You see, you say that in jest but it's not a bad idea. Doing some sort of high-quality "official" SP zine. It'd be a bit propaganda-ish, but undoubtably fun to put together with the access you'd get. Like a fan club magazine. He's relatively accessible these days, I might seriously suggest it, based on how well this turned out.

That looks really cool. I ordered a copy. That's nice that Corgan gave you his blessing even though he cannot "officially" support it. If fans like you create actual content that doesn't just kiss Corgan's ass (like Sad Machines), but provides content and intelligent discourse on what Corgan does well and what he could improve, I feel there's a chance that, after a while, he could receive some constructive criticisms in a way that wouldn't cause him to go from "1" to "10" immediately.

Thank you! I would be interested in what he'd say if he ever read it - I'm going to give a copy to Jeff tomorrow and Katelan Foisey will definitely read it, and she knows him well. The interviews aren't editorialized at all, they're just transcripts so they stand on their own for the reader to decide for themselves, but there's a review of a Shiny gig in there which has a few critical points, and the feature on SP's UK touring history goes into the iffier corners as well. For the most part it's more a celebration, though. If I'd have got the album in time to get the review in before it went to print it would have had some critical stuff, but annoyingly they missed the print deadline by two days

Brilliant!
Thanks! People have been known to say I'm a comical genius.





















No... no they haven't.

I have just placed a copy of the fanzine into Billy’s hands. If you never hear from me again then assume it went badly.

I actually interviewed Jeff today, the rest of the band were there doing other press though so I said hello to everyone. James gave me some healthy snacks! I’ve interviewed Billy twice before, he’s always fascinating but prickley. Jeff was lovely!

Was it like that scene in Notting Hill, where you arrived with flowers expecting a date but you had to do a load of other interviews first?

SOLD OUT! Posted them all this week, so the (by my reckoning) ten or so people off here who bought one should get it soon! Although stupidly I under charged for international postage and ended up losing £50 on the whole thing. LOOK, I DO ART NOT MATHS, OKAY?

Interesting observation - I sold 50 copies (may do a re-print), all mail order. None to major cities. No London, Manchester, New York, or LA. No Chicago either. Which is unusual: I'm used to doing mail outs for my band and there's always more London, Manchester and New York (and, weirdly in our case, Detroit) than any other city. The whole run was sold off the back of posts on here, Reddit, some FB group I found, Instagram and RT's from people involved - interesting that SP fandom apparently doesn't live in the traditional music capitals these days.

What are English healthy snacks (beside Fish & Chips)?

If he comes too prickley, I would ask him, how he felt interviewing Nick Cave at Loolapalozza.

Razor Star - if you are looking for more artwork if you do this again just let me know. 15 year old me lived off drawing BC over and over - so 32 year old me now actually has some skillz and would thoroughly enjoy attempting some SP related nonsense again.

Oh, i'd be up for seeing this. Skipgo (who used to post on here) did some amazing drawings of Corgan. He even used some of them on his myspace back on the day. Sadly she thinks he is a transphobic asshole these days, so we won't be seeing more of that kind of work sadly

I miss the 90s in the Celtic world. This period is awful. Please return me to the abject boredom, but simpler times of then. Soundtrack: Whigfield's Saturday night on repeat forever.

Sounds nice. I'm driving to Harpers Ferry WV tomorrow to hang with my lady friend and get hammered and eat a metric ton of pasta.

You should check out Harpers Ferry, its at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers and it's fuckin gawgus. It even has a rundown, haunted af hotel on there. I know your photos are more involved and artistic but its a cool area.

Please airlift me to this location. I'm bored of Scotland/ Ireland, and even though I was in LA a few weeks ago I think I need something new in my life, like haunted hotels and unpronounceable american towns.

This one's actually from about 8 years ago. I live in hope that as a society we're more accepting of trans people these days and he's learned his lesson. A lot has happened since 2011.
