Smashing Pumpkins' "Teargarden By Kaleidyscope" Project Begins

Despite the fact that Billy Corgan is the only original member in the current version of Smashing Pumpkins. The new lineup has taken on quite a project. According to the website, the band has plans to issue a 44 song album for free. The album, titled "Teargarden By Kaleidyscope" is based on the Fool's Journey in the progress of the Tarot with four main characters/stages: The Child, The Fool, The Skeptic & The Mystic. They have already posted 2 songs (A Song For A Son, Widow Wake My Mind) on their website, and below. True to his word, the songs are free with no strings attached. You don't have to enter any information or join any mailing list. So grab them...

For those who would like to eventually buy the album, the plan so far is to issue limited edition 4 song EPs, making for a total of 11 EPs when they are finally done. Also, a boxed set will be available as well, but I think we're getting a bit ahead of ourselves, they still have 42 songs to complete. Keep checking the site, as they hope to release a song a month. I'm not really that impressed with the 2 songs so far, but being from Chicago I refuse to lose faith in a band that was so fantastic when I was growing up.
