Early Corgan recordings
More details are out about what Billy Corgan plans on releasing from early in the Smashing Pumpkins career. The singer/songwriter says his next project will be a multi-volume collection of home demos from 1885 to 1990 and it will show just how bad of a musician he used to be. Corgan warns that the tracks are all over the place in terms of quality. When you’re 18 and you find a microphone and a recorder, what do you expect? Corgan says there are more than 800 tracks to consider and it may take a while.
