In November 2018, American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins released their tenth studio album, Shiny and Oh So Bright Vol 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun. The NME remarked: “The heavier moments refuse to act as a sledegehammer of alt-rock pastiche, which this record could so easily have been. Instead, it’s a showcase of songcraft that’s allowed to breathe and reveal itself. Bring on volume two. The dream lives on.”

  2. How does Big O keep finding these bozos. Jesus H Christ

    By Smashmouth on Aug 24, 2019

  3. Not my cup of tea . But I’m sure others like them .

    By David on Aug 24, 2019

  4. This ain’t shit . When I say we want motherfuckin Classic Rock ‘ I mean seventies rock . The Who ‘ Stones ‘ Purple ‘ Floyd ‘ Cactus ‘ Aurosmith ‘ Doors ‘ Credence ‘ Allman Brothers band ‘ Heart ‘ Frampton ‘ ‘ Sabbath and especially the Mighty Zeppelin. Fuckin get it right motherfuckers . No modern bands or queer / coon shit . Get with the program.

    By Derrick on Aug 24, 2019

  5. Some Led Zep would hit the spot .

    By Derrick on Aug 24, 2019

  6. THANKS.
    Always liked the Halloween Vandals.

    By John on Aug 24, 2019

  7. Derrick, dont forget some Yardbirds with Jimmy Page

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 24, 2019

  8. Of course Anti . Yardbirds was fuckin great . Page ‘ Clapton. Also as a teenager I remember the shocking blue and curved air . Some smokin hot girl singers .. They could really rock out . Didn’t need to wear skirts up to their ass cheeks back then .

    By Derrick on Aug 25, 2019

  9. I’m sorry, maybe I’m narrow minded but this stuff just doesn’t compare to the great bands from the sixties and seventies even eighties. I guess like most boomers I’m spoiled. We came of age in a great era . However I feel some recent artists could have been bigger if they had come along back then when record companies and media promoted good music over trash .

    By Bill on Aug 25, 2019

  10. Antichrist and Derrick, I’ve mentioned the late Jason Molina several times but it seems hardly anyone has heard of him . Wanted both your takes ? To me he was a music genius who unfortunately came along at the wrong time his songs are lyrically brilliant. Not exactly hard rock , much like acoustic Neil Young

    By Bill on Aug 25, 2019

  11. His records didn’t sell much , but he put out almost twenty albums in 15 years under the names Songs Ohia and Magnolia Electric CO . He suffered from depression and substance abuse . Sadly died in 2013 from multiple organ failure . Very sad ending.

    By Bill on Aug 25, 2019

  12. Only 39 years old

    By Bill on Aug 25, 2019

  13. Ce n’est pas vraiment ma tasse de thé mais le groupe de BILLY CORGAN reste un bon groupe de rock alternatif.
    Il vaut mieux écouter THE SMASHING PUMPKINS que certains artistes du Glastonbury Festival que vous avez récemment programmer.

    By Bernard (France) on Aug 25, 2019

  14. Bill, I’m a baby boomer myself and with all due respect, I’ve never heard of him. I’m sure there were groups I grew up with like Cactus, Frijid Pink, Juicy Lucy and Sir Lord Baltimore that you may not hard of either

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 25, 2019

  15. I performed with Leona Lewis at the Beijing Olympics
    On this day in 2008, I performed at the Olympic closing ceremony in Beijing where the baton was passed on, so to speak, to London 2012. The cast members had been secretly rehearsing in London and Beijing.

    Armed with the double-decker bus, ballet, hip hop dancers and David Beckham, Leona Lewis and I performed ‘Whole Lotta Love’ which was augmented by Philip Shepherd’s string arrangement and Penderecki-like swoops.

    Along with many, I had been intoxicated by Leona’s performances on The X Factor and I was curious as to how she would approach ‘Whole Lotta Love’ - her classy delivery was sultry and impeccable and her visual performance, dazzling, to say the least!

