The Smashing Pumpkins
The Smashing Pumpkins
THE SMASHING PUMPKINS have created one of the most acclaimed bodies of work in musical history having sold more than 30 million albums, and won multiple Grammy awards in the process. Formed in Chicago in 1988, they released Gish, their influential and platinum debut in 1991, which was followed by albums including the nine-time platinum Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness and the four-time platinum Siamese Dream, as well as the platinum certified 1998 album Adore. The pivotal group’s many hits defined the alternative music era and continue to resonate on modern rock radio, influencing a whole new generation. The PUMPKINS returned in 2007 with their acclaimed sixth album Zeitgeist and they have since remained on the cutting edge of music and technology with various online releases. OCEANIA is their 7th studio album and the band will support it with a global tour in 2012.
Fancy Space People
Fancy Space People began with the unlikely partnering of quirky solo chanteuse No-Ra Keyes, formerly of the Centimeters, and Don Bolles, drummer of legendary punk icons the Germs. Fancy Space People's songs range from
moody Mellotron space hymns to glitter rock stompers, featuring elements of psychedelic prog, 60's girl group, and 70's Krautrock, together reminding one of T. Rex, Bowie, Abba, Sparks, and even Amon Duul II. The group has
already shared the stage with a variety of acts, ranging from 70's glam rockers The Sweet to eccentric indie singer/song-writer Ariel Pink. Already they have attracted such enthusiastic collaborators as Billy Corgan of the
Smashing Pumpkins, Mars Williams from the Psychedelic Furs, and Belgian Synth Witch Shazzula Nebula. Their eponymous debut vinyl EP was mixed and recorded by Kerry Brown (Smashing Pumpkins, Kelley Deal, The Frogs) & Kevin
Dippold (Smashing Pumpkins.) Their eponymous debut 12" EP is available now through Starry Records. Order the new 12 " EP from Starry Records. "Fancy Space People is the musical version of unprotected sex while on ecstasy--a little bit scary but it just feels so
POSITIVE," wrote Drew Denny in the LA Weekly, 6/27/11.
