Quick Hits: The Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, Floetry, Jack's Mannequin, Nada Surf, Michael Stipe
January 27, 2006

It looks like the recent rumor of an impending Smashing Pumpkins reunion has been squashed. XTRA/San Diego's Marco Collins tells The Chicago Tribune that Reprise, Billy Corgan's label, said the band would not be a part of this year's Coachella Festival, as has been rumored for the past week. A Reprise spokesperson added, "We never knew they were in to back out." The actual, official Coachella lineup will be revealed on Monday. Meanwhile, a mysterious fan site called billycorgan.org is reporting a "new Pumpkins" album is on the horizon, but it appears to be a hoax.


Trent Reznor

Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails narrates a new, two-minute PSA video online for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The graphic clip shows footage of China's treatment of cats and dogs for their fur. Fans can win an iPod autographed by Reznor for forwarding the video along online here.

Floetry singer Marsha Ambrosius is working on a solo project with Dr. Dre, and tells MTV.com she is in the process of signing a solo deal with the Rap great. She says that while in the studio working on new material, 50 Cent dropped by and recorded a track, though it is too soon to tell if it will make her album, which isn't expected until 2007.

Earlier this week, Andrew McMahon of Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate played his first live show in months, after successfully completing treatment for leukemia. MTV.com reports that Tommy Lee showed up at the Viper Room gig in Hollywood to play drums on one song, as Jack's Mannequin performed their entire debut album in order. "Everything I've done lately has revolved around my illness and recovery, and it's nice to be doing some things now that are really just about promoting the record, and things I would be doing otherwise," McMahon said. "I'm glad to be in a little bit more of a normal stride."

Nada Surf will embark on a North American tour beginning February 8 in Baltimore, wrapping up in Toronto on March 11. Rogue Wave will also be on board for the trek.

Michael Stipe makes an appearance on British band Placebo's new album, Meds, on the track "Broken Promise." He will also reportedly appear on an upcoming tribute album to Serge Gainsbourg.
