Billy Corgan went from selling records at a Chicago record store to selling records as front man of the iconic Smashing Pumpkins. Influenced by metal, pop, and shoegazer rock, Smashing Pumpkins recorded an insular world of music that resonated with fans during alternative music’s heyday. Slivers of hope emboldened the powerful music crafted by the band. This underlying beauty is given full instrumental play on The String Quartet Tribute to Smashing Pumpkins. The subtle nuance of violin, viola, and cello awaken the power and passion of such classic Corgan compositions as 1979, Zero, and Today. You’ll be in love with this sadness.
