Frank & Pat welcome actor, director, producer and not-so-secret Pumpkins fan MELISSA JOAN HART to the 'kast to discuss her history with the band, how her favorite musicians in real-life became her characters Clarissa and Sabrina's favorites as well, and that time she went clubbing with Billy Corgan and Courtney Love after a Late Night with Conan O' Brien appearance.

Today on the Pumpkast, Frank & Pat cover the 1993 Smashing Pumpkins opus Siamese Dream!

We dive deep into the Pumpkins' official album debut, from the recording process to the cover art to the little bell necklace Billy wore to bust ol' Butch Vig's chops.

(Recorded April 2020) Frank & Pat review The Smashing Pumpkins' 1989 self-titled demo cassette "The Smashing Pumpkins"! If only we had a time machine to go back and see those early Pumpkins shows (and do nothing else with the time travel technology)! We apologize for the less than perfect audio quality, we're still figuring out the best way to record remotely during these COVID times.  Follow us on the socials!

Originally recorded Feb 2020, this is a stand-alone re-release of our commentary and analysis of one of the Smashing Pumpkins' first demo cassettes, Nothing Ever Changes. Clean me out, Billy!

It's our first quarantine lockdown episode (Recorded April 10th)! A lot of technical aspects of recording remotely were unknown, so we used this episode to make sure we could record future eps and thankfully, it worked like a charm. Frank & Pat make their own 14 track Pumpkins mix and break down what they chose and why. The guidelines for the mixes? It had to be on Spotify (so we could share with the listeners) and that it only stuck to Smashing Pumpkins only (no solo or side projects). Hopefully you all enjoy this fun little ep before we dive back into the demo cassettes!  Follow us on the socials: Twitter: @PumpkinsPodcast Instagram: @smashingpumpkast Frank's Pumpkin Mix Pat's Pumpkin Mix

This episode serves up two hearty chunks of Pumpkin meat! First we talk to special guest Lauren Adams (The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Modern Family, Drunk History) about her Catholic confirmation retreat, vividly linked in memory to a CD copy of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. In the process we cover everything from dead bunnies to Sinéad O'Connor to the state of the Catholic church in Buffalo, NY. Next, Frank and Pat provide commentary and analysis while listening to one of the Smashing Pumpkins' first demo cassettes, Nothing Ever Changes.  Special thanks to YouTube users: Geroge17xx, acmslp, free8bit, Wasp Kap and Fuegoman96 Follow us on the socials!

Highlights include: The "3 Billy Rule" for concert seating, "Glass and The Ghost Children" with Jeff Schroeder gives goosebumps, Linda Strawberry and Meena Ysanne, and Billy gets a little miffed Re: D'arcy...

Frank & Pat welcome Eric D. Johnson (aka Fruit Bats) to the Pumpkast to talk about his brand new, full-album cover of Siamese Dream – out now on Turntable Kitchen! We had a great time talking to Eric about growing up in Chicago and watching the Pumpkins break big, what Siamese Dream means to him, and his approach to re-imagining the iconic album. We also discuss the Pumpkins' unique Midwest mysticism, the nexus of alternative radio and bonehead classic rock, and the freedom of having a "big tent" of musical influences. All that plus the boys dole out their first Pumpkast Seal of Approval (spoiler alert: this album is the recipient!). Apologies for the few moments of crackly audio. Enjoy!  You can also check out Fruit Bats' most recent releases here.  Follow us on the socials! Twitter: @PumpkinsPodcast Instagram: @smashingpumpkast Please rate and review us!
