one of my own bugs politicians dude...
I have it on my I-pod but it's still one physical gem that alludes me. Machina is supposed to one day be part of the reissue sets they were releasing and on top of that the very next one. I had my fingers crossed that the deluxe would include Machina II.
The only official physical Machine II release is a double vinyl from Constantinople Records, which is probably impossible to find. I'm sure it'll be released/re-released in various physical formats at some point.
Hope so because I'd love to own all their discography. I'm a completionist. lol
Once I dig a band I have to have all their work even their less stellar stuff.
I hear ya. I'm exactly the same!
I have a lot of their early singles on CD and vinyl, sold some limited ones for a tidy sum as had the tracks on albums, sold some of the limited vinyl releases from back when I worked in a record store and made a few bob.
I think they lost their way a little, I loved them back in the day and their first few albums were amazing, great live band but they changed and went off on one and releasing limited stuff and downloaded stuff and it all just made me sad. I still listen to them now.
The box sets of their first two albums and the complation are unreal but expensive, worth the money tho.
Thanks for the heads-up.
Adore is a killer album. Diggin Perfect and Daphne Descends.
Absolutely agree! Adore is the only Pumpkins album that doesn't sound like Pumpkins. All those dreadful Teargarden, Oceania, Elegy pieces sound like a Billy Corgan assembly line.
When Adore came out I instantly loved it as much as I was surprised by the sound. Everyone hated it and I never understood why. A less vain Corgan could have built upon it and reached new heights of creativity. Of course Corgan was too vain for that and in the aftermath ruined the Pumpkins legacy.
SMASHING PUMPKINS Drummer Hints At 2018 Reunion Tour Featuring Original Lineup
Founding member and main songwriter Billy Corgan has been touring under the SMASHING PUMPKINS name for several years with a newer lineup of musicians, although Chamberlin rejoined the band two years ago.
More significantly, Corgan confirmed last summer that he had repaired his friendship with original bassist D'Arcy Wretzky, after not speaking for nearly two decades. With Chamberlin back in the band already and guitarist James Iha joining them onstage for the first time in sixteen years in early 2016, a reunion of the group's original lineup appears to be imminent.
