2LP 180g Vinyl

The Smashing Pumpkins have created one of the most acclaimed bodies of work in musical history and have sold over 30 million albums.

The Smashing Pumpkins' frontman Billy Corgan has described Gish as a 'very spiritual album'.

Gish was recorded in Butch Vig's Smart Studios with a budget of only $20,000. Billy Corgan pushed Vig to making this the best album they could. The inclusion of a massive production style reminiscent of ELO and Queen was unusual for an independent band at the time. Whereas many albums at the time used drum sampling and processing, Gish used unprocessed drum recordings, and an exacting, unique guitar sound. Billy Corgan also performed nearly all the guitar and bass parts on the record.

Gish was recorded toward the end of Billy Corgan's psychedelic influence while the band's New Wave roots had almost entirely disappeared. The album introduced more of a hard rock sound and heavy dynamic shifts that would characterize later Smashing Pumpkins work.

The album was named after silent film icon Lillian Gish. Apparently, Corgan's grandmother used to tell him that one of the biggest things to happen to her was when Lillian Gish rode through her hometown on a train. Since his grandmother lived in the middle of nowhere, that was a big deal.
