Billy Corgan Says He Has "10-15 Albums Worth" of Unreleased Demos from Almost 30 Years Ago

In the midst of recording the new  Smashing Pumpkins  album,  Billy Corgan  has happened upon a forgotten stash of unreleased material. In a brand-new update on the  Pumpkins' official website , Corgan writes, "I’m currently mulling the release of a ‘best of’ (which if you heard the stuff you know I’m joshing) of my many demos from 1985-1986." 

The singer reveals that he found roughly 60 tapes of material, recorded when he was a teenager, including "plenty of...stuff worth a chuckle or a nod: some goth, some heavy metal, and even some electronic stuff." He muses that he might eventually release the demos on vinyl in the same way that he recently released  AEGEA , a "soundscape" album that was offered online and limited to 500 copies, each individually signed by Corgan.

Fear not, Pumpkins fans: the recording of the new album,  Monument to an Elegy , hasn't been slowed down by this recent demo discovery. Corgan reports that bass tracks were laid down this week.
