The Smashing Pumpkins – “Tiberius”

The Smashing Pumpkins – “Tiberius”

I’m assuming the new Smashing Pumpkins single, “Tiberius,” is a reference to the Roman emperor, not the original Star Trek captain’s middle name, but the latter explanation wouldn’t be a bad one: Smashing Pumpkins fans are nearly as obsessive as Trekkers/Trekkies. In fact, there’s probably a good amount of overlap between the two camps. In any case, “Tiberius” follows “Being Beige” and “One And All” in the lead-up to the release of the band’s new Monuments To An Elegy, and it’s probably the best of the three songs, which is a good sign for the album. It’s built on a real Cars-style synth, which suits Billy Corgan’s voice as well as his other compositional choices. Listen.
