    …and post an online only album for the fans on their website. It’s the ultimate way to give back to the fans; and make sure it’s decent recordings and not just studio sessions no one wanted. [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]

    But seriously, how cool would a free album from J. be? Pretty darned cool.



    Hey Jaron

    That would be cool but it must be way better than that Pumpkins Album, that was shit
    Some Remixes, Covers & Different versions
    Some good songs like If There Was A God but then He put it twice on the Album

    He will also release that album soon so we can buy that album in the shops so he can earn a little money about it

    Im looking forward to that Best Of Album of the Pumpkins, they say that their will be 2 new songs on it, which he wrote especially for the album, cant wait for that

    But its a shame they broke up [img]images/smiles/converted/cwm3.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/converted/rocketwhore.gif[/img]

    Well, what you must understand, is that all of what he released is not Machina II. The double LP is the only part of the album, which has: Glass’ Theme, Cash Car Star, Dross, Real Love… <snip>… Here’s To The Atom Bomb.

    Corgan said the 3 EPS, which have the covers and different versions of songs were "the b-sides" of the album. They are not Machina II.

    Some of your other information was inaccurate as well, I’m afraid. [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img] Don’t mean to pick but Corgan explicitly said Machina II will not have an official release. It will not be sold. It’s near impossible to do so since Virgin Records has the rights to it and they don’t want to take the time to do so.

    I haven’t heard anything about the greatest hits album, and I’m on the Pumpkins BBS near 24-7. I’d like to see your source on that since it’s new info to me. If it will have two new songs, you can bet one will be Untitled, which was the song he released to radio 3 days before the band broke up. Other then that, I’m interested.

    Nice to see another Pumpkin fan on the board.




    Untitled will not be one of the new tracks on the Best Of Album, he wrote 2 new songs for that album, I got this news from a very reliable source

    Btw I am one of the few who have all the Promos of Machina 2 , I know the story behind that album, I still dont like that album
    A weak version of Here’s to the Atom Bomb (Bside of Try Try Try is way much better) & Its not my favorite one, but the thoughts behind it are cool
    That source of me also told me that it will be released one day also like that last Metro concert & all the albums will be released with some new songs like demos & outtakes
    That could be interesting

    Whats the URl of That Pumpkins BBS?

    Btw their is a interesting site who will have a unreleased or live song on their site every day
    The url is: http://dailysp.diaryland.com
    Check it out sometimes

    Hmmm… the Pumpkins BBS is at http://www.smashingpumpkins.com/SPmb.html

    I agree that the Here’s to the atom Bomb on the bside of the "Try" European single is better.

    What do you mean by promos? Billy’s acoustic demos and such? Or something else entirely?

    As for Metro and other releases, Billy has said on the BBS that they were coming (or at least alluded highly to it) but hasn’t said in what order. The common thought is that Metro DVD will be released first followed by the albums, in order, with bonus tracks.

    I really haven’t heard anything about a greatest hits album, although I hope so. I spent some money to get a promo CD called "Smashing Pumpkins 1991-1998" which is a partial greatest hits.

    Other Pumpkin releases rumoured to be coming: Storytellers DVD (full thing, not just 5 songs), "Before the Beginning" and "After the End" recording on official website, and the Mashed Potatoes boxed set.

    Also, check out the "unreleased" music videos for Quiet and Jellybelly on the bands offical site. Good stuff.

    Oh, and here’s a site for you: http://www.givetheworld.net/shows/2000-12-02/ It has the first set of the Metro show.

    What do u mean with Hmmm?

    That Promo Album "The Smashing Pumpkins 1991 -1998" will be The Greatest Hits Album
    with some changes like new songs & some will taken off the album but its most likely that that will be the Best Of Album

    That greatest Hits Album will be released in August they say, and maybe there will be a linited Edition with a DVD of All the Pumpkins Videos, Lets hope its true, Its still a rumour (I mean that limited edition is a rumour)

    I’ve got all the MP3 of the Storyteller, 40 songs, great stuff

    It would be cool if they Released Smashed Potatoes, lets pray for that

    Thanks for that site
    I will check the Videos in a moment

    U can check all my Pumpkins Albumshere

    I meant "Hmmm…" as in I was thinking about what you told me. [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I would like a DVD of the videos, but I have a 2-VCD set that’s dang near DVD quality so I won’t cry if they don’t release one.

    Yeah, I got the storyteller’s boot, too… good stuff. There’s a VCD and VHS floating around of the full thing (all 2 hours). Would make a nice official release, if I do say so myself.

    P.S. Just looked at your album list. Must ? your Arising! songs date. There was no 4.4.99 show. The first show of the Arising! tour was 4.10.99 in Detroit. I know, because I was there. [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]

    U’re right,wrong date on My Cd
    Will change it on my list, thanx
    & its totally incomplete, I have only the new songs they played at that concert (I just discovered that) The person I get that one from said that it was the whole concert

    I will kill him for that [img]images/smiles/converted/dead.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/converted/rocketwhore.gif[/img]

    You trade bootlegs of the Pumpkins? Email me and I’ll send you my lsit if you do. I don’t like to post that sort of thing on message boards, though.

    Later, Jaron



    Saturnine (the other admonisher/my cousin)used to run a pretty big Pumpkin site back in the day – the Smashing Jack-O-Lantern. He is working on getting it back up now.
    The reason I mention this is that he should also have his ftp back up and has a ton of pumpkin boots. A TON I say [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img] Keep an eye out for the return! [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the heads up. I probably have most everything he has, cince I have a 150+ show collection myself, but I’ll take a look at it when it comes back up.
