Original Smashing Pumpkins bassist D’arcy Wretzky shared the following photo a few weeks ago on Facebook with the caption: “… but this one is the CREEPIEST EVER !!!!!” She posted a link to a Eddie Murphy YouTube video few days ago: “Eddie Murphy – Drinking fathers – YouTube. it’s that time again folks! We need ta lighten up a little!” Wretzky rarely posts on social media.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman William Patrick Corgan performed “I Fall” at Madame ZuZu’s Teahouse yesterday for the first time since 1988. Watch below, and listen to the original versions.
Smashing Pumpkins frontman William Patrick Corgan will release a new Rick Rubin produced solo album titled Ogilala on October 13th.
Corgan said, “For as long as I can remember the delineation point between songs I wrote for myself and songs I’d pen for whatever band was something I couldn’t explain. And it remains so, for they all feel quite personal to me, no matter their time orera. The lone difference on songs for Ogilala is that they seemed to want little in the way of adornment.
Having written the songs for voice and guitar, I put myself in Rick’s hands to take the music wherever he’d like. Normally I would have done more, and tinkered more on production, but rather Rick put the onus on me to deliver at a molecular level via live takes. The rest was simply a reaction.”
Listen to lead single “Aeronaut” below. Corgan’s son Augustus Juppiter is on the album’s cover along with his girlfriend Chloe Mendel.
