Smashing Pumpkins 'Siamese Dream' Girls Reunite

posted by MH -

The two young girls who are on the iconic album cover of the Smashing Pumpkins' Siamese Dream album reunited for the band's new tour.

Billy Corgan posted a photo of the two to his Instagram in a similar pose they made for the photo on the album cover and thanked them for taking part in the band's reunion announcement.


On such a special day in SP history, I want to take a moment to thank Ali and LySandra, who you might know were the little girls that I stood by and watched have their picture taken some 23 years ago (on what was a perfect LA afternoon). Never realizing that this moment in time would forever tie usr, and go on to become such an iconic image in rock history. What's amazing is their chemistry with one another still leaps through the camera to this day and yet if memory serves they'd never met before that Siamese shoot. Which tells me their coming together, and the beauty that Melodie's shot captures, of youth and innocence, was meant to be SP's own, personal lucky star. So thank you thank you thank you Ali and LySandra, we adore you, and having you be a part of today's launch brings tears to my eyes. For life goes fast, and I can still see you in my mind's eye wearing crisp white dresses in a stranger's backyard, looking like little Mother Mary's, smiling and laughing into the sun.

The two women, Ali and LySandra, also appear in the video announcement for the reunion tour, seen holding a flamethrower that ignites a large Smashing Pumpkins band logo.


Back in 2011, Corgan joked that the band's bassist at the time, Nicole Fiorentino, was actually one of the girls despite a 7-year age difference between her and the age of the girls in the photo.
