Smashing Pumpkins Reissues

Even though I think Billy Corgan is a big douche, I thought I should still post the recent news.  Smashing Pumpkins are reissuing their early albums over a three year period.  This fall they will release 1993’s “Siamese Dream” and “Gish” then next year it will be the double album “Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness”, “The Aeroplane Flies High” then “Adore”.  In 2013 it will be “Machina/The Machines of God” and “Machina II: The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music.  Corgan said about the deal:

“What makes the deal with EMI groundbreaking is the band has secured the right to all unreleased materials and will be in charge of any additional releases based on our discretion.  In essence, the band has the keys to the warehouse and can release whatever we want, when we want it.”
