Your Billy Corgan Fix for This Year

Tuesday, the Smashing Pumpkins (Zwan II? Billy Corgan Band?) released Zeitgeist, their first set of new material since 2000. Some people say it’s not really the Pumpkins since the blonde chick and Asian dude aren’t there, but I still think it rocks. It’s sort of like Muse with stoner riffs. The band is now just Billy and Jimmy Chamberlin (remember, he was the guy who didn’t OD on heroin in 1996). No word on any local shows just yet, unless October’s Voodoo Festival in Nawlins counts. Carpool time, 90 kids!!

Here’s the video for “Tarantula”. Oh, and apparently flowing white tunics are back. – Craig Hlavaty
