Free Shit: The Smashing Pumpkins
Smashing Pumpkins‘ landmark 1993 album Siamese Dream – one of the most classic & influential albums of the 90s – has been remastered and reissued for the first time – and Antiquiet’s hooking you up with a kickass Deluxe Edition box set!
On November 29 in North America and December 5 internationally, EMI Music will launch an extensive campaign honoring the legacy of the Smashing Pumpkins by reissuing the iconic alternative band’s first two albums – Gish and Siamese Dream – in CD, deluxe 2CD/DVD, vinyl LP and digital configurations.
Both albums, each with bonus content and special features that were curated from the band’s archives by frontman and founding member Billy Corgan, have been painstakingly remastered for the first time from the original master tapes by Bob Ludwig.
The set includes:
• Original Album Remastered With Reimagined Cover Art
• 17 Previously Unreleased or Alternative Versions of Siamese Dream Era Songs
• Previously Unreleased, Full Length DVD From The Metro 1993
• 13 Postcards Featuring Original Album Collages
• 24 Page Booklet Featuring Complete Lyrics, Unpublished Personal Photos, Liner Notes by David Wild, and Track-by-Track Annotations by Billy Corgan
To win this badass little set, just follow @Antiquiet on Twitter, and shoot us a message with the hashtag #AQPumpkins. Simple as that!
In the album’s liner notes, Corgan says: “We start the album out with ‘Cherub Rock’ which is basically my big F.U. to the indie world. If you read the lyrics, that was basically me railing against the hipper than thou New York indie mentality.”
