It’s been a real Lynchian experience for The Smashing Pumpkins in the years following 2000’s Machina II/The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music, the last studio album to feature Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin.
There was Zwan. There were solo albums. There was a half-reunion. There was a half-reunion record (see 2007’s Zeitgeist). There was another Chamberlin-less era. There were two Chamberlin-less albums (see: 2012’s Oceania and 2014’s Monuments to an Elegy). There were two nostalgic tours, both featuring Chamberlin and one bringing back Iha.
Skip to present day, and Smashing Pumpkins latest release sees Corgan back with Iha and Chamberlin for ‘Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun‘. which was released in November last year.
Corgan will be performing as a solo artist on June 19th in Dublin’s iconic Olympia Theatre with tickets on sale from Ticketmaster. For further details, please contact MCD Productions.
