Smashing Pumpkins DVD Giveaway

Last week it was the Parliament Funkadelic DVD, this week I've got a copy of If All Goes Wrong, the latest offering from the Smashing Pumpkins. It's a double disc DVD release that came out last month and would make the perfect gift for you or that special someone you know who's a SP fan.

The first disc is a documentary that was filmed during the bands recent (semi-) reunion tour last year. It's hard to believe that Billy Corgan and crew first served up music twenty years ago and released their first Gish back in 1991. I say semi-reunion because of the original members, it's just Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin from the original crew. The documentary collects clips of the band, fans, journalists, and other musicians talking about the tour and band in general. Also included is an interview with Pete Townsend of the Who.

The second disc is where the good stuff is. It's a recording of the band playing live at San Francisco’s famed Fillmore Auditorium that runs 115 minutes and includes five previously unreleased songs (including Peace+Love, which you can listen to below) as well as other rarities.

All this could be yours, too! Just leave a comment (or e-mail me) with your name and e-mail address and you'll be in the running. I'll pick a winner at random this Friday, contact them pronto, and try to get it to you before St. Nick comes down your chimney.

Visit the DVD's label Coming Home Studios, the band's website, and become their friends on MySpace.
