a couple of videos appeared online of billy in the studio recording superchrist:

the woman who posted them is a violinist named ysanne spevack, i looked her up and there's some stuff on her website about working with SP, as well as a mention of a possible tour with billy + sky saxon in "spring 2008". don't see how that's possible since SP are touring in spring 2008 but eh, i thought it was worth a mention.

here's a screencap of her website:

she'll just be another hired hand in the pumpkins

cat fight between her and lisa

that would be awesome if they added her. As much as I like the current lineup a good violinist would adda a lot.

Or, more likely.... Sky Saxon to tour with The Smashing Pumpkins. Violinist Ysanne Spevack to guest with both bands.

Hopefully some strings will make Superchrist at least remotely interesting.

sounds promising, at least

all in favor of using the violinist to record a new version of rotten apples:

Who the hell is Sky Saxon :confused:

Is this someone we're supposed to know?

I feel so ignorant and lost. :(

In the 2nd video it looks like BC is growin' out the 'do, but it could just be shadows.

hey guys, remember all this stuff from back in the summer?

Finally, Superchrist surfaces. They're starting to show some some signs hope of for the home stretch.

"surfaces"? Was there any info about this song previously? It wasn't on the whiteboard (which we still haven't seen "F# Stomp" and maybe something else I'm forgetting).

Yes. Though maybe it wasn't as widely known as I had thought. :-x

I have some info from the band for you guys :
- Billy wrote Superchrist this morning

um i am with frenchy.. this song was written just recently.

Gaddrow just wants people to think he's important or has inside info.

thanks monte.

ok, Gaddrow's full of shit then....

Gaddrow you fucking idiot. kill yourself NOW.

Don't be so quick to hate on Gaddrow...he's know about it for months because he, in fact, is Billy, and he's been waiting to write a heavy new song called Superchrist for months. It was last morning that he finally did it. Hope that clairfies.

Yes, I'm full of shit. I only said that to make myself sound cool. Billy totally wrote Superchrist this week. Right, right.

good times

good times Yeah, good times indeed. I think it's pretty cool how the two people on this board who knew my comments to be true kept their mouths shut, so as to allow me to look like a douche, but I understand their reasoning.
