Billy Corgan's Naked Shapeshifter


#981

Smashing Pumpkins absolutely could not have existed without Queen.


#982

true.


#983

that’s… actually probably true. I know Billy is a massive Cheap Trick mark (see chorus of ‘Cherub Rock’) so it’s definitely within his wheelhouse


#984

JAMC > Joy Division > BRMC > Interpol


#985

Vines >>> Nirvana


#986

lol, not touching that one.


#987

Probably the coolest take of the lot in here TBF


#988

you should see what colour I’ve turned from it.


#989

Or maybe they would be better


#990

A pretty hot take, that.

Anthology was screened in 95 and was a Big Deal. New singles Free As A Bird and Real Love came out in 95 and 96. Oasis spaffed about them in every interview and the was a broader connection with 60s groups and Britpop. “1” came out in 2000. The Beatles were riding high in the late 90s.


#991

Impossible!


#992

My Dad is Dead>>>>>Joy Division>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Interpol


#993

I would like to live in the timeline where none of their influences existed so I could experience them in their most singular form


#994

enjoying this “alternate universe” strand that’s running through this beautiful thread


#995

I think it stops being art then, but sure


#996

I see what you mean but as a (young) teenager in the 90s the 60s/70s seemed utterly incomprehensible. Might as well been a different planet.

The 80s, you could just about figure out and I got into that culture more than 90s, but 60s and 70s are still a bit of a headfuck for me as it seems so unfathomable.


#997

To me they were always in the same category as the monkees or the wombles


#998

The Wiggles were more pioneering and original than every single artist published in the NME after 2002.


#999

Wombles>beatles
:grin:
