It was a significant change in style, and garnered some attention. Since the Smashing Pumpkins' 2000 break-up, Iha has kept busy with his label, Scratchie Records, and has played in A Perfect Circle and Vanessa and the O's. Most recently, he's been working as a producer with pop star Annie. He has not commented on the Smashing Pumpkins reunion and has left on bad terms with Corgan since. It seems unlikely that he will join the reunion. « hide
