Here's my question...

"Is the Billy doll available for purchase?"

This is great. I love that you are keeping us up to date on everything. Thanks to all of you. I didn't leave a question because I thought they had all been asked, but I did have something I've been wondering about for a while. What happened to the Gish box set idea? Will that ever happen? Any plans on reissues of other records? I know a MCIS deluxe with all the outtakes would be awesome.

Excellent blog Kerry!
Its great to see such prestigious musicians as yourselves taking the time to let all your fans have an insight into the creation of your new album.
I can't wait to hear the tracks!

If your taking more questions;
Do you (or any of the other band members) have a favourite Smashing Pumpkins track/album? Why?

Thanks for all the updates,
Tadhg.

You guys out did yourself! i highly recommend tossing that doll up for auction for charity or something if you are willing to part with it! it has to be one of the cutest things ever!

Jeremy said...

thanks, dudes! informative and entertaining, both. Looking forward to hearing the rest of the questions answered!

Continued thanks to Kerry for keeping this blog going... the whole project is fascinating to me, and i'm salivating at the thought hearing the first tunes in a month or so...

Daniel said...

Is Billy going to use his famous "Soul" Marshall Jcm 800 head? What makes that amp special?

EasternMind said...

Really happy to hear that Kimberly Kay got recorded before she supposedly "exploded!"

Hurray!

brendo_91 said...

Daniel, for starters it's modified to have a really clean poweramp section by changing the tube type to KT88, normally used in hifi for clarity, rather than in guitar amps where breakup is generally preferred.

The Billy doll's jacket looks like a cross between Austin Powers and The Future Embrace tour...

zaniele said...

thank you!

JP said...

I'm liking the positive vibes you're putting out. And Billy looks relaxed and healthy, and has lost some weight.

Do you guys have a rough idea when you're planning on releasing the first batch of tunes?

Robin Banks said...

Thanks so much guys, this is the funnest blog ever!

Benas said...

Is Billy planning to release MACHINA II in the near future? Because it wasn't officialy released, it is not possible to buy it.

Will Howie Weinberg be mastering again?

Thanks

noches + rock said...

Hi there, I'm Nicolas from Argentina. I'd like to know what bands are you actually listening to these days. I guess you people listen to a lot of different music but I'm wondering if maybe you have like some bands or albums to take as a reference to get a particular sound. Sorry about my english. Thanks!

Menrad said...

Great video blog, very funny, and BTW, I really like Billy's new outfit ;-)

Ajax - Sophocles said...

"Good people, and good food."

That cracked me up.

Rachel said...

LOL this was hilarious!

buzlink said...

Awesome!

Sunny J said...

Rock over London, Rock on Chicago!
Ford, Quality is Job One.

SPatrick said...

F*ck! I am so pumped to see Mike playing Gretsch and Ludwig!!
Great American drums with great American guitars, that killer combo is the essence of rock!
I too have an 80's Gretsch kit, a beautiful 50's "round badge" Gretsch as well and a few old Ludwig and Gretsch snares also, so I know EXACTLY where you're coming from!
I can't wait to hear these tracks and see you guys out on the road again here down under.
