This is not newsworthy but found the whole thing interesting enough for me to create an account just to post it.

Back in February - in a Spanish-language SP board - a poster that claimed to be Jesse, Ginger's brother (anyone here care to verify that relationship?), sorta leaked the news that she was the new bass player a full 3 months before the band made it official. See the thread at:

http://smashingpumpkins.com.ar/board/viewtopic.php?id=5102&p=2

(The guy's usename is machismo10)

For those who dont know Spanish, the guy is bragging about his sister being the new bassist, and as proof, he goes on to reveal his sister's initials as GR, and that the new guitarist's name starts with J.

He goes on to say that he's only posting in that Spanish site (and say, not Netphoria) because he wanted only Latinos to know about it to feel proud and stuff (Ginger's a 1st generation Mexican-Peruvian).

Amazing that the gossip didnt spread onto here right away. If I was Ginger I'd kick this guy in the nuts just for having jeopardized her new gig like that.

Yeah, I personally wouldnt have made a big deal out of the whole 'pride' thing - most of us Latino SP fans don't really care (Im Peruvian).

He also knows that if he had leaked this in a more mainstream forum it would have spread like fire.

And even if he had posted this on more mainstream boards they still wouldn't have believed him.

I read that thread back in February. There was no way to tell the guy was legit. He did seem to be bragging though, so even when things got cleared up people weren't very impressed or anything. The guy doesn't speak very good Spanish BTW.

And you guys at the SP.com.ar board are fucking idiots.

I'm in that forum and the info is totally right, we didn't believe him, some people yes but the most not, it was too rare for us living in South America and having this news too much time before you guys and that's because I Particularly thinked it was fake.
A BIG THANKS TO JESSE FOR THAT INFO if he is reading this.

I tried to translate for everyone.. I’m think it’s fairly accurate..but it’s sometimes hard to put other languages into english..well, for me it is anyway..but here’s the gist of it..


machismo10:post 1
Hello, I know that youare not going to believe but my sister called me yesterday and she said to me that she is going to be new bass guitarist of Smashing Pumpkins. I am not going to say her name to you but initials are GR.. We were born in Chicago but we lived in California. It has been practicing with them from August and they offered the work yesterday. Our mother is from Peru Lima and our father is Mexican who has family of 3 generations here (the U.S.A.), we know spanish but not perfect. I am not a fan of Smashing Pumpkins,it is not my type of music. I like the Westcoast rap of Califonia.I only want to say this to you because I have pride to be Latin and wanted tell you that the Smashing Pumpkins are going to have a Latin in the group. You are the first to know this but soon many people will know.

Comment after laughed, etc.....

machismo10:post 2
I am not lying. The her name begins with G. She practices all along with Jimmy and Billy. And also there is new guitarist. This infomacion is exclusive! Nobody knows it

More comments..

machismo10:post 3
Wow Arminius with all your posts i’d think that you are big fan. Are there many fans of Smashing Pumpkins in Peru? And so that all know Billy has hair. I want to give a link of the page for my sister but first I am going it to ask if this ok with her. I am well proud of her. She this touching base in about ______(<-soon?n/s). Soon all of you are going to know of her.

More comments..im sort of skimming..someone says something about billy having hair, b/c they seen the pics of him and courtney love from Jan. at some event..blah blah blah... Oh..wait..netphoria is mentioned..

machismo10:post 5
No. I do not want to go to Netphoria because if I say to something there, everybody is going to know. And I do not want to put my sister in danger of losing her new position with the group. And also I came here because i wanted to say this information to latin fans. "haters" are many in this message board. But I knew that many were going to doubt. Remember please that the name of my sister begins with G. When they announce the new members are going to see that I am telling the truth.

machismo10:post 6
Hello all, Ok the last week my dad had surgery on his abdomen to fix a hernia from a tapeworm. I saw to my sister and we were together almost all the day and we spoke much of the group. She said it’s exciting to be in the group she said to me that she goes away to move to Chicago the 1 of April. Then they are going to practice for tour that is going to happen in Europe. She said that after there is going to be a Tour in the U.S.A. in the fall. She does not know if they are going to go to Latin America. I asked if I could put her link up and she said no. She prefers to let Billy announce the new group when he wants. My sister has been in groups of Punk, a punk group who were all girls. A DES their songs were in a Soundtrack of one pelicula and also this in the DVD of that pelicula. Besides the group she also went "single" and the music was in programs like "Real World" of MTV and other programs of MTV. It said to another one noticaias to me that he is a little chistosos. She said to me that also there is another new guitarista and it is Koreano/Americano. Its name begins with J. Then they are going to have another Chinese in the group. (___________???). Not much of the Smashing Pumpkins but before they had a girl bass guitarist and a Chinese guitarista. Hope that all this good with you.

