Smashing Pumpkins track, Glynis to be released on 180g vinyl

NO ALTERNATIVEThe compilation disc No Alternative which was put together by Red Hot AIDS Benefit Series will be released on vinyl for the first time this Record Store day, April 20th 2013. The disc includes the track Glynis by the Smashing Pumpkins.  This track was recently remixed for the Pisces Iscariot reissue bonus disc. Billy had said in a tweet that the “original mix is a bit strange, no?”.

In an interview with Billy he said that the song was about “This girl name Glynis that was in a band called Red Red Meat… She was very sick for a long time, no one knew what was wrong with her. She found out she had AIDS and died two months later. And it’s not that I knew her very well.. it effected me more the way people talked about her dying and the way people moralized about it.”

Huge thanks to Shawn for the heads up!
