Smashing Pumpkins Billy Corgan is launching a record label with Kerry “Studio Dog” Brown.
Brown posted a tweet (@studiodog) that linked to his blog posting below:
“Billy and I are happy to announce the birth of our record label! The name of the label will be made public soon. (We need to make sure that we have the name rights before we can announce it.)
“We are very excited to be collaborating with amazing artists that have made a huge impact on the underground music world… From the psychedelic garage rock of the 60′s and the punk rock insanity of the 70′s and 80′s to the post-punk Pleiadian power-pop that is now.”
According to LA Weekly, songs slated for release on Brown and Corgan’s new label include those by The Germs, The Electric Prunes, Fancy Space People, and one-hit wonders The Strawberry Alarm Clock.
The blog also reveals that song number two from Pumpkins’ Teargarden By Kaleidyscope will be available for download within the next two weeks.
