BILLY CORGAN SAYS OCEANIA IS A TIMELY RECORD, UNLIKE OTHER BANDS PRETENDING IT’S STILL 1997
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan told ColumbusAlive.com that the Smashing Pumpkins’ latest album Oceania is a new timely record, unlike other bands who are pretending it’s 1997 on new material. I wonder who he’s talking about? Could it be an anagram of Nudedragons?
“I’m proud to say that I think I’ve made a really quality record in a time when most people are not making quality records. And I mean new and timely, like 2012. Not, “It’s 1997, wink wink, it’s 2012” records. Like, it’s a new record. And I’m proud of that. And that could only have happened by being contrarian, and by being willing to go against that flow and willing to take a hit on the business and all that.”
