Smashing Pumpkins - Video Singles; Alternative Rock!
This is the DVD to buy if you are a Smashing Pumpkins fan. It is all the singles they released between 1991 and 2000. Or from 'Gish' to 'Machina'. Contents: 20 videos and live performances, behind the scenes footage, and one never-before-released song. Also a short student film added by Corgan for a friend. Songs: Siva, Rhinoceros, Cherub Rock, Today, Disarm, Rocket, Bullet With Butterfly Wings, 1979, Zero, Tonight Tonight, Thirty-Three, Ava Adore, Perfect, The Everlasting Gaze, Stand Inside Your Love, Try Try Try, Geek USA, An Ode to No One, I Am One, Try, Untitled. The Smashing Pumpkins surfaced with 'Gish' around the same time the Seattle Grunge Scene was taking off. They are often lumped in with this scene, mainly because their music is raw and experimental and alternative. Rock. They do their own thing. Just like AIC (alternative original metal). Just like Pearl Jam (original alternative country-ish rock). Just like Dinosaur Jr (original alternative punk-driven rock). There was not a 'Grunge' scene. There were just a bunch of good bands appearing simultaneously. The 'Pumpkins' are one of the best. Faultless DVD, put together with some thought. Ghost BookFiends.Read full review
