The early '90s provided a fresh new sound from the Windy City as the Smashing Pumpkins brought fuzzed out rock to the masses. The band found greater success with their later records, but 'Gish' is definitely a gem that became appreciated more over time.
The Smashing Pumpkins have revealed the next step in their continuous series of reissues with a new 'The Aeroplane Flies High' bunch of box sets, including a six CD + one DVD version, a five-LP version and deluxe digital and standard digital options.
Here's a video that will scramble your brains … Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has just filmed a commercial for furniture and design company Walter E. Smithe. Set in a wrestling ring, chaos unfolds as a game of musical chairs goes awry. Of course, chairs are a staple of any legit wrestling organization, which leads to a strange dilemma in the mind of Corgan, who is a rabid wrestling fan and promoter.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has continued his non-stop press tour with interviews with 'CBS This Morning,' the Chicago Tribune and Sound Magazine recently. Out of the three sit-downs, plenty of riveting news and quotes was offered by Corgan, such as the possibility of writing a triple album, the current state of rock music and much more.
We're beginning to think that Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan may have a grudge against some of his former bandmates. Additionally, and this might be a bit of a stretch, but Corgan seems to also enjoy the occasional trash-talking session. Finally, and by all means correct us if we're wrong, it seems possible that Billy Corgan may possess some sort of internal turmoil. We developed this hypothesis after reading a recent statement from Corgan, where he threw some ill will at some former Smashing Pumpkins members, while analyzing his personal life as well.
Along with Sonic Youth, Cypress Hill and Peter Frampton, the Smashing Pumpkins were featured in 'Homerpalooza.' The episode aired in season seven of the iconic show and parodied the Lollapalooza music festival.
About a week ago, the Smashing Pumpkins announced their plans for a fall arena tour set to kick off in early October. While the cities for the trek were announced, the dates and locations were still a mystery until now.
