Hailing from Bordeaux, France, punk rock tandem Caroline Martial and Orion Bouvier make up the tantalizing Kap Bambino. Drawing upon the likes of Suicide and Nirvana, Kap Bambino fleshes out unruly noise rock for the masses. Revel in Kap Bambino’s “Batcaves”, which Martial helpfully describes as “a call to all the bats out there”, as well as a list of their North American tour dates. The band’s new EP, Batcaves, is set for a digital release on November 16th, and their full length album Blacklist is due 2010.

Fourteen years ago this week: the Smashing Pumpkins released their third album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, on Virgin Records. For the first and only time in the band’s career, the epic multi-disc album debuted at number one on the Billboard Charts. The album earned the band seven Grammy Award nominations, and won best hard rock performance for “Bullet with Butterfly Wings”. Mellon Collie was intended to be a concept album symbolizing the cycle of life and death. As a whole, the album expanded the band’s repertoire by incorporating diverse musical styles, giving the band multiple dimensions. Upon its release, head Pumpkin Billy Corgan described the album as an interpretation of “the human condition of mortal sorrow”.
