Smashing Pumpkins at Terminal 5 in 2010 (more by Jen Maier)
Smashing Pumpkins

The Smashing Pumpkins (aka Billy Corgan and some other people) have a lot up their sleeves for the next few months. For one, they're reissuing all of their pre-breakup albums, despite Billy's feelings on nostalgia. They plan to reissue the material over the course of the next three years, starting with a reissue of the first two albums Gish and Siamese Dream on November 15 via EMI. Reissues of Pisces Iscariot, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, The Aeroplane Flies High, and Adore are due out in 2012 and the Machina albums will be reissued as a set with a greatest hits album in 2013.

Billy, who thinks albums are no longer relevant and instead began working on the Teargarden by Kaleidyscope project, where the band will release individual songs and compile EPs of every four songs, is also working on a new Smashing Pumpkins LP, Oceania. He recently spoke to Musicradar about how the new album might come off as a contradiction:

I still stand by my view that I don't think albums are particularly relevant at this time. That may change. But as far as making music... Nobody I know listen to albums anymore. Nobody. I don't care if they're 20 or 55. But for me, from a writing point of view, it's really going to focus me to put a group of songs together that are supposed to go together.

It's been a while, so I'm looking forward to making one cohesive statement, the idea that you can say something bigger with a group of songs. And if it pushes me harder to write better music, and people only end up listening to the three best songs, I can live with that. In the past that would have really pissed me off.

The one-song-at-a-time thing has, in many ways, turned this into a singles format. It puts so much pressure on the one song we're releasing, and people then read more into it than they should. For instance, why would we release, say, a cool B-side when we're going to get 50,000 people on Twitter saying, 'This song sucks!'? Maybe they don't get the joke of why we put it out. So I'm really looking forward to getting into some deeper material, and maybe the seventh-best song on Oceania, if it was put up by itself on the internet, it might not get the proper look that it could when it's grouped in with other songs.

Oceania is set to come out in early 2012 and the tracklist is below. The album is putting the plans of releasing individual songs on hold. The most recent song the band did was "Owata," which was finished earlier this year. You can watch the video for that track below.

The Smashing Pumpkins are going on a short tour in October while they prepare a larger one for 2012. They're reportedly playing "material off Oceania, classics, and deep cuts." The tour is with Fancy Space People (featuring Don Bolles of The Germs, Celebrity Skin, 45 Grave) and Light FM (featuring current Pumpkins bassist Nicole Fiorentino). They'll play NYC on October 18 at Terminal 5. Tickets go on sale Friday (8/19) at 10 AM. All dates below...

Smashing Pumpkins's music did not age well. I tried listening to them the other day, and Billy's voice gave me an ulcer.

I still think it's so cool that he got that Siamese Dream cover kid to play bass in his band (they are not the SP's though).

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2011 11:37 AM

I still listen to albums. Everyone I get I listen all the way through at least once...if one song caught my attention I am sure something else on the album will.

Is Corgan planning on insulting his audience at these shows? I will only attend if he is going to make an ass of himself.

an old friend (who is no longer a friend) was a huge pumpkins fan and it made me hate them even more. thank god i'm no longer friends with him.

I disagree with the notion that no one listens to albums anymore. Sure if your target audience is the iTunes crowd and you're in it ford the money then it doesn't make sense to make an album. Even considering that there's a list of the top albums on iTunes so he's wrong for stating that no one listens to albums anymore. I personally hate buying one off tracks and I only do it when the song isn't available on an album.

billy corgan lives in a dream world where people only do things that he does (ie download one song and not the entire album). he's pathetic

ha i still (predominantly) listen to entire albums as well, including siamese dream and mellon collie (although usually just one disc at a time, so not sure that counts as listening to the album, but i do listen to both discs?)

i also frequently play bodies and xyu on internet jukeboxes

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2011 11:52 AM

I kinda agree on the album thing. Sure, when I get a new album, i listen through a few times to separate the wheat from the chaff. But then I just pretty much only listen to a few of the songs.

Then again, I also think the SP albums (the first few anyway) totally still hold up. Though there's no denying corgan's an ass. Not that I wish it had happened, but sometimes I pretend that he and Rivers Cuomo died together in a bus accident in 1996. They'd be legends now, instead of... this.

