They used to issue 2 European singles for every song to spread around all the b-sides; now that the singles market has died down they release them this way. No real difference. I'd rather them do this then not release material. People act like simply because someone's a fan of a band they are forced to buy every release, which certainly isn't the case.

It's OK but nothing special. The song Pox is really great tho, imo.

They're solid acoustic songs.  Nothing amazing, but yeah - a bunch of things that could have tempered Zeitgeist a bit.

 Billy Corgan's doing some weird PSA about child abuse for MTVu, basically telling about how his dad beat the crap outta him.

I know this is tangental to my last post, and perhaps in bad taste since her video is about her eating disorder, but whatever Brittany Snow is doing to stay in shape is working marvelously. Quite fetching.

Yeah, it's no huge secret, but it's weird to see someone talk so bluntly and nonchalantly about their own abuse. Like, almost uncomfortable.

"credibility with fans" hahahahahahaha
 
 Smashing Pumpkins sue Virgin Records
 
 LOS ANGELES - The Smashing Pumpkins are suing Virgin Records, saying the record label has illegally used their name and music in promotional deals that hurt the band's credibility with fans.
 
 In a breach-of-contract lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, the rockers said they have "worked hard for over two decades to accumulate a considerable amount of goodwill in the eyes of the public," and that Virgin's use of the band in a "Pepsi Stuff" promotion with Amazon.com and Pepsi Co. threatens their reputation for "artistic integrity."
 
 Virgin released the Smashing Pumpkins' music for more than 17 years, but the only active agreement between the two parties, the lawsuit claims, is a deal granting Virgin permission to sell digital downloads of the band's songs. The agreement does not give Virgin the right to use the band in promotional campaigns to sell outside products, the lawsuit said.
 
 The band members said they would "never grant such authority to Virgin, or any other entity."
 
 An after-hours call to Virgin Records wasn't immediately returned.
 
 The lawsuit demands that Virgin pay with the profits earned in the promotion and asks for an injunction against using the Pumpkins' name or music in the future.
