View Full Version : When the Pumpkins were broken up from 2000-2006, didn't it feel like forever?

And now they've been back together longer than they were broken up and I wish they never got back together because it was such a letdown. :(

it is weird that they have now been "back together" longer than they were broken up.

it's also weird that it has been longer since they broke up than the span of the original run of the band

so when are we going to start saying "when billy corgan went on hiatus" unstead of "the smashing pumpkins broke up"

it's slightly depressing to think about the decline of billy's output ever since he and darcy parted ways. i mean, machina is still enjoyable but it's a veritable shitheap compared to the arising shows.

in fact, that was probably the turning point where songs started getting much much worse after being brought to a studio.

Melissa was a great stand in, but after 2000, it died, and it's been dead since.

I have a feeling rebree would tell you to see the use of quotation marks.


Anyway, it's weird that years go by.

it's less about the pumpkins and more about corgan's descent into insanity

early zwan was incredible - MCIS levels of quality. then the record came out and it was kinda bad, but not terrible.

then it just got worse and worse. jeff. mike. etc etc

Can somebody show me some incredible early Zwan so I don't have to spend minutes of my life searching for it?

The name was so disappointing and the first single was so downright embarrassing I never looked any further.

I tried listening to the album but the production had this kind of repellant effect on my ears

Only Zwan I've heard that I've liked is the Hideout Sessions. Maybe one or two tracks on Mary Star of the Sea, but I've listened to it maybe twice in my life because it just isn't worth revisiting.

I have no idea what the timeline of the band is, so I don't know what's the "early stuff" or what order shit was released in. I'm an untroo fan.

How do you get the guitarist from Slint and another guy from some math-rock and punk groups to end up playing boring Christian rock?

I mean, I can only speak for myself here, but I discovered them in 1994 and only joined up in 2015 (or 2016?).

I joined because I always enjoyed lurking whenever I'd stop by. I don't care that there's hardly anyone here, I enjoy the personalities.

I'd be willing to bet Billy hasn't made a new fan in over 10 years.

FlamingGlobes
05-02-2018, 06:22 PM
That is to say, a new fan based off of anything he was doing at the time, and not based on the strengths of his past work.
