For some weird reason, we thought Billy Corgan was dead. Maybe because in our mind we associated pumpkins with melons, and Shannon Hoon of Blind Melon died in 1995, so… yeah.
Billy Corgan is indeed alive and well, and rockin’ with Smashing Pumpkins—again. We can’t believe it’s been 18 years since the “founding members” were last together making music. So we’re pumped about their new album, Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1/LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun. due on 11/16. (Thank you for the extra-long album title...)
Check out the video for “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)”. Props for casting 90s famewhore Mark McGrath, by the way.
Haus of V is a creative collective that shares a similar mindset -- with a twist.
