Billy Corgan contributes to OOOM project of Auf Der Maur

Update by Arthur van Pelt

Melissa Auf Der Maur, who just released her multimedia project OOOM (Out Of Our Minds) a few days ago, reveals in an interview today with the Toronto Sun that Billy Corgan also contributed to her project.

“Left off the record is a collaboration with Billy Corgan, with whom Auf der Maur played bass in the ’90s band Smashing Pumpkins.”


Billy Corgan’s old band: Remove That Bible

Article by Arthur van Pelt

May we call this the biggest Smashing Pumpkins news in several years? A few of our members found out that Billy Corgan, for several months in the early 1980s, played the bass in a band called Remove That Bible! That band also went by the name The Marinetti’s in later years. But more important, a tape from that era called Ancient Times, has surfaced. It was handed over to us by 1 of Billy’s Bible bandmates called Jerome Greenway. We will bring an exclusive interview with Jerome soon too.

Meanwhile, on our Forum you can find a download of all the songs from that tape! We can clearly hear Billy Corgan wring the bass hard and loud in this newly discovered 1980s band, and it is not hard to imagine that Remove That Bible evolved into The Marked. Tracklist of the tape:

01 Dance V1
02 The Will Of God
03 Wastelands
04 Dance V2
05 Immediate Freshness
06 EO
07 Cherie Cherie
08 Dance
