What's happening in Los Angeles?
 
So, Billy was in Taos - then posted about Barstow and Route 66 talk - then he's in LA with his "Rock Guitars" as seen here:

Then, Vic Salazar (a name I didn't know - but dude used to/does run a drum shop in Chicago) posts this:

No APC tour dates at this time.

Michigan is DAMN cold right now: and I bet the farm is quiet.

SP is probably cutting an album with Rick Rubin. Billy said working with him on Ogilala made him more open than he has been in many years to working with other people in the production and recording department

Glad to see my rock and roll guitars have arrived in LA

And JIMMY did some arrangements a few days ago.


redbreegull 01-04-2018 03:13 AM

holy shit is that cat related to kylo ren

Corgan's Bluff 01-04-2018 04:39 AM

That cat is related to Willie Boy WILLIAM PATRICK CORGAN.

Corgan's Bluff 01-04-2018 04:47 AM

Could also be JIMMY playing drums on BILLY's next solo record.

But VIC's hashtag "ToTheRescue" sounds more promising...
And: does BILLY play a pink bass guitar?;)

Forgotten Child 01-04-2018 05:11 AM

Vic deleted that post about Jimmy. Sign?

It think it's red :think:

But there IS a black Les Paul on the rack. And I've never seen a Thunderbird bass be used in SP.

Corgan's Bluff 01-04-2018 06:07 AM

The body is pink. The headstock seems to be darker, more flesh-colored on the upper side.

I think it's a fender ��
Edit: oh, you're talking about the bass next to the cherry/red one.


Forgotten Child 01-04-2018 06:27 AM

Also, isn't Butch Vig home studio in Silver lake, LA?

Corgan's Bluff 01-04-2018 06:55 AM

BILLY CORGAN's red YAMAHA BB-300 from 1988.


Ram27 01-04-2018 06:58 AM

Certainly sounds like it's going down

None of those guitars look like BC staples. The 3 basses make it seem like he's recording something

So Jimbo's current rack tom setup is 14-10-12

___________

I am fucking excited

Ram27 01-04-2018 06:59 AM

"a very special upcoming occasion" in LA

Wish they'd reunite in Chicago tbh

that's two BC signature reverend guitars and the fender signature strat.
in 2017/18 they're staples of his modern sound... don't be expecting SD2.

is it just me or does the 2nd reverend guitar further back have a shorter neck? the bodies line up but not the headstocks. it even looks shorter than the gibson behind it.

MplsTaper 01-04-2018 10:12 AM

Getting on a plane to Los Angeles in 2 hours.

Shadaloo 01-04-2018 11:09 AM

And APC aren't touring again until June.

Well, if I wasn't firmly erect before I certainly am now.

They are playing Coachella in April and a few other gigs in April and May:

Mid-april, that's still a good three months or so of silence where James is off the radar.

Insight_Scoop 01-04-2018 03:56 PM

One of the pics in this set looks like a rehearsal space. Three mics. Possibly in LA?

That was for the secret gig in Taos a few days ago.

yessssssssssssssssssss jimmyyyyyyyyyyy

Wonder how long til we see the other 2... or if.

paranoid 01-04-2018 07:31 PM

that ... at the end of that statement seems ominous.. SHOW US DARCY

Grox 01-04-2018 09:00 PM

oh hell yeah, they're recording. def not for the new solo record, he wouldn't bring out all that rock gear for that. the pumpkins are back

Ram27 01-04-2018 09:12 PM

we are back my dudes

It is going down. Jimbo has his Pumpkins tom setup, Corgan has a Big Muff....this might be a good record

Shadaloo 01-04-2018 09:31 PM

The Big Muff is the weirdest part of this to me. You can show me James and D'Arcy in the room with them of course and I'll be really happy and all, but I'm baffled about how BC would approach recording with a Big Muff in 2018.
