The release thing definitely hurt it. Being psychedelic in a “Sgt Peppers, but it’s all Paul songs” way hurt it too.

The method of release was stupid, made worse by the terrible and disorganised execution, but if the songs were at least decent, then it might have been worth some attention. But the songs weren't decent, they were shit. Nothing can save shit songs.

what was also bad is that they had recorded the next song, but then couldn't release it because they first had to negotiate a deal with myspace or whatever for exclusivity. it went completely against the whole concept.

maybe it made sense to them.

the only point behind it was to force people to become interested.

it's "that old uncle at the family bbq" band marketing mentality:
when they begin losing interest, make sure you talk a lot more and in shorter self contained sentences, preferably making each one a cliffhanger

but only a handful of people knew about teagarden. a lot of potentially interested listeners weren't reached.

it would have been much more profitable to release a 44-teabag package for a discount price, for sure.

Fact is that he lost the magic, and kids dont give a fart about sp.
All those announcements sucked and still suck.

I definitely have zero hopes for any good sp or wpc album.
James is back, but what is different? Nothing, he isnt even involved seriously in anything...
Their strength was the guitar interplay, but it is all about default logic synths.

That may be the defining statement of Smashing Pumpkins 2007 - Present: "maybe it made sense to t****.

He said in that recent chat that he thinks people assumes he "hates" his earlier work. He doesn't, as he worked really hard to make that music.

And that people comparing his work now to that earlier work, well, it was still him that made it.

Why would people think that?

Do you think it's because he blocks anyone who compliments his earlier work?

I dunno, hard to tell.

Probably also because he doesn't make music that sounds at all like his earlier work, and hasn't for years.
