SPCodex is a central resource for all knowledge surrounding The Smashing Pumpkins and related acts. It is written and moderated entirely by fans like you.

Backstory

In late March 2020, Billy Corgan wrote in an Instragram story that he was looking to create a "database" of sorts that documents all material. SPCodex founder MusikAnimal messaged Billy and proposed creating a wiki. Corgan expressed fondness of the idea, and SPCodex was born. Although no formal arrangement was made, we are pleased with what we've built and hope it will meet the band's expectations as an accurate, fan-driven resource for all to enjoy.
