ACC (Smashing Pumpkins, 1991) 1 of 3
1 of 3 (see large size to read) | Because enough people have asked about it, here's the 1991 interview my friend Bob and I did with Smashing Pumpkins (Bob scored us loads of interviews and advance music back then). They were playing the Babylon A Go-go in Cleveland and I was publishing a bike/skate/music 'zine called ACC (which, of course, stood for Atomic Circle of Chaos, a name Bob came up with). It was a scissors and glue 'zine, photocopied on 8 1/2 x 11" paper, except in this case: I decided to get fancy and do gatefolds on legal paper for the Pumpkins interview portion of the 'zine.
So, here are some scans of a beat-up copy of the 'zine, which was issue 14, since there is no way I'm transcribing the interview. Have fun, and please forgive our youthful dorkiness. This interview is now more than 15 years old, which means we were 15 years younger when we asked all these questions. Still, Corgan and Iha humored us and gave a nice interview to a couple of young music geeks.
