This!
I completely agree.
I am sick of all announcements.
Bring on new good music and maybe the music world gives you a bit of attention bolly

Guys I’ve been through Billy’s receipts and discovered a nugget of exciting new information. I will reveal another letter each day. Cannot say how this relates to the new record or other projects, don’t want the FBI knocking on my door.

Part of me thinks it's neat how Billy still wants to play the hype man, as if it's 1998 and we're all breathlessly visiting each other's Geocities SP pages and trying to stream something on realplayer.

Nobody cares about SP except for the long-time fans and nobody cares about rock music in general, I don't even think the countdown clocks made it to Stereogum, for example, who usually see the Pumpkins in a favourable light.

So if he's simply catering to hardcore fans with some of the Machina mystery "fun", that's cool I guess.

But if he thinks he's going to intrigue the general public, he's going to be massively disappointed.

If he knows he has a quality product, I agree the best thing to do is drop it at like midnight on a Thursday night and get all the good Friday buzz.

man Appa was captured by Sand Benders in the desert and then sold to merchants from Ba Sing Sae. He's been missing for like three fucking episodes. This shit is distressing my soul.

There's no way we'll ever find out what that 90 day countdown is for. The clock will disappear with no explanation way before then.

Working remotely can be more difficult from an improvisational standpoint. But Corgan and I have been working remotely pretty frequently during this time. He and I are kind of joined at the hip, anyway. There’s not a lot of disconnect there. But I could see if you’re trying to put something together from the ground up in an impersonal medium like that, it could be a little bit more challenging. It is what it is, right? It all kind of feeds into the holistic thing. Whatever you end up with is predicated on the environment or tools or limitations. Brain Eno was a big fan of limitation. “I’m just gonna use one keyboard on this record and that’s going to be the sound, and I’m going to marry myself to it.” It’s another version of that, in a way.

Corgan never stops writing. It’s just a matter of when we have the time or bandwidth to do something. We have a 20-song album coming out this year, the single drops this month. Then I just finished drum arrangements for 12 more songs that we’re working on. And then we have another opus in the works that we’re planning. For us, one of the driving forces in the band that keeps us going live is that it maintains its status as a creative force. We hold that sacred. We don’t want to just go out and do victory laps on our first four records. We want to maintain a creative stance and use it as an ability to push the envelope musically. It’s been fun. In this environment, where I guess you have more to gain and less to lose, it becomes easier to just push boundaries. Not that it was ever that difficult for us, but we find ourselves making decisions based just on quality and not much else. In that regard it’s a lot more freeing, or can be.

He’s over in his cave and I’m in mine. [Laughs.] I did see him a few days ago, because we had some stuff we couldn’t do over a screen. I’ve got a nice studio here and he’s got a nice studio, so he’ll send me stems, and we’ll go back and forth, rearrange stuff. It’s a slower process for sure, than him and I in a room. But there’s something cool about the built-in window of reflection that you have, which you don’t have when you’re just arranging on the fly. You don’t really get a lot of time to get out of your head or rise above yourself. With this kind of built-in delay mechanism, it’s cool to be not in a hurry, and to step back and listen to something from a listener’s standpoint as opposed to being judge, jury, and hangman, which is our usual position when we’re writing.

Gavin Rossendale of Bush.

In an interview he let it slip that Bush are touring with SP next year and it’s especially exciting because the bassist is back. He didn’t actually say Darcy so maybe he’s just excited that Jack Bates is returning for another tour.

Also Darcy is in the **** keywords on the SP countdown page. Curiously, Jack Bates isn’t.