    This was, without doubt, one of the high points of my career and it was one happy man who performed with such a remarkable talent.

    By Jimmy Page on Aug 25, 2019

  16. Derrick, don’t forget the time when the Yardbirds had Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page on fucking lead at the same time. Happening Ten Years Time Ago, the double solos were great. Are you kidding me? I never got to see the Yardbirds, too young. But watching the videos of the Yardbirds always puts a smile on my face

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 25, 2019

  17. Yes I’ve definitely heard of Frigid Pink . Cactus for sure.. Pinks house or the rising sun better than the animals version.

    By Bill on Aug 25, 2019

  18. Totally agree. Frijid Pinks’ version blows away The Animals version. All that fuzz and wah wah

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 25, 2019

  19. Really too bad that people haven’t heard of Molina . That’s typical of the problem with the modern music scene . Molina ‘ Neko Case ‘ have cult Followings , while Miley , Beiber and their ilk plus all these rappers are household names . Something is not right about that .

    By Bill on Aug 25, 2019

  20. Also miss great lead guitar in music. It seems to have disappeared.

    By Bill on Aug 25, 2019

  21. I don’t like no modern fuckin shit myself. Give me LED Zeppelin and Cactus any day . Also like fridged pink

    By Derrick on Aug 25, 2019

  22. I fuckin forgot about Beck and Page being in the yardbirds at the same time Some great shit there .

    By Derrick on Aug 25, 2019

  23. Yeah man. The only problem was Jeff Beck was so fucking moody. But it all worked out in the end. Page reformed the Yardbirds to the New Yardbirds and eventually the mighty Zeppelin. I think Keith Moon or John Entwhistle came up with the name. He said that the new group would go over like a lead balloon. Hence, the name Led Zeppelin. :-)

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 25, 2019

  24. Bill, we grew up in a special time. I don’t think the music we listened to will ever experience the interest and following that we appreciated. All the great guitar players were born in the 1940’s and we had the pleasure of listening. Fucking Hendrix, Alvin Lee, Clapton, Beck, Page, Blackmore, Leslie West, Steve Marriott, Peter Frampton, Santana, Townsend, Mick Taylor. Never again we will see this kind of talent.

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 25, 2019

  25. It’s like the 1969 Woodstock festival. Look how many times they tried to recreate the event. Woodstock was a one of kind musical event. Never again will those moments in time be recreated.

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 25, 2019

  26. Young people today sadly have very little interest in music anymore.

    By Bill on Aug 25, 2019

  27. Remember how we used to listen to great rock music ? Vinyl of course, stretched out on the couch passing around a joint with the sound blasting from a huge set of Bose or Sinsui speakers or Cerwin Vega VS 150s . Kids today just listen through their iPhone headphones. Not the same experience.

    By Bill on Aug 25, 2019

  28. Vividly remember how awesome it felt listening to Zep IV on my 150s when Black Dog explodes after that quiet opening riff and takes off like a run away train . Man you just don’t get that experience anymore. Rock will never be that good again. Also Daltrys screem at the end of who’s next . Like an orgasim man.

    By Bill on Aug 25, 2019

  29. Fuckin agree Bill . The only thing that’s the same is those motherfuckin leaders and politicians. Corrupt bastards. Meet the new boss ‘ same as the old boss like the fuckin who sang back in 71 . Ain’t nothin changed on that front . Only thing changed is music is shitty today .

    By Derrick on Aug 25, 2019

  30. Even audio / stereo equipment isn’t as good as it was 40 50 years ago . These. New audio /. video receivers can’t hold a candle to the ones back then . Everything is mass produced and geared more toward home theater than loud rock . You’ll blow the whole thing if you hook up a pair of seventies monster 4,ohms to them . Remember my old pioneer from 74 . You could crank that thing up

    By Bill on Aug 25, 2019

  31. You can’t find a good amp or receiver anymore unless you pay close to a grand .companies outsource everything these days . Everything is made in Taiwan or China or someplace.

