Smashing Pumpkins to Reissue Entire Catalogue

The Smashing Pumpkins will be re-releasing their entire back catalogue, re-mastered and with bonus material, starting this fall.  The first two to be released will be Gish and Siamese Dream.  What the bonus material is exactly hasn’t been announced yet (and sounds like it won’t be until the CDs are released).  In-between Gish and Siamese Dream the Pumpkins released an EP titled Lull.  I wonder if that will get reissued as well or just included on the Gish disc.  Also I wonder if the song “Drown” will appear on either reissue (the song originally appeared on the Singles soundtrack and is probably the best thing that the band has ever written). 

Admittedly I am not a big fan of the Smashing Pumpkins.  I think the first two records are amazing but after that I really couldn’t care less.  Hopefully these reissues will have some good stuff on them and not be too expensive, otherwise they might not be worth getting.
