LISTEN UP: Gluing Pumpkins Back Together

|

Billy Corgan

  • Culture Bully posts an encouraging setlist from a recent Smashing Pumpkins concert, as well as a new song that the band slipped in, which is really upbeat and entirely acoustic. Did someone finally put a wheel in that rat cage?
  • The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion is just one of those bands I have never understood at all, like I’m being left out on an inside joke or something. Same deal with stuff like Captain Beefheart, Sun Ra, Bruce Springsteen… (Sugartown)
  • I appreciate any blog post that features both Nick Drake and Reverend Horton Heat. Also, my favorite food is steak with lollipops on it.(Aural Fitness)
  • I’m really digging S-S-S-Spectres and their ridiculous 1:50 song bursts over at Idolator, but I’m also a huge Ramones fan, my attention span for songs
  • Finally, Keep The Coffee Coming posts a terrific Procol Harum song that really brings me back to the 90s, when the song was only 30 years old.
