Corgan’s Zwan Preps Album

Zwan debut record near completion

Billy Corgan announced that his new band Zwan’s debut album is
nearing completion.

“The Zwan album is just about done and we are all very excited
and proud that we were able to come together to make this
possible,” Corgan said in a Web post. “We’ve been having a lot of
fun, working like wizards under red lights here in the studio . . .
Everyone has worked very hard so we could make the first Zwan
record a reality by the end of this year, and it looks like we will
probably be playing some shows after Thanksgiving.”

Zwan’s current line-up is Corgan on vocals and guitar, former
Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin resuming his old post; Matthew
Sweeney, formerly of New York indie band Chavez, on guitar; David
Pajo, formerly of Slint and Tortoise, on guitar and Paz Lenchantin,
formerly of A Perfect Circle, on bass.

In other Corgan news, the singer commented on the November 19th
Smashing Pumpkins DVD release of Vieuphoria, a re-release
of the 1994 home video of the same name. “Everyone agreed that it
was the most exciting and dramatic footage of the Pumpkins that we
had ever seen from around the Vieuphoria time period of
88-94,” he wrote. “The tapes are from 1994, and prior to finding
them we didn’t even know these tapes existed. They are a little
raw, but really do capture the spirit and aggression of the band
back in the good old days.”