Looks like he's lost touch with the indie community if he literally knows of NO ONE that listens to albums. How is that possible?

These comments are absurd! Smashing Pumpkins fucking ruled the 90s. Gish still sounds like a good indie band today, and Siamese Dream is a 5-star album.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2011 12:00 PM

When I buy an album and find that only a few songs are good I pretty much lose interest in the band entirely and completely forget about them.

Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie, and Gish are WAY better albums then 95% of the bands on this site can ever hope to make. That being said I have absolutely no interest in this incarnation of SP or any new music they make!

12:13 - I agree completely. An absolutely brilliant guitarist, musician, and songwriter. His ego and struggle are all part of the brilliant madness and sadness that is the Smashing Pumpkins. Billy IS the Smashing Pumpkins, period.

You're right. Any idiot that states they needed Iha and D'arcy to like them are missing the point. The band is, was, and will always be Billy.

Jimmy was a pretty incredible drummer, however. His contributions are pretty undenaible.

However, talk about an artist challenging his audience from album to album. When did Billy ever repeat himself? Even Zeitgeist didn't repeat. It's the only terd in the catalog.

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2011 1:10 PM

I have a hard time hating on Billy Corgan b/c of all the amazing shit he came out with over the years. Siamese Dream has to be one of the best albums of all time. That song "Mayonnaise" is the f'ing truth, god damn. I was obsessed with Mellon Collie to the point where it started getting scary. Guy is a genius, no doubt about it.

But listening to him speak / reading his interviews these days is like nails on a chalkboard for me. I just feel bad for him. Falling from grace that hard can't be easy.

Billy is SP no matter how you want to look at it. Everyone else was fine but every hit they ever had came from him and only him

Posted by Anonymous | August 12, 2011 1:50 PM

My new perspective on Billy Corgan is that I was fortunate enough to have my musical taste intersect with his constantly (d)evolving song writing output for a few years. Siamese Dream is a near perfect record, and I really do appreciate that he never made the same record twice, and kept challenging himself and his fans. Unfortunately, most of his stuff is unlistenable these days, or my tastes have changed too much, but I appreciated the ride.

12:13, yeah Billy is talented as a songwriter, but you're making a bold statement there... Just off the top of my head in the last 30 years, hmm, let's see.. Richard Thompson, Difford/Tillbrook, Andy Partridge, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, Matthew Sweet, Glen Hansard, Babyface (don't laugh, he wrote just about every R&B song on the charts from like 1990-1995), Diane Warren, just to name a few.

I was pretty much obsessed with SP as a teenager. I don't know if he's the best songwriter of the past 30, but he was really, really prolific from 90-00.. His best b-sides (whir, vanity, cherry, jupiter's lament, home, obscured etc) were pretty amazing imo.

Maybe people don't listen to albums with running times similar to "Mellon Collie" or "The Wall" anymore, but I think that bands have responded to changing taste by creating more focused albums, albeit shorter in length. LP's had originated this style, but once CD's popped out and bands could put over 80 minutes of material onto one disc, tracks that may have be left off the album made the cut due to the extra room. Now we are in the golden age of the 40 minute album. 10 songs to state your purpose. I think thats just right.

Posted by Doc | August 12, 2011 5:14 PM

If a band can't make a good album, i can't say that I have any real respect for them simply because they have a song or two that I like.

No matter how great you might think those earlier albums are (and greatest band of the nineties? Really? "I'm just a rat in a cage?") the fact is he's not the same person he was fifteen years ago. He went from a geeky, naive rocker kid who tried really, really hard to be successful into spoiled, bitter, out of touch shell who can't come to terms with the fact that he'll never have a hit video on MTV or go triple platinum again and clings to relevance by dating Jessica Simpson, dragging a corpse of a band on the road and crying about the fact that pavement made fun of him in 1995. (seriously - he's still upset about this.)

This is the reality, folks.

Well, I guess that settles it. Thanks for taking that leadership. 9:21. I guess that we can shut down Brooklyn Vegan, no check that, the entire internet.

