I work at Guitar Center and they have a program for employees called "Gain". Its designed to help their employees further their music careers. They are putting out a compilation CD right now of Guitar Center employee's bands. They are working on a second compilation and I just got this in an email from Gain:


"Fresh Tracks Vol. 2
It’s official! It is my pleasure to announce that the Smashing Pumpkins will be writing and recording a track exclusively for the second volume of the Fresh Tracks GAIN compilation CD. The Smashing Pumpkins will also be choosing the songs that will go on the CD. The submission period is NOW. You have until January 10th to submit a song. Go to the website and click on the GAIN #2 picture to get to the submission page. Good luck!"



The first compilation is just coming out now, so I don't know when the second one will be hitting stores.

That's awesome! Everyone on Netphoria will pretend to hate it to be cool while secretly listening to it with headphones in the closet like they do with everything post Adore, but we know deep down they will like it.

It looks like the Pumpkins are going to be as prolific as ever (or more so!). When I learned that Zeitgeist was going to be only twelve tracks I was a bit worried.

So, how's that LSD working out for you?

The first compilation is only guitar center bands and is free and available at your local guitar center. It might not be out quite yet but it will be very soon. The second one is going to be guitar center bands (that are picked by the pumpkins) and an exclusive track. My guess is that one will be free too.

Cool -- maybe they'll make really good use of guitars on it.

How long has the first compilation been in the works? I'm trying to get an idea of how long the new one will take. But if you have to submit your songs by Jan. 10, sounds like it wont be too long from now.

let's hope the new track is an instrumental. ascendo was way cool.

So you think they are going to use Gossamer on a free cd? Maybe you're right, but I doubt it..

i don't really think they're going to use Gossamer on any CD but fuck what difference does freeness make, shit, really, damn, christ, damn.

10 Bucks on Superchrist.


Either that or a live version of some past hit. I.E.: Cherub Rock, Zero, Bullet, etc...

Wouldn't mind a nice studio Superchrist. I thought their AOL sessions one was a hit. However I also wouldn't mind some 99 Floors either.

Everyone should be delighted to know that the band is in the studio right now recording the much anticipated Superchrist!

In other news, Billy has been in the studio with 'Sky Saxon and the Seeds'. Billy and producer Kerry Brown have been "recording some stuff for Sky...(writing) a couple songs with Sky, etc..."

Please update on whether this will be free, and how many copies I can take?

We need some thread merging, but I heard it is not coming out until Tuesday 3/11 now. Also, yes it is free based on what I read.

From San Antonio Pumpkins Fans MySpace

Superchrist" CD - March 11. Only 50,000 CDs made
For anyone who was hoping to get ahold of "Superchrist" this weekend, looks like we've got another week and a half before the release of this CD, which I believe might be complimentary. The CD is called Fresh Cuts Vol. 2. at Guitar Center.
With over 200 stores, that's around 250 per store.

here's the source for the March 11 release date
