Live Review: The Smashing Pumpkins + Gerard Way - The Big Top, Sydney (25.02.15)

For a long while there Billy Corgan’s eccentricities overshadowed his music. Every month another piece of click-bait drama emerged; dating Courtney Love, forming his own wrestling company, and waging war on everyone from his contemporaries to pop music itself. It was a thrill to walk out of Luna Park’s Big Top with The Smashing Pumpkins music having been the epicentre of the night.

New Music Video: The Smashing Pumpkins "Being Beige" (2015)

As we edge closer to their much anticipated Australian return, The Smashing Pumpkins have given fans out this way something to keep us occupied until they arrive. Their new film clip, for single "Being Beige", is released today and, true to the form of their latest album Monuments to an Elegy, it's a great mix of honest and melancholic. Some would say it's a return to form for Corgan and co, while others say this album shows the band in a refreshed state - "Being Beige" is one of the better cuts off the record in my opinion offers a great display of tone and texture, something the clip encapsulates as well.

Single Stream: The Smashing Pumpkins "One and All" (2014)

The first of two new albums from The Smashing Pumpkins, Moments to an Elegy, will be released early next month, so it's only right that we get a few tastes of the new sound. New track "One and All" is drowning in fuzzy guitars as Billy Corgan recalls youth and Motley Crue's Tommy Lee bangs away aggressively on the drums, placing it is a bit edgier than lead single "Being Biege" which was released late last month.
