The brilliance of Smashing Pumpkins - Part 2


Pisce's Iscariot
The brilliance of rockers Smashing Pumpkins continues with the release of the band's 1994's Pisces Iscariot - now remastered for the first time.  This follows last year’s acclaimed reissues of the band’s groundbreaking first two albums, Gish (1991) and Siamese Dream (1993). “A collection of odds and orphans from the dusky realms of Pumpkinland” is how the band's founding member Billy Corgan describes the CD in the liner notes penned by David Wild. “Pisces Iscariot was the little mix tape that went platinum,” writes David. “This unlikely smash album that some came to mistake for the Pumpkins’ third studio effort even yielded a hit single, another wonderfully odd moment in the landslide that was the intense early success story of Smashing Pumpkins.” Featuring the band’s take on the Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks song “Landslide”, the CD is being released in multiple configurations: Deluxe Physical Album, which comes with a live DVD and the first-ever Smashing Pumpkins demo reproduced on cassette,  Deluxe Digital, Standard Physical, Digital and 180G Vinyl. The bonus content and special features were curated from the band’s archives by Billy, and have been painstakingly remastered for the first time from the original master tapes.