It must have seemed nice in your puny mind while it lasted, though. Now, eat up your peas and carrots so you can go outside and play in the cornfield with your friends.

While farting around in Wikipedia tonight, I stumbled upon the entry for 1996 MTV Video Music Awards (which was the last time that both Tupak Shakur and the original Van Halen lineup ever appeared, but I digress). Anywho, here's a little objective frame of reference:
"Smashing Pumpkins led the pack that night with nine nominations and seven wins. Of these, their video for "Tonight, Tonight" earned seven wins out of its eight nominations, including Video of the Year, thus making it the night's most nominated and biggest winning video. Furthermore, their video for "1979" earned the one Moonman it was nominated for: Best Alternative Video."

You're right, I'm completely wrong. I think everyone here can unanimously agree that Billy Corgan's output is exponetianlly better now than it was fifteen years ago, that the smashing pumpkins have the best line up ever and that dating Jessica Simpson was clearly the greatest thing he's ever done.

Mr. Corgan,

I love The Smashing Pumpkins, always have, always will, even if all albums from now till the end are total crap. You've done so much life-changing amazing material in your career that I can forgive transgressions like "Zeitgeist" or "Songs For A Sailor" (the only 2 Pumpkins releases that I have been disappointed in in their entire careers, all the way up to and including "Oceania", a fantastic return to form). "Tearganden... Vol. 2: The Solstice Bare" was a marked improvement and step in the right direction, but the Pumpkins magic was missing. I do NOT like the one-song-at-a-time-release method. Not at all. Albums ARE relevant. It's what we (the fans) love to own to support the artistry, but not at the cost of 40-60 bucks for a 4-song box-set of non-cohesive sub-par material.

The cohesiveness and concepts on Corgan's albums is one of the many things that make a Pumpkins recrd so epic. Having said that, I've enjoyed some of the "Teargarden..." tracks, but I felt that Vol. 1 - "Songs For a Sailor" had 1 great song ("Song For a Son") and 3 cuts that in my opinion are certainly nowhere near the quality of "Mellon Collie" B-sides contained on "Aeroplane Flies High". Now, that doesn't mean that the songs are bad songs... just bad for the Pumpkins' namesake. Not nearly what they are capable of. I think the reason is because they followed this one-song-at-a-time crummy release plan. It seems like a way to milk people like me (dedicated fans) of as much money possible for what will end up to be a 3-CD set (when finished, compiled, and then released in a cohesive form).

These strategies for selling "Zeitgest" were pretty greedy too if you ask me. There were what, 3 or 4 versions of the same album that you had to buy if you wanted the "complete" album, b/c each version contained at least 1 song of material not included on the other versions. A marketing plan that I find disrespectful to me, a lifelong fan.

Having said that, and having said as well that nothing this band could ever release would tarnish my reputation of them, I have to say that I am thoroughly pleased with "Oceania" b/c of the cohesiveness, not the lack thereof.

Mr. Corgan, you know what I'm doing with the "Teargarden.../"Oceania" material? I'm making a cohesive "best of Teargarden ((so far) mix". And it makes the earlier songs which weren't up to par much more valuable as a piece of a puzzle. Records/CDs are not going anywhere. People who only buy mp3s do not appreciate music with the same ears that we CD purchasers who want the non-degradable, tangible and fully uncompressed versions of these recordings will always exist because a CD comes with artwork, and a CD is tangible to be practical about it. Corgan (one of my great musical heroes), is wrong about this, in my opinion, and I'm glad he's come to his senses and decided to release the rest of the mega-album in 2 or 3 albums-within-albums. All that said, I'm sure the end product will be worth the wait. Pisces Iscariot ReIssue coming out on July 17th with a BOATLOAD of bonus material. Can't wait to hear that album remastered. If any one of their albums ever needed to be remastered, it's "Pisces Iscariot".

Mr. Corgan your fans want albums, not a $50 collection of four tracks that, yes, you have made available for free on the internet, but in poor quality mp3s. If you want the real thing, you must shell out the big bucks for 4 tracks. I'm glad that idea is over now. "Oceania" rules.
