Gish is the debut studio album by American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins, released in May 1991 through Caroline Records. Frontman Billy Corgan has variously described Gish as a "very spiritual album" and "an album about spiritual ascension".

The Smashing Pumpkins released their debut album on May 28, 1991 under the indie label, Caroline Records, about three months before Nirvana released their iconic album, Nevermind. Although Gish only peaked at 195 on the Billboard 200, it became a cult classic that impacted the music industry in a huge way and paved a path for the alternative rock scene in the 1990s. It’s also worth mentioning that the album quckly hit the spot on the CMJ charts, which tracks the popularity and rotation among college radio stations.

Smashing pumpkins lyrics. I AM ONE I am one as you are three Try to find my sight in your trinity Your city too poor Your city too poor Try to look for something In your city to pour over. I have gone crazy Motherfuckin' crazy I have gone --. RHINOCEROS (same as on "Gish"). BLUE Hey Blue, all your love is strange Come out with all those crazy names So true when you laugh For you, Blue.

Smashing Pumpkins would achieve international fame with their second and third albums - Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness - but they first caught some attention with the release of their debut disc, Gish, which arrived on May 28, 1991. The talented Billy Corgan had begun his pursuit of music in his teens, gravitating toward the guitar and taking a job at a record store to continually be around music. It's not a political album, it's a personal album. In a weird kind of way, Gish is almost like an instrumental album - it just happens to have singing on it, but the music overpowers the band in a lot of places. I was trying to say a lot of things I couldn't really say in kind of intangible, unspeakable ways, so I was capable of doing that with the music, but I don't think I was capable of doing it with words. The first official single off the album was "Siva.

While Nirvana was a punk band, the Smashing Pumpkins and guitarist/vocalist Billy Corgan are arena rockers, co-opting their metallic riffs and epic art rock song structures with self-absorbed lyrical confessions. Though Corgan's lyrics fall apart upon close analysis, there's no denying his gift for arrangements. Like Brian May and Jimmy Page, he knows how to layer guitars for maximum effect, whether it's on the pounding, sub-Sabbath rush of "I Am One" or the shimmering, psychedelic dream pop surfaces of "Rhinoceros.

Album · 1991 · 10 Songs. While punk rock is often considered to be the main influence on alternative rock of the 1990s, Smashing Pumpkins were never a band with punk aspirations. Arena rock was their ambition and sonic perfection was their goal in the studio. Butch Vig, who also produced Nirvana's Nevermind, enabled Billy Corgan to layer the guitars beautifully, creating a sonic experience that requires headphones to fully comprehend.
