Billy Corgan is keeping busy during the pandemic, with Smashing Pumpkins releasing a new album called CYR next week. He also just wrote on social media, as transcribed by Alternative Nation, “I need your help with something…Out of nowhere I’m getting lots of messages about a Machina reissue on vinyl. There is NO reissue. This is a bootleg and like many recent bootlegs, designed to look real and take advantage of retail portals that will look the other way and sell them as ‘authentic.’
So please help us flag these products as they not only harm fans but they muddy the waters for legitimate efforts on our part to bring you the best we have to offer. I’ve worked on the pending Machina reissue for YEARS.
And yes, Universal, the parent company for Machina, has been notified. But the best pressure comes from you to help call out retailers who keep listing these products as ‘legitimate’ and thereby ripping off fans.” Billy Corgan recently dropped a Dave Grohl and Alice In Chains bombshell.
