I was a big pumkins fan for a few years (many years ago).
i don't think i could give two shits about them now, though.
and i agree with esbern, i beleive this was a bullshit statemnt from the bald one.

billy corgan though, was my hero for a coupla years, but i cant see this working out. so fuck off billy.

notice the "I/they", at least HE acknowledges he serves no function!

The lines from "Range Life", off of Pavement's Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain.
Didn't mean to offend you, as obviously you're a fan of Corgan.
Just pointing out that he takes himself WAY too seriously...

I don't know a lot of people around here (his hometown) who take him that seriously. Personally, I can't stand it when frontmen carry on their band name when they're essentially solo albums - I can think of Tears for Fears, OMD and Judybats, offhand. Though to be fair, when Roland Orzabal finally got back with Curt Smith, TFF's last album sucked way more than the Smith-less albums.

Just an update. Seems like the reform is going ahead with just Billy and Jimmy. According to Melissa Auf der Maur, they're working on a new album, with a tour to follow.

Disarm you with a smile
And cut you like you want me to
Cut that little child
Inside of me and such a part of you
don't care what the new reunion yields . . my life's already been defined by a combo of pearl jam and smahsnig pumkins, so I'm happy ;-D
