It's actually my friend's brother, but he's kind of my friend. Anyway, there's a cover contest going on on the official Smashing Pumpkins website. My good friend's brother submitted his cover of Spaceboy. If I didn't legitimately like his cover I wouldn't be whoring it out for some votes.

You can hear his cover here:

You can vote here:

I haven't contributed a lot to the board, but I do try to vote for people anytime they're trying to win a free dinner or something. I don't even know what the prizes for this are, but I'd like to see him get some more votes. He's behind two other people right now, but it's really early in the voting.

I voted.

He is tied for second.. but I'm a huge pumpkins fan... and it was pretty fucking good

I'm eagerly waiting for the melloncollie & adore reissues (adore is my favorite album)

Hmm, I'm not familiar with the original and it didn't do much for me, but I voted anyway, because transit grinder seems like a good guy.

Are the Gish and SD reissues only available through the website? I've been looking for them in stores but haven't seen them anywhere.

Thank you all very much for listening and voting!

Also I love that Adore is your favorite album. I don't see that claimed too often. I loved it, too.

I know it's on amazon - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005MW8CLK/?tag=wackbagcom-20

Adore was an amazing album, I know it didn't sell well, but to me it was corgan's best work.

I had high hopes for his solo album and the re-formation... sadly.. they have never recaptured that magic, although kaleidoscope isn't bad.

He is in love with ESD so you need to take that with a grain of salt.

What was your favorite song? I loved The Tale of Dusty and Pistol Pete.

Thanks again to everyone that voted. He's down by 11 now, that Luna cover must rock.
