Smashing Pumpkins meet Christian rock?

So... we know James Iha isn't down for the reunion of the pumkins. Rumor has it though, that one of the girls from punk band the Halo Friendlies (yes, the name is taken from the Damien Jurado song) will be on bass and the Lassie Foundation's foundation's guitar player are coming into the fold, both of which have their roots in the Christian music scene of the late 1990's...

Last I heard Lassie Foundation was on Velvet Blue, due to their Jeff Cloud (Joy Electric, SF59) connection and the Halo Friendlies broke up when they got signed to Warner. Hmmm....

Corgan has been notably more vocal about his faith in the past years which is pretty evident on the Zwan album (which is amazing!) and has helped out bands like Blindside and Sleeping At Last.

Whatever the case, people are just looking forward to a good album, so please give us that Billy.

Interesting. I wonder if this means I could get away with interviewing Billy on top-40 Christian radio now. You think??
