Default Why is Mike Byrne in all these other bands when hes in one of the coolest bands ever?

I find it odd that Byrnes creating all these new bands when hes a member in the fucking SMASHING PUMPKINS!!! I mean shit, thats gotta be the coolest band you could possibly join... You figure that would be musically and artistically pleasing enough.

If i were him I'd be putting all my time in to make the Pumpkins better instead of creating and focusing on all these new bands. The kid has an opportunity of a lifetime and he seems to wanna just use it as a stepping stone to further his hipster bullshit bands.

I mean shit... Maybe if he focused all his time on SP and not on Bearcubbing and jewel and the skywalkers or whatever their called he would be performing better in the band that has created a library full of great music...

I mean hes in the Smashing Pumpkins but also feels he has to put his all into a hipster math-rock band... YOU'RE ALREADY IN ONE OF THE BEST BANDS EVER DUMBASS!!! FOCUS ON THAT AND MAYBE YOU WONT SOUND MILES BEHIND JIMMY!!!!

Exactly... If I joined Smashing Pumpkins I would be ecstatic and focusing all my time to make this legendary band better... I wouldn't be off forming brand new bands planning tours to further these new projects when I'm in an amazing band...

Whats the point of that?... Being in Smashing Pumpkins isn't fulfilling enough? Being in Smashing Pumpkins isn't exciting enough? I don't see how you can be in the Smashing Pumpkins and still be figuring that you have to fill some void with other projects.

These new clowns (not including Jeff) seem to be more concerned with their side projects and just hoping they can use SP as a stepping stone to make their side projects known.

I wouldn't go that far.

nicole's album has been on hold all year. She and Megan haven't been able to finish it, in part because nicole's been either in the studio or on tour.

I dont' know wtf Mike is up to. my impression is that his homies from jr high really want to jam with him when he gets a break from touring or recoring all those billy demos (that we'll never hear). he's so young he probably hasn't figured out that bill will call any time any day of the week and say "get on a bus and get your ass over hear cause I feel like wasting every minute of your life."

i'd be looking for new employment too

I wouldn't say Jeff is one of the best, but it you say so.

Jewels and the Wallwalkers seemed to be more of a band from the past that just decided to put their shit out on the internet, but Bearcubbin' is just as awful so your guess is as good as mine.

Honestly though. If i was Corgan giving some kid an opportunity of a life time I'd be a little irked that he decides to form his own brand new band like 10 months later after joining THE SMASHING PUMPKINS. It sorta felt that way whenever I've been in local bands and a member starts some other shit... Its always sort of a slap in the face... Kinda like what the fuck aren't we all on the same page? You want to play in a new band?

I mean if Billy Corgan let me join the band I can tell you I wouldn't feel the need to start making my own new band the first chance I got...

I'm actually pretty surprised Billys so cool with it being the huge egomaniac he is.

you don't join a band like (the current incarnation of) the smashing pumpkins unless you want a platform to launch yourself out of obscurity

Well Billy did make Mike cancel that sweet tour Bearcubbin' was about to go on so he could demo with Smashing Pumpkins...

Nobody has considered Smashing Pumpkins a cool band since 1995.

Sorry dude but your high opinion of the smashing pumpkins is about 15 years too late

tbh i agree, i think a lot of the animosity towards the current band comes from the use of the sp name.

if he did something like what 'kyuss' did with 'kyuss lives' (without josh homme), it would make things much more bearable. like, it's openly not the same band so who cares if people think it's crap or not.

Yeah I think you guys are onto something. You're setting yourself up for ridicule calling this band SP when the musicianship is at such a lower level than it used to be... Even Billy said in not so many words recently that the new band lacks the intensity and drive of the old one.

I wish Billy would just move on. It'd be sweeter seeing him as a solo artist playing songs from all throughout his career anyhow... It'd be better for Byrne too. His inefficiencies wouldn't be so glaring because people wouldn't be fairly comparing him to Jimmy... When a band one day has an all time beast at the drums and then suddenly does not anymore its gonna be something people notice and be irked out about.

Corgan: "What we lack at times in excessive force..... " Its pretty obvious hes admitting the band doesn't have that powerhouse driving sound it used to...

Not me... SP's just having a hard time keeping me interested anymore... Sooo many big prolific promises and nothing comes to fruition. I dont even care about Oceania anymore. It probably wont come out till the summer or someshit... And then when I buy it it'll probably be full of cheesy souinding synths and shitty all over the place Byrne drumming.

Not to mention Mike Byrnes boy-band sounding back up vocals and Nicoles high off key voice.

This new band sucks
