Billy Corgan has launched legal action against the distributor of material released through his Martha’s Music label, Rocket Science Ventures, over alleged unpaid revenues.

The lawsuit, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, names the company’s President Kevin Day as a defendant, along with ten other unnamed people, who it is suggested are actually aliases of Day himself. Corgan alleges that Day and his company, with which the Smashing Pumpkins frontman signed a deal in 2010, stopped providing him with proper accounts in 2011 and has engaged in other irregular business practices.

Corgan reckons he’s owed at least $75,000, and is demanding payment plus interest, as well as access to full accounts and a ruling that Day has breached their contract.
