NHT120: THE SMASHING PUMPKINS – Daydream
Welcome to NEVER HEARD THAT.
US band, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS rode the musical high life for quite some time.
Initially identified with the grunge movement, they very soon transcended into mainstream consciousness.
I think that their willingness to explore beyond “guitar, bass and drums”, the grunge standard of many of their contemporaries, helped them to achieve this.
Today’s track is another short one, but what attracted me to it, is that it is led by acoustic guitar and is embellished by a string section. Not very grungy!
Oh, and for interest, it is the only song on debut album Gish not sung by Billy Corgan.
I hope you enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.
Cheers, Andrew Muecke
