As the Smashing Pumpkins prepare to release their second EP instalment of 'Teagarden by Kaleidyscope' tomorrow (23rd November 2010), front-man Billy Corgan has reignited his band's 15-year feud with American indie rockers Pavement, reports NME.
Speaking before the SMASHING PUMPKINS were due to share the bill with PAVEMENT at Brazil's 'Planeta Terra Festival' on 20th November 2010, Corgan said via his Twitter page, "It's funny how those who pointed the big finger of 'sell out' are the biggest offenders now... yawn. They have no love", before adding, "By the way, we'll be the band up there playing NEW songs because we have the love". The long running feud began in 1994, when PAVEMENT mocked Corgan's band in their song 'Range Life', and the Pumpkins' frontman didn't seem overjoyed that the two bands would be appearing together in 2010, saying, "It's gonna be one of those New Orleans-type funerals. I say that because they represent the death of the alternative dream, and we follow with the affirmation of life part".
The SMASHING PUMPKINS new EP, 'Vol II: The Solstice Bare', includes the tracks 'Freak', 'The Fellowship', and 'Tom Tom', and is released tomorrow, however, some of the songs are available now as free downloads.
