Album of the week

SmashingPumpkins-Adore.jpg Adore by The Smashing Pumpkins was considered "one of the most anticipated albums of 1998". Recording proved to be a challenge as the band struggled with both personal and interpersonal problems and the departure of Jimmy Chamberlin. While the resulting electronic sound divided some fans, it gained an immense cult following and was praised by critics. Adore went Platinum in the US and 2× Platinum in Canada. It was the band's third straight album to be nominated for a Grammy, peaking at #1 in five countries and #2 on the Billboard 200. A remastered and expanded version of the album was released in September 2014.

Song of the day

"Drum + Fife" is the third single from The Smashing Pumpkins' ninth studio album Monuments to an Elegy. The track was premiered through NME on November 21, 2014. Corgan had originally written it as a folk song, but drummer Tommy Lee helped shift it into rock territory. The song was well-received by critics, with Consequence of Sound describing it as "a melodic, yet rallying rocker", and Corgan's vocals as "tenacious".

Did you know...

  • ...that a live recording of the first show as a full band was given away for free at the last show (pre-2007), both at the same venue?
  • ...that Gish was named after silent film icon Lillian Gish? In an interview, Corgan said his grandmother told him "one of the biggest things that ever happened was when Lillian Gish rode through town on a train".
  • ...that former drummer Mike Byrne played in a band called The Mercury Tree, which is the name of an old version of "The Crying Tree of Mercury"?
  • ...that months prior to Zeitgeist's release, two thieves broke into the band's rehearsal space, stole photographs of the album booklet artwork and leaked them online? They were arrested by Chicago Police and charged with felony burglary.
  • ...that the Siamese Dream booklet was supposed to be by an outsider artist, but after disagreements with the label, Corgan was forced to step in at the last minute? On the day after their wedding, he and his wife scrambled to put something together, using photos of strangers and Corgan's family with lyrics handwritten on top.
