Still incredible to read in the same Rolling Stone-interview what fucked up tension has happened now again, thanks to Corgan :

Corgan is thrilled they are finally all on good terms after years of talking primarily through the press. "Communicating solely through the fog of media is obviously not the best way to communicate in the era of fake news," Corgan says with a laugh. "Often times I would try to explain to people that the issues were more familial than they were musical. People just don't believe you. Maybe because they don't want to since it's not as interesting."

He blames the tension that ultimately erupted in the band to their relentless work schedule in the 1990s. "We were in a pressure cooker for 13, 14 years," he says. "We were literally together almost non-stop for a long time. We did a lot of work and we put ourselves through some crazy shit. When the family thing broke, it was one of those things like, 'Hey, have you talked to your cousin?' 'Eh, I love him, but you know, whatever.' So it was like that for a long time, and now that that's over, and the family thing is resolved, it's awesome."

That doesn't mean a reunion tour of any sort is anywhere near a definite thing.

iha plays guitar, he plays sustained droning chords and makes the volume swell after he hits the strings, so you only get the sustaining sound, like a keyboard. then he feeds that into delay pedals and reverb, etc and compressors. it's playing guitar in order to sound like a keyboard. the type of stylistic touch that's always been his trademark (besides boning d'arcy).
