Digitally remastered and expanded deluxe three disc (two CDs + DVD) edition of the
Alt-Rock quartet's 1991 debut album. Features the original album
remastered plus a bonus CD consisting of 15 previously unreleased or
alternate versions of Gish era songs, a bonus DVD containing a
previously unreleased 1990 live show from The Metro, six postcards
featuring never-before-seen band photos and a 24 page booklet with
lyrics, liner notes and track by track annotations by Billy Corgan.
Features 'I Am One', 'Rhinoceros', 'Siva' and more.

Upon the release of Gish--the group's debut--in the summer of 1991, more than one
rock aficionado hailed the Smashing Pumpkins as the best band to come
out of Chicago since Ministry. A bold statement, yes, but one backed up
by Billy Corgan's Hendrix-like riffs and searing signature guitar tone.
Intriguing songwriting is evidenced from the start as well, with the
driving, amped-up rock of "I Am One", "Siva", and "Tristessa" contrasted
with the soothingly eerie psychedelic flavour of "Rhinoceros" and
"Window Paine". Gish predates the band's movement towards the loop-based
electronic sounds heard in their late-1990s works, yet the seeds for
this transition are definitely apparent. Electro guru Tricky even
sampled the backbeat from "Suffer" in the tributary "Pumpkin" on his
sex-soaked Maxinquaye. Butch Vig (Garbage) shows off his chops as
producer and cultivates signature dramatic moods on Gish, which helped
put the Smashing Pumpkins on the map as one of the most important
alt-rock bands of the '90s--much to the delight of the decade's
disenfranchised youth.

I remember reading a desert-island-albums list by Billy Corgan in 1993 that was so
scarily like my own musical arc-- pop/prog/metal nerd discovers goth,
Jane's Addiction, and My Bloody Valentine-- that I couldn't have been
more designed for Smashing Pumpkins hyperfandom if I tried. Like no one
before him, Corgan made those influences work. As Canadian writer
Jennifer Nine once put it in Melody Maker, you got a sense that he was
the kind of guy who worked out every last transcription from Guitar
Player in the 1980s and then actually did something with it. It helped
that the rest of the band had their own skills, especially in the case
of Jimmy Chamberlin, a jazz/hard-rock drum freak let loose on alt-rock

Alt-rock radio, at its height of commercial trendsetting, enabled the
Pumpkins to not merely survive but thrive. There, Corgan could have his
cake and eat it too, daring people to get annoyed at his starlust and
reacting in kind while further building up his ambitions. He got his
band signed to a major label and used the fig leaf of a corporate indie
release for Gish, scored a prime spot on the Seattle-focused Singles
soundtrack with "Drown", essentially went "Haters gonna hate" with
Siamese Dream's first single "Cherub Rock", and got petulant when any
other acts or writers accused him of protesting too much. And not just
Pavement, either: "You hurt me deeply in my heart," he once infamously
pouted to Kim Thayil before a 1994 Australian concert, following which
the Pumpkins went on "to play the best set anybody has ever heard them

All of which goes some distance toward explaining why both reissues of
Gish and Siamese Dream-- appropriately loaded with rarities, DVD
bonuses, fancy packaging, and often-impressionistic song-for-song liner
notes by Corgan-- remain remarkable though unequal listens. Even in
1991, Gish felt like something that started off well with songs like
"Siva" and "Rhinoceros" but meandered a bit toward the end. Corgan's
voice never sounded as lost in his music as it does here, and most of
the emphasis is on the band's collective performance: Chamberlin's
powerful, fluid drumming, Darcy Wretzky's strong basslines, and that
thick, chunky glaze of guitars.

The rarities disc contains a few never-before-heard numbers, a few that
have long circulated among fanatics (the Corgan-sung version of
"Daydream" is a keeper), and a handful of remixed selections (including
their best full-on rock epic, "Starla") that first surfaced on a
full-length release via the odds-and-ends release Pisces Iscariot. These
tracks do a better job of showcasing the band's various sonic sides
than Gish itself. The DVD, a multi-camera cut from a live show at the
Metro in Chicago almost a year prior to Gish's release, shows that the
band already had their exact arrangements pretty well down, as well as a
worshipping fanbase. The highlights include Corgan and James Iha's
heavily long hair, curious fashion choices all around, and set-closing
covers of Steppenwolf and Blue Öyster Cult; the video quality is pretty
good and the sound mix, if heavily favoring the vocals, beats out most
bootlegs of the time.

In contrast to Gish's steady flow, Siamese Dream crashes out of the
gate. "Cherub Rock" remains an absolutely stellar opener with a sense of
pure sonic melodrama, thanks to Chamberlin's circus-act drum
introduction, a tight clip of guitars quickly matched by equally nimble
bass, a volcanic blast of a guitar lead, and then a shift to a woozy,
still-building sprawl. And all this before the first verse even starts.
Throw in everything that followed-- the overt MBV worship of "Hummer",
the country-rock-tinged wanderlust of "Mayonaise", "Soma"'s update of
Prince's "The Beautiful Ones" for a new decade, and inevitably the
MTV/radio hits "Today", "Disarm", and "Rocket"-- and no matter your take
on its mastermind or his divisive whining/sighing vocals, it's an
embarrassment of musical riches.

There's also the fact that the album's studio personnel was as
essentially stripped down as the White Stripes; Corgan, frantically
taking charge in the midst of band dysfunction, recorded nearly
everything himself aside from the drums, and he'd probably have handled
those too if he could. Siamese Dream's songs don't blend into each
other, but some transitions exist; each stands out in a brilliant
sequence, forming perhaps the best concept album they ever made.

One of the main things people complained about was exactly what made the
band click even further. If Corgan's early lyrics were classic
self-centered/self-righteous/self-pitying teenagerdom run amock, he
always had an ear for hooks, metaphors, and deft summaries (thus, on
"Mayonaise": "Fool enough to almost be it/ Cool enough to not quite see
it"). It's catnip for when you have it bad, no matter how minuscule your
problems might really be, and any number of later bands (My Chemical
Romance most obviously, and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart most
recently) took plenty of notice.

As for the many rarities, more Pisces Iscariot remixes and other demos
and alternate versions take a bow, including a six-minute version of
"Siamese Dream" itself (the original B-side version was a shorter and
murkier take that ran under three minutes) and twin instrumentals
"U.S.A." and "U.S.S.R.". The DVD is the most worthwhile addition of
either reissue; taken from another Metro show a couple of weeks after
Siamese Dream's release, it vividly illustrates how far the band had
come in the three years since Gish: It showcases their more varied
sound, Corgan's keener sense for playing to the crowd (there are flashes
of his and Iha's underrated sense of humor), a killer setlist drawing
on both albums (plus "Starla" and "Drown"), and brilliant sound and
performances throughout. If Corgan's voice shows strain at many points,
the crowd shots are especially entertaining, with endless moshpits and
crowdsurfers during most of the loud points and plenty of the slow ones.

The full story of the band's existence has plenty of ups and downs to go
through, and there are more reissues to come to spell this out, even as
the current version of the band moves along according to Corgan's own
cryptic impulses. Yet these two releases still resonate, as both a
nostalgia fix underscoring how it was so easy to fall for Smashing
Pumpkins in the first place, and as the best introductions to their
music any newcomer could want.
