Smashing Pumpkins brilliance...

Smashing Pumpkins' remastered Gish and Siamese Dream CDs
One of the biggest and most influential alt rockers in the world, the Smashing Pumpkins have sold over 30 million albums and to date have notched up 5 UK Top 10 albums and 11 UK Top 40 singles. The first two CDs, Gish and Siamese Dream, have now received the full remastered treatment, and come in deluxe 2 CD/DVD, standard 1 CD and digital formats. Both albums come bursting with bonus content and special features hand-picked from the band's archives by founding member, lead-singer and main songwriter Billy Corgan. Both deluxe CDs will each include a bonus disc of rare and previously unreleased gems, which include demos, mixes and live radio performances to name a few. Billy Corgan wrote on the official Smashing Pumpkins site about the two re-releases: "Gish - Recorded in 1990 and 1991, 'Gish' represents our first foray into the deep waters of rock and roll. In the music within, I still hear our naivete and fresh spirits asking to be heard, and I miss the times that helped make this music so earnest. Siamese Dream - In 1992, with the weight of a perceived world on our shoulders, we disappeared into a parking garage to write the songs that would change the course of our lives forever. 'Siamese Dream' represents all of our dreams coming true, while the dreams of a happy band fell apart."
