Default Is SPFC no longer updated?

Hi friends, old user here. I haven't been following anything in Pumpkins land for a bit, but I'm of course stoked for the new album(s).

Quick question, is SPFC on hiatus, and are there any backup comparable sites up and running?

Billy has offered to help the SPFC guy if he was motivated enough to reach out, but he didn't, so that should tell you all you need to know about the site.

I've been in contact with Eric. He tells me that he has had "Cyr" on repeat for weeks as he is meticulously transcribing it so that he can add the tabs to the site as soon as he is able. He asks for your patience.

I also emailed Eric about a month ago when the new V2 songs first became available. He said with so many new songs and announcements he was a little behind and still digesting new music from Cotillions. Some great news for the site though - significant progress on the holographic-line render of Jack Bates.

There are 174 unique holographic head renders. The breakdown is as follows:

000 - 000 Melissa Gaboriau Auf der Maur
001 - 022 William Patrick Corgan Jr.
023 - 049 James Joseph Chamberlin
050 - 076 James Yoshinobu Iha
077 - 097 Melissa Gaboriau Auf der Maur
098 - 102 William Patrick Corgan Jr.
103 - 116 D'arcy Elizabeth Wretzky-Brown
117 - 121 Matthew D Sweeney
122 - 127 David Pajo
128 - 133 Paz Lenchantin
134 - 135 Jonathan David Melvoin
136 - 137 Kenny Aronoff
138 - 139 Linda Michelle Rowberry
140 - 141 Michael David Garson
142 - 146 Ginger A. Reyes-Pooley
147 - 151 Jeffrey Kim Schroeder
152 - 156 Lisa Rae Harriton
157 - 163 Michael William Byrne
164 - 173 Nicole Margaret Fiorentino

No two heads repeat in color and style across all of the sequential renders. It appears that the color, style and number of character renders were chosen haphazardly.

Total number of appearances breaks down as follows:

27 William Patrick Corgan Jr.
27 James Joseph Chamberlin
27 James Yoshinobu Iha
22 Melissa Gaboriau Auf der Maur
14 D'arcy Elizabeth Wretzky-Brown
10 Nicole Margaret Fiorentino
07 Michael William Byrne
06 David Pajo
06 Paz Lenchantin
05 Matthew D Sweeney
05 Ginger A. Reyes-Pooley
05 Jeffrey Kim Schroeder
05 Lisa Rae Harriton
02 Jonathan David Melvoin
02 Kenny Aronoff
02 Linda Michelle Rowberry
02 Michael David Garson

In total there are 17 unique people featured as renders.


114 is my personal favoright.

yes, it's still a little obscure, but a lot of people have joined recently. You can try the new SP Legacy Fan Forum here

I thought my post was pretty funny. Could have made a Boris or two gallants joke for the billionth time.

we love the music of Smashing Pumpkins. We just think billy is a monster. And most of what he's done since the band ended 20 years ago has been terrible.

There are no "Boris jokes." They are the best band in the universe, of all time, like, ever.

Normally I would counsel all of you to switch over, but since the Bald Lord is experiencing a rejuvenation with those last four slaptastic tunes, I will restrain myself accordingly.
