"lets re-release a flop of an album that nobody even cared about at the time". Brilliant marketing strategy!

If there was any chance of Machina being re-released, it would've happened during the stretch of the rest of the releases. Virgin obviously didn't see the point of doing a release for Machina and that probably speaks as to how well TAFH and Adore sold... My guess is not very well!

The Machina reissue will happen in the next couple of years.

It might be worthwhile for Bill to put out the Greatest Hits first to refresh the audience.

I forgot we will get the Zwan box set then. Thatís what Iím looking forward to the most.

Iím confident we will get both... eventually.

a seller on Discogs is selling the Machina LP sleeve without the LP's or 10 dollars. as I don't really care for the album but always liked the artwork I was considering it but probably won't cause I'd look at it once and put it on the shelve

hey i know you're reading this billy; fuck you. put out the full SBD of brixton 96 or the last show at Metro. I'd pay a lot. Lots of us nerds would pay a lot.

The fact of the matter is that hardly anyone liked Machina when it first came out so why in the world would Virgin Records spend time and resources to reissue it 20 years later? Maybe if Smashing Pumpkins didn't release like 6 albums since, they perhaps could've marketed it as "THE FINAL ALBUM BY THE SMASHING PUMPKINS...REMASTERED". But at this point, it's just another random crappy album who nobody cares about down the ole memory hole.

So looking at it from a risk/reward standpoint, why would a major label bother? To maybe hope that enough diehads buy it in order to make a few bucks? There's no ceiling there, so why would they waste their time?

Think about it

I would only purchase it if the seller could prove that they had already done my work for me and destroyed the actual records

Machina sleeve said copyright 2000 Virgin Records America, Inc. and The Smashing Pumpkins. It was already negotiated. I'm pretty sure it's all billy's by now.

What's sadder though, waiting on the reissue, posting on this deadass board in the year 2020, or both?


Y'all need to move on with your lives or get on medication.

Alex. Move on. You've got a wife and a good job, right? Why are you wasting your time on this? What a fucking riot. Me, shit, I've got nothing. I would give anything to burn this place to the ground if I could.

Most of you don't know this but Netphoria is being used as a way to communicate with Russian spies. That's why Pakula keeps the board alive. Thedeadofnight just gave the go ahead for an assassination.

More plausible than people using a Smashing Pumpkins forum in 2020 cos they’re fans of the band.
