The brainchild of angst-ridden perfectionist Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins’ mix of heavy metal, psychedelia, grunge, prog-rock, and dream-pop saw them become one of the biggest alternative bands of the 90’s. Inspired by bands like The Cure and New Order, Corgan formed the band with guitarist James Iha in 1988 before recruiting bassist D’arcy Wretzky and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin ahead of their first live performance at Chicago’s Cabaret Metro. Following the release of their 1990 first single, “I Am One,” Corgan began to cause tension within the group by insisting on playing nearly every instrument on 1991’s Butch Vig-produced debut album Gish. After signing to Virgin and supporting the likes of Jane’s Addiction, Guns N’ Roses, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, they reached the Billboard Top with their 1993 sophomore album Siamese Dream and released Smashing Pumpkins tickets for a world tour which also took in headline slots at Reading Festival and Lollapalloza. 1995’s Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness proved to be their mainstream breakthrough, peaking at No.1 in the US, selling 10 million copies, and spawning the hit singles, “1979,” “Tonight Tonight”, and the Grammy winning “Bullet With Butterfly Wings.” In 1996, Chamberlin was kicked out of the band over his drug use and replaced by Matt Walker, and following their contribution to the Batman & Robin soundtrack and 1998’s fourth studio LP, Adore, the band embarked on a 17-date North American tour which saw all the $2.8 million raised in sales of Smashing Pumpkins tickets go to charity. In 1999, Chamberlin unexpectedly rejoined the group while Wretzky was replaced with Hole’s Melissa Auf der Mar for the “Sacred and Profane” tour to promote 2000’s Machina/The Machines of God. After Corgan confirmed Smashing Pumpkins were to split, they played a four-hour farewell show at the same Cabaret Metro venue they’d began their career at and released the Rotten Apples compilation. Corgan and Chamberlin then teamed up to form the short-lived outfit Zwan with the former also recording 2005 solo effort, TheFutureEmbrace, before the pair returned with three new members under the Pumpkins guise in 2007. Comeback album, Zeitgeist, peaked at No.2 in the US whilst Smashing Pumpkins tickets went on sale for a 20th anniversary tour, but soon after Chamberlin left the group, leaving Corgan as the only original member. After initially dismissing the concept of a studio album, the band then released 44-track Teargarden by Kaleidyscope in 2009 and followed it up in 2012 with Oceania.
