Has Billy ever played an LP in the studio that we know of? I'm guessing it's a slight hint if its anything to do with the reunion at all.

Back to habits like recording MELLON COLLIE...?
"Having thrashed out the basics of the album in a month and a half at their own rehearsal facility in the band's native Chicago, the Pumpkins moved into a recording studio proper."

They have a rehearsal space in L.A.:


And if it's just for BILLY's next solo album

He used this one on WBFTT.

The one in that photo doesn't match any of his Gibsons on SPFC, for what that's worth. It does look like James', but Jeff's got one too.

It seems that Nicole used a Thunderbird to record The Chimera

I'm actually willing to bet the LP and Thunderbird are Billy's and he may have just passed them to Nicole and Jeff to play and record with. I can't find any other photos of her playing with that thing.

This is the guy who, after all, walked into a car dealership and paid cash for a Ferrari according to the Joe Rogan show not too long ago.

I am 100% certain one day he walked into a guitar shop with a truck parked out front and a briefcase full of bills in his hand and just left them rich.

I'm with you on this too. Most likely recording demos of new SP material.

Jeff? As in Jeff?

Honestly, he seems like a good guy. I'd rather not have him play on the new record, but I feel he'd be a good producer

I think Corgan loaned D'arcy all of her touring basses as well

My bet is it’s just a writing session for new SP material. Hashing out ideas etc.

Scott Weiland-fan BRETT BUCHANAN's actual summary today at his ALTERNATIVE NATION-site:
https://www.alternativenation.net/sm...oducer-studio/

Smashing Pumpkins Working With Surprising Producer In Studio

The Smashing Pumpkins members Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin are working with producer Howard Willing in the studio in Los Angeles. Willing shared photos from the studio, saying that he had just been working with Cheap Trick in Nashville and caught a red eye flight to make it to LA. Jimmy Chamberlin also shared a photo from the studio, calling it his ‘office’ for the next few weeks. Billy Corgan shared a photo of his Big Muff pedal. James Iha and D’arcy Wretzky have not been photographed, but Iha does live in Los Angeles. A reunion of the original lineup has been frequently discussed by Corgan for the last two years since Iha reunited with the Pumpkins onstage in Los Angeles and Chicago for three performances.

Howard Willing produced Smashing Pumpkins’ 2014 album Monuments to an Elegy, which featured Tommy Lee on drums. He also was producing the followup Day For Night, before Billy Corgan abandoned the album midway through in 2015. Willing’s relationship to the Pumpkins goes back to the 90’s, as he served as an engineer on Adore and MACHINA/The Machines of God.

Willing also produced Corgan’s solo album recording sessions last month in Nashville for the followup to Ogilala. Corgan claimed that the album’s recording was done after the sessions, outside of overdubs and possibly one new song that would be recorded as he goes to finish up in Nashville likely in February. Corgan described that album as raw and stripped down, so it’s highly unlikely that the current Los Angeles recording sessions have anything to do with that album. Corgan did discuss having an interest in re-recording some unreleased Zwan era tracks last month, but he never followed up with any concrete plans and a recent Instagram post indicates that new material is being worked on. A fan claimed a couple of months ago he overheard Jimmy Chamberlin telling someone at a drum clinic that the original Smashing Pumpkins lineup would reunite to record a new album in 2018.

A new photo was also released today of Corgan and Chamberlin working on a song. Corgan wrote on Instagram, “Ye olde pros… Still looking for the lost chord @chamberdrums #WPC.”

+++

HOWARD WILLING got production credits on MONUMENTS beside BILLY CORGAN and JEFF SCHROEDER.
Will he get the same with BILLY CORGAN and JIMMY CHAMBERLIN again? Maybe that's why he's putting three mikes on one bass speaker...

If only nice carpets had saved Monuments from sounding like it does.

I had a short moment of "yay, JC is in da house"-joy - and then I remembered Zeitgeist.

We'll see if his drums can make up for... whatever else they do this time.

lover lover horseshit nothing to say what rhymes with horseshit lover duuu vibrato shit production - but at least the drums!
