Smashing Pumpkins Reissuing Classic Albums

| Filed under: Music Minute

Billy Corgan for sale

A.K.A. every album they've already released! Ha!

The popular 90's alternative-rock band Smashing Pumpkins is kicking off a three-year program this fall by releasing expanded versions of their breakthrough album Siamese Dream, followed by Gish, and Pisces Iscariot.

Sound familiar? Go check your CD collection because you probably already have them, BUT in case you missed the grunge era, this is a great chance to catch up on your rock history!

The band's frontman and only original member, Billy Corgan, made the announcement with EMI Music on Tuesday.

In what he calls a "groundbreaking deal", Corgan says the band will have full control of the unreleased materials, explaining:

"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."

Good for them! It's nice to see the musicians holding the power instead of the record company.

Next year, Corgan will reissue the 1995 double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, the 5-disc boxed set The Aeroplane Flies High, and Adore.

Could this be the beginning of the return of 90's rock? Will Alanis Morissette follow, with Chumbawumba not far behind? Ha!

Are U excited to hear that the Smashing Pumpkins will reissue the old albums?

    Their Breakthrough Hit Album is Gish. It's their first and the first that will be released in order of their albums. Can't post anything wrong about the best band of the 90's. Please post their new song "Owata" coming out for FREE next week on smashingpumpkins.com. Sweet ass song…

    Thaaank god they are rereleasing the aero plane flies high!!! I've bought it twice now at full price and keep losing 1979 and scratching bullet with butterfly wings. I cant wait to hear anything new from that set!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  3. 3

    I wonder if they are going to remaster the albums? That would be really sweet especially for mellon collie. pumpkins rule!

    Ugh. I can hear Corgan ego swelling to gianormous proportions. I might buy Corgan and Love's sex tape but I will pass on the music.

    Maybe we should go back to the 80's. Oh, I forgot Gaga has been doing that the last couple of years. At least Billy's not crying and telling everyone he feels like a loser when he wakes up every morning.

    I used to be a Pumpkins fan when they first came out, but now I can't even stomach a single song after I met Billy Corgan. I can"t stand this Uncle Fester prick! He was the biggest douche bag of life! There he was with fans lining to meet him while he sulks and acts over it all. I'll never forget what an A-hole he was! You suck Corgan!
