Well, that's encouraging!

Maybe they were inspired by the Silversun Pickups, who have been doing Smashing Pumpkins-style rock for a few years now, much better than the Pumpkins themselves had been doing for quite a while, as you noted.

You moonlighting as a professional record reviewer? If not, you could. wink

I may have to get that old Zwan album. I've considered it a few times. Sean, do you have Hole's Celebrity Skin? Corgan produced a few of the songs, and it has always been one of my favorite albums of that genre.
Bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica.
