A Smashing Pumpkins podcast hosted by Frank Garcia-Hejl and Patrick O'Brien. Wanna go for a ride?
An album your boys love with all their hearts, it had to be split into two parts! That's right, Pumpkinheads, Frank and Pat are finally covering 1998's "Adore." This two-part exploration visits a dark time in the Pumpkins' history, during which Jimmy's exit and personal loss signaled the beginning of the end (is the beginning?) of the band as we knew it. While a polarizing album for Pumpkins fans at the time, the daring Adore – or in Billy-ism, "A Door" – has aged into one of the most beloved albums in the SP catalog.
In Part One we immerse ourselves in the emotional highs and lows of an album that feels like love, loss and a bleak, serene comedown from designer drugs. On our journey we visit the Roxbury Guys, take a detour into Yosemite Sam Elliot territory and work through our misguided judgments of the VH1 Fashion Awards association.
All that plus Frank attempts to read Billy's re-issue liner notes aloud and Pat discovers he's related to most of the Adore tracklist. We'd be crestfallen if you missed this one!
