Hear Some Classic Smashing Pumpkins Demos

By Tom Breihan / November 17, 2011

EMI is getting ready to reissue the first (and almost certainly best) two albums from the Smashing Pumpkins, fleshing Gish and Siamese Dream out with absurd numbers of bonus tracks. Right now, four of those bonus tracks are streaming at the website of the Seattle radio station 107.7 The End, and all four are demo versions of stone-classic Pumpkins tracks from those two LPs. Head over here to hear demo versions of “I Am One,” “Today,” and “Rocket,” as well as a perfectly lovely acoustic (though not exactly lo-fi) mix of “Disarm.”

Those Gish and Siamese Dream reissues are out 11/29 in North America and 12/5 internationally, via EMI.
