Smashing Pumpkins Covered Hole’s “Malibu” Last Night
"Oh come on, be alive again"
Update: We also have footage of Smashing Pumpkins covering David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” Scroll down to see fan-shot Instagram video (via NME).
Smashing Pumpkins began their U.S. tour with Liz Phair in Portland, Oregon, last night, where they added a few surprise covers, including David Bowie (“Space Oddity”) and Natalie Imbruglia (“Identify”). But perhaps the most exciting cover was a take on Hole’s “Malibu.” Billy Corgan co-wrote the song with Courtney Love and Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson, though singer-songwriter and Pumpkins associate Katie Cole took lead vocals in concert.
