PJ Harvey opened for them on this tour, believe it or not.
A little harsh on Mojave 3 here… Ask Me Tomorrow is an amazing record.
OK, I’m going to play along, and do Corgan-related albums, not just SP, and include all b-side comps, if Pisces makes the cut:
2. Siamese Dream
3. Mellon Collie
4. Pisces Iscariot
6. Aeroplane Flies High
9. Mary, Star of the Sea
10. Machina II
12. Future Embrace
14. Judas O’
It’s probably just a matter of taste, but I’ve always been more into the softer side of Pumpkins, so Adore has been #1 for me for a long time. I’m counting Judas O’ because the name alone seems to want to be taken seriously as a counterpart to Pisces, and it’s nice to not have Zeitgiest last, as Z. is far from perfect but no where near as bad as people would have you believe.
It’s such a shame a proper album was never made of all the 2007 residency songs. Easily the best work Corgan’s done since reforming the Pumpkins.
Move Mingus up a few notches, and I’m in total agreement with this list. Nice work!
This is a great record.
This one’s for you, AnAmPat:
On Stereogum, it’s called a Spiderlandboner.
@TheDirtyProjectors just posted a photo (taken with Instagram).
If the album captures the feeling of the new songs as they were played on the recent tour, this is going to be good. Corgan works best in an album setting, so while I’ve enjoyed the Teargarden stuff up to now, I have hopes this will be better all around.