    By CJ on Aug 25, 2019

  32. Cheep labor . More $$$ for the companies.

    By CJ on Aug 25, 2019

  33. And a rip off of the consumers

    By CJ on Aug 25, 2019

  34. Hey Bill and Derrick, how bout the song by Steppenwolf called The Monster. It’s still so relevant today amazing

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 25, 2019

  35. Yeah fuckin Steppenwolf man . Awesome band . Kinda hits the spot now with Capt America Peter Fonda gone

    By Derrick on Aug 26, 2019

  36. Gotta watch that flick again. Awesome film with awesome songs

    By Derrick on Aug 26, 2019

  37. Also anti Remember Midnight Cowboy ? Great film . That scene when Joe Buck talks to that religious nutcase is funny as shit classic.

    By Derrick on Aug 26, 2019

  38. Midnight Cowboy with Jon Voight and Ratso Rizzo with Dustin Hoffman. Unfortunately, Dustin is a Jew. I never was a big Hoffman fan. Loved Steve McQueen in The Great Escape and The Magnificent SEven with Yul Bryner. Hollywood should never make remakes of such great movies. The remakes of The Manchurian Candidate and The Taking of the Pelham 123 all sucked compared to the originals

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 26, 2019

  39. Robert Shaw in Jaws, The Sting and Taking of the Pelham. All great movies. I love the gambling scenne in The STing when he keeps calling Doyle Lonagan - Lonahan and Linaman .LOL. The name is Lonagan. Doyle Lonagan. Dont ever forget it. Ya folla

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 26, 2019

  40. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8g_JidtNCo

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 26, 2019

  41. I remember having these 2 gigantic Polk speakers with a Telefunken turntable, Adcom amp pre amp and tuner. Before that I had an all in one Pioneer receiver bought from Crazy Eddies in Brookyln. Those were the fucking days. I remember buying and I still have the Live Yardbirds featuring Jimmy Page at the Anderson Theatre

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 26, 2019

  42. Great actor Hoffman ‘ but don’t like him personally. He slapped Meryl Streep in a scene from Kramer vs Kramer . Meryl said he broke a glass after he got pissed off and it went flyin . Could have put her eye out . Also read where he tried to rape some young actresses backstage and other women has come out with stuff . The fact that he’s another motherfuckin jew bastard explains it . Right Anti ?

    By Derrick on Aug 26, 2019

  43. Weinstein ‘ Epstein ‘ Hoffman. All Jews . All predators of young women . Says it all Derrick and Antichrist.

    By HHH on Aug 26, 2019

  44. I personally loved Marathon Man , with Hoffman and Lawrence Olivier . Great movie . I still get chills when I go to the dentist. Olivier was one of the best villains ever as Nazi war criminal Zell . I kept hearing is it safe in nightmares as a kid .

    By HHH on Aug 26, 2019

  45. Both of u guys are right. The Jew loves to be a predator of people and monetary. I also believe that the Jews on Wall Street have made a ton of money on insider trading. The Jew analyst in mergers and acquisitions has a lawyer that is his rabbi and now you have a Jew conglomerate. The Jew will have inside knowledge of a stock that is being bought and he will make a killing.

    By Jimmy Page on Aug 26, 2019

  46. My bad. Above comment was made by me. Not Jimmy

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 26, 2019

  47. Blacks and Jews . Abusing women must be in their DNAs The difference is Jews are much smarter . Blacks actually need Whitey to survive outside the jungle .

