A Smashing Pumpkins podcast hosted by Frank Garcia-Hejl and Patrick O'Brien. Wanna go for a ride?
Zeason's Greetings! We're kicking off Zwan Zeason with a lil' introduction to the band and its history, and then cover their "first official, ticketed show," which took place at The Glass House in Pomona, CA on November 16th, 2001 (listen to it HERE).
We of course get right into the impressive musical pedigrees of each individual band member, our personal connections to their various pre- and post-Zwan projects, and recall how we felt when it all came together to form ZWAN (albeit still a Pre-Paz Zwan). We also define the meaning of "Cool Jesus" music, debate the merits of Zwan Live vs. Zwan Recorded, and agree that "Chrysanthemum" would have been a killer single.
All that plus the big questions: How glorious is "Glorious"? What would the world be like if Zwan had stuck around? How great would an official SP/Corgan lyric site be? And who wants some "Tuesday Wine"? All in all, your hosts found this show to be a strong statement of an official debut by the band. Seriously, you have to hear the live shows to get the FULL context of Zwan. Ziz the Zeason, after all!
