutely melt? drool

Last I knew, he doesn't even speak to D'arcy or James anymore, but fuck me I'm excited.

Smashing Pumpkins split in 2000 after the release of their final album ?Machina?

D'arcy had quit by this time, but they also released Machina II/The Friends and Enemies of Modern Music. I think the record company told them where to stick it though, so they just gave a few copies to some close friends/fans and told them to do what they wanted with them/put it on the internet for free, so that it would be available to the fans. It can be downloaded from www.billy-corgan.com if you're interested? Smiley

I very much doubt Billy would be lying about this, but it doesn't take a genius to work out why he could have chosen now as the time to mention it. The timing of this statement just after releasing his solo album, Thefutureembrace, will no doubt boost sales.

Geez - he sounds rather pathetic really.

Will `the Great Pumpkin' stand alone?

Greg Kot
Published June 22, 2005


Billy Corgan's full-page ads in Chicago newspapers announcing his decision "to renew and revive The Smashing Pumpkins" appear to be more an invitation than a done deal.

Corgan said Tuesday "the door is clearly open" to reconvene the alternative rock powerhouse's original lineup but would not say if any of the other Pumpkins knew of his plans.

Though it's certain a Pumpkins reunion would be built on singer-guitarist Corgan and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, who remain friends and collaborators, Corgan would only say that he'd welcome a return by guitarist James Iha and bassist D'Arcy Wretzky, who left the band on acrimonious terms. The ex-Pumpkins could not be reached for comment.

"What I've done [by going public] is I've set the intention," Corgan said. "It's going to happen."

The Pumpkins, founded by Corgan and Iha in 1987, and joined the next year by Wretzky and Chamberlin, became one of the most acclaimed and commercially successful bands ever to come out of Chicago and helped provide the soundtrack for the alternative rock generation. Before concluding their career at a December 2000 concert at Metro, the Pumpkins sold more than 25 million albums.

Corgan went on to establish Zwan with Chamberlin and three indie rock musicians, but the quintet imploded in 2003 after releasing only one album. Corgan then worked on numerous solo projects, including a poetry book, a collection of Chicago-inspired songs that he performed in concert last year, and an album, "TheFutureEmbrace," released Tuesday.

Corgan said he realized he wanted to revive the band while working on "TheFutureEmbrace." He said he and Chamberlin were listening to unreleased Pumpkins songs to decide which ones to include in an Internet release last year, "and this cloud came over the room."

"I started thinking differently, I started feeling differently," he said. "That guy came back. The soul of that thing is different than this guy here. If you put me into that band, I turn into the Great Pumpkin again."

Corgan insisted he won't be going back for nostalgic reasons, or because his sales as a solo artist don't match the levels he achieved with his old band.

"The work's not done," he said. "I thought it was done. I left [the Pumpkins] for very noble reasons. My loyalty to James [Iha] was really the big splitter in that. And now that I look at it, I know there is more."

The question remains who besides Chamberlin would want to sign up for such an assignment. Corgan laughed. "That band has a soul," he said. "I don't care who's in it."

In the interim, Corgan has a tour to complete for his solo album, beginning Wednesday in Atlanta

if Iha and D'Arcy don't join in, then in theory, it won't be much different from Zwan.
BUT, if it helps Corgan think in a different way musically, then I can totally understand him.
it's all about the state of mind ok

I would love to see this happen! yes

I love Mary Star of the Sea so much  yes It's brilliant

I can understand it, but I would at least like to see one of them back with Billy and Jimmy. All of them back together would be ideal. I'd still be really happy if Billy could manage to get James, but had to bring Melissa Auf der Maur back instead of D'arcy.

hmmm.........

I wonder.

Let's say he reformed the band with new people because he couldnt reconcile with Iha and D'Arcy .  Will there be a bunch of people on the Smashing Pumpkins boards that yell, "This new band is not SP!!!!.  Fuck the new band!!!"   Grin

Anyway, I happen to think that a band's soul exists because of its members, not independently of them.  But I have to admit I'm curious and definitely interested in the new reincarnation if it ever gets off the ground.

about the SP boards thing, yeah I think that will happen, just like what's going on here.
Im not anywhere near as big a fan of SP as I am or GN'R, and the members that stood out in SP to me, was Billy and Jimmy.
but ultimately, nothing beats the original band.

Did anyone else here get the new Billy album.  Its decent.  I hope it grows on me a little.  SP getting back together (hopefully), made my fucking week.   I honestly don't even care who's in the band this time around.  As long as Billy is there, who cares?  It would be great to have some of the original members back, but hey, as we know from GNR, you can't always get what you want. smoking
