A Smashing Pumpkins podcast hosted by Frank Garcia-Hejl and Patrick O'Brien. Wanna go for a ride?
We've veered off into solo project territory again today with the Jimmy Chamberlin Complex and their 2005 alterna-jazz-rock-fusion album, "Life Begins Again." More Fugazi than Dave Brubeck, more Slint grooves than brass sections, it was a "jazz" album we weren't ready for at the time but (as full-grown GENRE-DEFYING adults) we really f**king dig now.
First off: Jimmy's cookin’ it up so fast, flippin' sonic flapjacks in flavors we hadn't quite tasted before giving this album a proper listen. We heap praise on the incredible vocal stylings of Catherine Wheel's Rob Dickinson... but Frank’s got murder on the mind when thinking of a Catherine Wheel/Smashing Pumpkins bill. All that plus the "Set the Ray to Jerry"-esque dreaminess of the Billy Corgan-sung "Loki Cat," the unfortunate feeling of a song becoming a late-night stress loop, and the benefits of having a Righteous Brother as a godfather.
But what we really want to know is: If Jimmy-baby's laying organ tracks on this bad boy... where was Ignoffo’s invite?!
