Billy Corgan's Naked Shapeshifter


#2181

Bands that are better than slint: rodan, June of 44, shipping news, Indian summer


#2182

Obviously not an exhaustive list


#2183

In the category of being a reference to use for scoring indie points, yes.


#2184

So not the Smashing Pumpkins, glad we’ve settled that.

(Seriously though, thanks for the names, I think I’ve only heard June of 44 off that list).


#2185

The slint like bands that are better than slint tangent thread


#2186

Forgot codeine


#2187

Though i kinda get your point I wouldn’t categorise skint as emo like these bands


#2188

out of those probably only indian summer are emo?


#2189

Saint Billy (<-this is a joke)


#2190

reckon d’arcy should join pavement


#2191

Given emo seems to have 3 waves and they are all different who knows?


#2192

yeah but I don’t think any of those bands, except indian summer, would fit into any wave of emo


#2193

Full blown yes, but they all have elements of it


#2194

“God, what a mess/ On the ladder of success”

One of the great opening lines.


#2195

Out on tour with one quarter of the core nineties line up of Smashing Pumpkins


#2196

Yeah, its a banger. Love the ending & the fucked SNL performance


#2197

Today in smashing pumpkins history debut album Gish was released on this day in 1991


#2198

I am twenty-seven as you are twenty-nine


#2199

Can’t believe it’s been Gish month for 19 years.


#2200

Just want to say the new Stephen Malkmus is actually pretty good, I think I might like it more than all post-Crooked Rain Crooked Rain Pavement (not sure yet). The Future Embrace and Ogilala are better though. I still think that if Billy released it, it would be called total shit.