    By HHH on Aug 26, 2019

  48. Theres a show on CNBC called AMerican Greed. I would say that 85%% of the people running Ponzi scams are Hebrew. Fucking Bernie Madoff and the Wolf of Wall Street Jordan Belfort for starters

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 26, 2019

  49. Then you have all these other shows with Jew lawyers, doctors, accountants all raping companies like Gordon Gekko. The sad part is that they stole many peoples’ retirement that they worked so hard their entire life and the Jew comes along and does his Ponzi scheme

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 26, 2019

  50. Thats right Jews dont hit their wives but I know for a fact that Orthodox Jews and rabbis love little boys and prostitutes. Niggers are fucking monkeys that happen to walk upright instead on all fours. Bastards

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 26, 2019

  51. “1979″ One of the greatest songs of all time. Thanks Big O! There is plenty of “Great” new music out there, just need to broaden your horizons and find it for yourself. FM radio is dead unless you listen to college radio depending on who the jock is of course.

    By BigE on Aug 26, 2019

  52. Sure there is good music today , but why should it be hard to find ? Why is Miley Cyrus at the Grammys, Glastonbury and all the awards shows ? And hardly anyone has heard of Neko Case and Jason Molina ? When and why did the media decide to give garbage a high profile while ignoring true talent? True there’s always been trash , but not at the exclusion of the great stuff .

    By Bill on Aug 26, 2019

  53. Indie Artists today have taken to selling CDs at their shows . That’s how bad the record companies have gotten. Artists have to tour their asses off to eat beans

    By Bill on Aug 26, 2019

  54. Unless your Miley or the rappers who own mansions

    By Bill on Aug 26, 2019

  55. Hey Bill-
    During the ’60s music executives were a stuffy bunch. They were an old guard of stuffy shirts and ties only with an eye on the profit margin. Or as Zappa describes them “cigar-chomping old guys” ut one benefit of this was that they “looked at the product and said, ‘I don’t know. Who knows what it is? Record it, stick it out. If it sells, alright!’”

    Zappa declares that “we were better off with those guys, than we are with the hip, young executives,” making the calls on what gets made and what gets put out to the public. While Zappa is talking about the fast-paced movement of the record industry n the eighties, the same can be said of today’s music scene.

    Bands and artists can get their music on to a range of streaming sites without any help from a label, but to actually get seen, heard and paid, they still need the help of the industry. Those decisions, as to who gets the support, who gets the tour, who gets the merch deal, still lives in the hands of those “hip” execs.

  56. Bill- your anger should be aimed at the record companies. See my comment above.

    By sking on Aug 28, 2019

  57. Thanks Bill for the tip on Jason Molina. Never heard before. Gave a shot…really good!!!

    By neto on Sep 6, 2019

  58. Actually my daughter in her twenties turned me on to Molina. The fact he never found a mainstream audience is a travesty.

    By Bill on Sep 6, 2019

  59. Thanks for the Zappa videos. He pretty much echoes what I’ve been saying for years , mainly that MTV started the destruction of the record industry. It became more about dancing and imagery than the music . You had to basically be a pretty boy or girl to find success. The. Rap came along and polluted the waters even more . Miming and dancing to piped in music became the concert experience that young people today have been weened on . Look good in a short skirt or have a pretty boy face and you’re a star .

    By Bill on Sep 6, 2019

  60. Madonna and Cyndi Lauper were the poster girls in the eighties, then came other clones / Britney / Miley / Taylor etc plus Beiber and now Billie Elish. While the Jason Molina’s played in dives for meal money and begged people to buy theirCDs at the door .

    By Bill on Sep 6, 2019

  61. Zappa’s description about the old cigar chomping record executives from the past was also right on . They knew nothing about music so they took more chances , and risks . These days no one takes risks anymore. Everyone plays it safe .

    By Bill on Sep 6, 2019

  62. Bill, your daughter sounds very cunty

    By Derrick on Sep 6, 2019

  63. Bill, I recall seeing Roger Daltry on a TV talk show back in the early days of music videos and when asked what he thought of them he said,” A video can help you to understand what a song is about…but a really good song doesn’t need a video.”

    By sking on Sep 7, 2019

  64. I appreciate the post Big O!! Smashing Pumpkins were one of the top bands of the 90’s. Great to get a show on their reunion tour. Thanks so much.