Ok..some parts are a bit screwed up..if anyone see mistakes please let me know and I will fix...just want to give the gist of it to those who don’t understand spanish..

Cool! It took only 10 months for someone to put all this together. By the way the translation pretty much sucked. Doesn't really matter because the SP band members don't read all the stupid bullshit on this website anyways. In fact Billy has advised everyone to not even peek onto this board because of the negative and nasty things that are said here. And I agree I've read lots of bs from all you haters out there. My sister doesn't even want me tell her about what I read on here, she says she would just rather not know. I also don't like to read negative things about my lil sis because there's not much I can do, but would love to bitch slap a bunch of you.

I told Ginger that I was dropping little hints on the Spanish board when she got the job. She wasn't too thrilled but asked me not to say too much, so I didn't. She actually had been auditioning since Septemeber of 06. They auditoned lots of bass players in that time, even famous ones. Ginger is a great bass player with tons of experience and deserves her position. I definitely was not going to say damn thing on this board as I would have been flamed to high hell. Shit I'll prob be flamed anyway.

By the way I'm not a fan of SP although they are growing on me. I hated them in the 90's I'm all about Hip-Hop, Rap, and Reggaeton.

Hmmm.... Maybe I can use this board to my advantage. Any hot chicks want to hang out with Ginger's brother? Our good looks run in our family. I could even get you backstage VIP when they come to your town if I go with you. I doubt there are hot chicks on here though. If your interested PM me. Peace Bitches!

Dude, that is cool your sis is the bassist to the Pumpkins. And yes netphoria is full of hate, but there are a few good ones out there. Seriously though, if you ever talk to her and this site gets mentioned or whatever, tell her she's doing an amazing job. I saw her twice and she was phenominal.

Hey everyone thanks for being cool. I have seen lots of compliments about Ginger on this board before and criticism as well, which is fine but its when people get meanspirited and and say nasty things when it starts getting un-cool. I know I wouldn't want to read that stuff about myself. This is the "Interwebs" after all and not much can be done.

I should be seeing my sister in the next couple of days and I will let her know that she has fans and is liked by most.

Hey Cardiac I hear there are some hot gringas in Finland. Maybe I should take trip when SP plays out there and you can introduce me to few. As for inside info, I have plenty but you have to understand it's "classified". I would hate to get Ginger in trouble and really don't want her pissed at me.

and that she seems to be the odd one out in the band. and has the least exposure. no ones really sure if she's even "in" the band. and if she is, why hasn't corgan and chamberlin included them in press photos and the recording studio.

yeah man, don't worry, someone's always gonna talk shit (especially here). But I as well as a lot of other people think she has great skill and does fit in nicely to the new mix. Send her our regards!

i can see ginger coming here thinkin she'll get showered with praise and netphoria makes her cry in the fetal position. corgan hovering over her, "dude i told you not to post there"

...and no ones really sure if she's even "in" the band. and if she is, why hasn't corgan and chamberlin included them in press photos and the recording studio.

According to Ginger in that bass player magazine article, she doesn't know either.

i don't mind explaining it. although not only could homeboy use the boards search, but probably could look it up on MTV.com and pitchfork, if they keep archives. spin and rollingstone did an online article too.

Im a homegirl.. I did look on pitchfork..it was brief.. I knew about the photos being stolen, but I didn't know the person who stole them leaked them on here.. I am in the process of reading that thread, it explains a bit.. thank you though I appreciate it..

Cool! It took only 10 months for someone to put all this together. By the way the translation pretty much sucked. Doesn't really matter because the SP band members don't read all the stupid bullshit on this website anyways. In fact Billy has advised everyone to not even peek onto this board because of the negative and nasty things that are said here. And I agree I've read lots of bs from all you haters out there. My sister doesn't even want me tell her about what I read on here, she says she would just rather not know. I also don't like to read negative things about my lil sis because there's not much I can do, but would love to bitch slap a bunch of you.

I told Ginger that I was dropping little hints on the Spanish board when she got the job. She wasn't too thrilled but asked me not to say too much, so I didn't. She actually had been auditioning since Septemeber of 06. They auditoned lots of bass players in that time, even famous ones. Ginger is a great bass player with tons of experience and deserves her position. I definitely was not going to say damn thing on this board as I would have been flamed to high hell. Shit I'll prob be flamed anyway.

By the way I'm not a fan of SP although they are growing on me. I hated them in the 90's I'm all about Hip-Hop, Rap, and Reggaeton.

