Smashing Pumpkins - Gish (2LP)
This product is currently sold out.
Arriving several months before Nirvana's Nevermind, the Smashing Pumpkins' debut album, Gish, which was also produced by Butch Vig, was the first shot of the alternative revolution that transformed the rock & roll landscape of the '90s. While Nirvana was a punk band, the Smashing Pumpkins and guitarist/vocalist Billy Corgan are arena rockers, co-opting their metallic riffs and epic art rock song structures with self-absorbed lyrical confessions. There's no denying Corgan's gift for arrangements and he continually layer guitars brilliantly throughout this debut for maximum effect.
