Happy New Year, Pumpkinheads! In honor of something no one's been able to do in forever, we kick off 2021 with the first-ever "Pumpkast Goes To The Movies!" Grab your popcorn and nippled Bat-Suits because we're talkin' the underrated Pumpkin gems from the soundtrack to 1997's Batman & Robin (plus single b-sides & demos). Frank and Pat discuss the bridge between Mellon Collie and Adore and how the seeds of CYR may have been sprouting even back then. We also bat-gab about the EITBITE music video, some other tracks on the soundtrack, Mr. Freeze's "cool" puns and a secret collab between Billy and Trent Reznor that sounds like the B-52s? All that plus Electronica's 90's rise, Billy viewing Missy Elliot and Wu-Tang as the future of music and the art of still being stoked on the Pumpkins even when your friends jump ship. Even Howard the Duck peeks his beak in for a second. Its 2021! Go as Joe, Bat-heads! Follow us on the socials: Instagram: @smashingpumpkast Twitter: @PumpkinsPodcast Please rate and review us!