Hmmm.... Maybe I can use this board to my advantage. Any hot chicks want to hang out with Ginger's brother? Our good looks run in our family. I could even get you backstage VIP when they come to your town if I go with you. I doubt there are hot chicks on here though. If your interested PM me. Peace Bitches!

"I tried to translate for everyone.. I’m think it’s fairly accurate..but it’s sometimes hard to put other languages into english..well, for me it is anyway..but here’s the gist of"

I said the translation was a bit off..but it is fairly accurate..considering I am not spanish.. and you have to admit your spanish is a bit off as well...

I am also pretty sure nobody here has had many negative things to say about your sister either, we all like her! .. Aside from the random preverted comments here and there... but that is to be expected. I for one have never said anything bad about your sister, I think she is great. Usually people only say negative things about Billy and alot of the times it's just joking.. he should be able to laugh at himself..

Yeah, until she starts doing half the crazy, confusing stuff Billy does I'm pretty sure she's safe from the bulk of netphoria's mock disgust.

Hey Cardiac I hear there are some hot gringas in Finland. Maybe I should take trip when SP plays out there and you can introduce me to few. As for inside info, I have plenty but you have to understand it's "classified". I would hate to get Ginger in trouble and really don't want her pissed at me.

Yea, understandable. It's common knowledge that ol' Bill has a secret or two in his striped sleeves so I saw this one coming. Just thought I'd give it a shot in case you were posting drunk (happens more often then you'd think. at least here) d:]

If you look like a man-ified version of your sister, you won't be needin' my assistance to meet those "gringas" here, man :smoke:

ok homegirl, you got a sick avatar. not too effeminate. anyway as i remember it, cain walker (i believe) was at the music garage in chicago with his band and heard the pumpkins were practicing there, renting out an entire floor for themselves. another guy said he had some spaced booked there too and would let us know if he heard or found anything. at this point we were just looking for confirmation of the new bandmates.

either caine or other dude took a pic with their cell phone of a dressing room door and it revealed ginger and jeff's names.

then other dude got greedy and stole some photos and came back here and described them to us. he said he had about 4 or 5 and after being badgered to no end by the board he finally posted them. i remember after he did so, i posted "is this legal?" and someone, i think fritters said "probably not". i laughed.

30 mins later frank quinto made a post in regards that this was completely illegal and that the picture thief was going to be charged. the band didn't take it lightly and was pretty bothered by a fan stealing unreleased album artwork.

and as it turned out, guy stole 39 photo's in actuality, guitar pics and who knows what else. got house arrest and probation and we all enjoyed the shit out of it.

pakula was contacted by the band's management and they gave him some zeitgeist promo shit as a "we're cool with you, no hard feelings" kind of thing, and he gave them away in a contest.

that dude got house arrest and probation and we got stickers. it was pretty awesome. he's bitter as hell too. when he came back to the board we all asked him what version of zeitgeist he bought lol and the dude said something to the effect of "the one on oink, or mediafire". :dammit: have you learned nothing kid?! :noway:

Thank you, thank you, and thank you! =) That's kind of scummy to steal shit.. whatever... It's pretty lame that the whole thing got associated with this board.. no matter what Pakula says about "bridges opening" I am sure the band is even less fond of this board than they were... Thank you for explaining that to me.. I appreciate it!

That's funny man. I used to get offended about things said about my cousin (l.Strawberry) but as time wore on and she has gotten more ridiculous, I felt less prone to stick up for her and then people started to not care and lay off a bit.

It's just Netphoria-- you have to roll with it. It's like Chinese handcuffs- the more you fight, the more you get flamed. I think if I was Billy I could read here and not ever get offended because I'd realize there's only about 3 true assholes with nothing good to say ever and the rest are jaded yet objective with the exception of about 6 upbeat females and the knob gobbler Corgan Rulez, whom I'm certain is a reverse troll.

Anyway, feel free to post here more regularly so we can make fun of you for liking Reggaeton!!:)

A. Verbalize themselves well (especially on the Internet)
B. Have an avatar that makes fun of the name/word usage of machismo
C. doesn't like SP, but hounds their forums (well at least this one)
D. Know how to use the computer well enough to have an avatar
E. Deal with netphoria and their obtrusive ads and NOT be a SP fan.

I love how the same people who talk shit about the band were so quick to kiss this guy's ass because of what he may tell "his sister".

Ginger's brother or not, he's seems pretty funny. If my sis were in a band that used to attract hot chicks in the late 90s, I'd be trying to score tour stop hookups like a motherfucker. Unfortunately for him, most of the people post here say they hate Billy but secretly wanna get to know him a little better. And they're dudes...
