Pavement vs. Pumpkins

Apparently a new Smashing Pumpkins CD is slated to be released as soon as Billy gets whatever lineup of the increasingly irrelevant band back together so they can implode again once the egos clash and the fans get ripped off by buying another worthless vanity project and shelling out a wad of cash to see a band that never sounded good live.

The track list was released, which included a projected song title “7 Shades of Black.” This is interesting to me in light of the old war between the Pumpkins and Pavement. And Pavement, of course, all ready mined this territory with the great lyric “Because there’s forty different shades of black” more than ten years ago. Billy, stop with the stealing, dude.
