Smashing Pumpkins fans will soon have the opportunity to buy their favorite records all over again. After a lengthy legal negotiation, the alt-classic band's catalog will get the deluxe reissue treatment, starting this fall with 1991's "Gish," 1993's landmark "Siamese Dream" and the following year's "Pisces Iscariot" comp. The old titles keep coming through 2013.
