I met Billy Corgan last week. He seemed like a reasonably nice guy. There was a mother nearby who shoved her young child in his path. Ritual blessing or a faint attempt at Corgan recruiting another drummer half his age, the kid was a bit freaked out by the bald behemoth, but I don’t really blame him (this guy). Anyway, this Iowa track managed to scoot in with all my 90’s reveling post-Splendour. The album they just released – Never Saw It Coming sounds decent* (*throwbacks). But if Mudhoney/Swervedriver melancholia is your thing, and you didn’t get the chance to wade in mud at Splendour and see Corgan yell mean things at the sound guy, I suggest you cease your nostalgic weeping and get along to one of these launch shows.
