I'm pretty sure if we could go back to the first shows Billy would promising his first fans something that he never delivered.
I'm not really aware of that one. Did they not send out the lyric sheets?

3.9 SP Fan Club

The "fan club" started when the Siamese Dream liner notes included the
words "smashing pumpkins fan club information" next to their PO box address
(which was different on both releases of Gish). Since then, there have
been a few newsletters & t-shirt order forms, but the one person running it
(Laura Ann) is a bit more enthusiastic than the rest of the band, who
hasn't been giving her stuff to send out. For now, Laura serves mainly to
read their mail, attempt to answer basic questions, and sell T-shirts.
Until further notice, however, it may be wise to hold off on "joining,"
since the $3 "membership" fee isn't really going anywhere. But if you
don't mind sending money to someone to send off to an accountant somewhere
or if you just feel like sending mail, the address is:

SPFC, PO Box 578010, Chicago, IL 60657.
I find it interesting that the newer version of the FAQ has removed reference to the $3 membership that you paid to get nothing in return. I could swear there is a much much longer version of the story in another version of the FAQ somewhere.

3.8 SP Fan Club; SPIFC (SP Internet Fan Club)

The "fan club" started when the Siamese Dream liner notes included the
words "smashing pumpkins fan club information" next to their PO box address
(which was different on both releases of Gish). Since then, there were a
few newsletters & t-shirt order forms, but the one person running it (Laura
Ann) was a bit more enthusiastic than the rest of the band about it, and they
never did much with it.

In April 1999, a new semi-official Smashing Pumpkins Fan Club launched: The
Smashing Pumpkins Internet Fan Club (http://www.spifc.org). SPIFC's sources
of information were apparently very close to, if not the band itself.

With the re-launch of the band, most of the information now appears to show up
there first. Check http://www.smashingpumpkins.com/ for the latest info.

Yes taking money for a service and never delivering is such a silly trivial issue.

NEXT ANNOUNCEMENT:
The release date of Billy Corgan's new solo record is now scheduled for September. He should have told so when talking to fans at a stop at his train ride.

So Billy Corgan will be Rick Rubin's new cash this Christmas.
And a MACHINA reissue won't happen this year...

it's loooong gone by now and i have never seen or heard it mentioned anywhere since. would love to see it again one day so that i know i'm not crazy.
