Reckon the pitchfork review of the reissue will give machina at least an 8.8. It will be begrudging, but they won’t be able to deny the sheer holistic achievement of the album closer to its original vision
‘Hi, Billy Corgan, The Smashing Pumpkins’
‘Homer Simpson, The Smiling Politely’
I am listening to a Jeff Tweedy song that sounds like The Smashing Pumpkins classic Soma.
I’m listening to Meloncollie, just about to get to Muzzle.
Surprised you only listened to Mellon Collie the once this year
Christmas song on the radio just now that I’ve never heard before
I am loving that this is a Pumpkins/Everclear mash-up
Got a lot of time for that album
Put Siamese dream on at the bar, don’t tell the boss!
I got inspired because I had Protomartyr on before and a lassie asked if it was Smashing Pumpkins
BC: I would sell my soul for the ability to write decent lyrics and interesting songs again!
SATAN : actually I don’t want your soul, it’s a bit grubby. I’ll grant your wish for the price of lowering your voice an octave or two and giving you a five note range.
And thus “Relatives in Descent” was born!

I am listening to Siamese Dream for the first time in a long time.
Silverfuck is still the most massive sounding thing ever recorded. That section after the first verse/chorus is absolutely ridiculous and one of the ultimate “no one does it like Billy” data points. It’s systematic destruction.
I love watching him play it live:
I am listening to the Smashing Pumpkins
DESPITE ALL MY RAGE I’M STILL JUST A RAT IN A CAAAAGE
