Smashing Pumpkins...and it's not even Halloween
OK, so where have I been hiding? I freely admit that I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but how did I not find out until today that the Smashing Pumpkins were getting back together to record some new material for a new album???? According to the SP / Billy Corgan website,
"It's official, The Smashing Pumpkins are currently writing songs for their upcoming album, their first since 2000. No release date has yet been set, but the band plans to begin recording this summer."
I can still remember watching James playing his guitar with a Laser Tag gun (AMAZINGLY, these things are still around...although they look quite a bit fancier than the ones I remember. Check out LASERTRON's website on becoming a "Professional Laser Tag Operator"!!!) on the live version of Silverf**k on the Vieuphoria video a la the Siamese Dream years.
