The band that has managed to get in my head for about two months now are The Smashing Pumpkins. They are an awesome band out of Chicago that formed in 1988. They are alive and well, even after going through a few bumps on the road. The band’s currrent lineup consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Billy Corgan, drummer Mike Bryrne, bassist Nicole Fiorentino, and guitarist Jeff Schroeder. Their music style is a heavy grunge rock and they have pulled out some hits like “1979,” “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” (my personal favorite), and others.
And also they have a book! AWESOME FOR THE LIBRARY! They are scheduled to realease their new ablum, Oceania, on June 19th, 2012.
