New bassist. [May. 11th, 2010|09:44 am]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
THE SMASHING PUMPKINS welcome a new member to the band: bassist Nicole Fiorentino.



The Los Angeles musician has been in such bands as Veruca Salt, Spinerette, Radio Vago, Twilight Sleep and Light FM. The latter group appeared at a Los Angeles benefit concert last November headlined by the Billy Corgan - led band Backwards Clock Society (proceeds from that show went to Laura Masura, the former head of the Smashing Pumpkins fan club who was injured in a motorcycle crash).

Fiorentino will perform with the Pumpkins on their world tour later this year, a trek that will include headline performances at two Summersonic festivals in Japan: August 7 in Tokyo (Marine Stadium) and August 8 in Osaka (Maishima).

Recently, the Pumpkins released - online, for free - the swirling, psychedelicized "Astral Planes," the final song to be issued for the EP TEARGARDEN BY KALEIDYSCOPE VOL.1: SONGS FOR A SAILOR; it is the first of an eventual 11 EPs to be sold in record stores. TEARGARDEN BY KALEIDYSCOPE VOL. 1: SONGS FOR A SAILOR is set for official release on May 25th through Martha's Music/Rocket Science Ventures. This very limited edition collector's EP will be packaged in a beautiful silk - screened wooden box. Each box will contain a 4 - song CD, a vinyl 7" and a hand - carved obelisk from the shadows of the Incan ruins in Machu Picchu.

Why are you wearing that ridiculous hat? For the love of God, Billy, why don't you ask your pretty new bassist for some fashion tips?
Other than that I have no complaints.

I don't know if you check this account much. I didn't even know it existed until recently. I was wondering what channels I would need to go through to work on a poem insert for your next EP.

I do this more as a writer than a fan, but I've been influenced by your writing and I believe my writing maybe able accent your own.

All I need to know is who can I contact and send some examples of my poetry to see if they strike you.

Just so we're clear I don't really want to meet up with you, as I believe all communication can be done via phone, e-mail and snail mail. One main reason is I live in British Columbia, Canada and don't like to fly.

I hope this reaches you and that you at least take the time to think about.

Cheers,

Kent

P.S. I don't have a Live Journal Account, but if one is needed for further communication I will sign up for one.
