Corgan: ‘Siamese’ Was Middle Finger
“Even though it wasn’t the one that sold the most, it’s the one that seems to have come through the best,” Corgan told BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe. “As dark a record as Siamese Dream is, there’s a lot of fun in it, it’s almost like we’re kind of laughing at how stupid the whole thing is. It’s like, here’s my pop song about suicide and here’s my epic song about child abuse, and here’s my big middle finger to the indie world.”
Corgan also said he plotted his own death for two months during the album’s recording process.
