    Looks like The Cure are playing some random festival this summer in Montreal, Quebec Canada...

    http://www.montrealgazette.com/enter...351/story.html

    Damn, I wonder if this means there is hope for a full blown North American tour this summer/fall? Probably not. They seem to just like to do one off shows and festivals these days. It would be nice to see them again though, haven't seen them since the 2004 Curiosa tour in Toronto. I barely even remember that show, it's been almost 10 years!

    EDIT: The official Cure site posted this news today as well with the title "ANOTHER SHOW...MORE TO COME..."

    http://www.thecure.com/blog/default.aspx?nid=40129

    So, maybe this means there will be more North American dates?????

    God, I hope they do more than a festival run through the US....last time I saw them was in Chicago on the Curiosa tour....was supposed to see them again in Chicago around when 4:13 Dream came out, but a root canal caused complications for the 6+ hour drive...

    While I'm beyond thrilled that they're coming back to the US, still very scared its just for festivals...

    God, if The Cure, New Order, and NIN all play Lolla... I just don't think I'd be able to comprehend that greatness.

    Damn, that would actually get me to go fly out to Chi town... *checks calander* don't I have that weekend booked off anyway...? If Lolla is Aug 2-4 then by some fluke of a chance I did book that week off work already. Interesting...

    Hmm, both these festivals are the same weekend though. That could cause some clashing, could it not? I guess the bands can take turns headlining different nights of the weekend, kinda like how the set up is for Reading and Leeds in the UK.

    Yep that's pretty much how it works every year between Osheaga and Lolla. Only difference is, last year Osheaga gave Sigur Ros a nighttime headline slot while Lolla shoved them in a 60 minute mid afternoon slot. Terrible idea.

    This could not have come at a better time (that's my town). I got Disintegration in like 1997 or so and always loved it, but except for Pornography a few years back, never got around to checking out the rest of the catalogue until very recently, within the last year or so. Faith, The Head on the Door, and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me are all currently kicking my ass, especially Faith. I found the original versions of these in used record stores and shot for them because I'd heard the latter reissues sounded terrible, while the first ones up until Pornography were excellent. Truth?

    Minor side-note about Mark "Flood" Ellis. I saw a few bios today e.g. http://trustmeimascientist.com/2012/...rofiles-flood/ which credit him coming to notice as an assistant engineer on New Order's "Movement" - http://trustmeimascientist.com/2012/...rofiles-flood/ - in 1981.

    However I'm sure he's thanked in the notes for 1980's "Seventeen Seconds". In fact I'm pretty sure it was on this album that Smith christened him Flood. (however he was thanked rather than credited specifically)

    pretty much. the top has one error (cutting off the beginning of 'shake dog shake') and speeds up 'bananafishbones' (which i believe was the intended speed- and all original and vinyl cds had a mastering error). i don't mind the sound of any of them, though- but the top is the problematic one for some people.

    glad you're digging faith. i toggle between that & seventeen seconds as my favorite cure record. leaning heavily towards the latter these days...

    i still feel like the shortened intro of shake dog shake sounds better (and i would argue that robert changed it because HE wanted it that way). i love the top because, as he described it, it's essentially the solo album he never made.

    i have all of the remasters (except Blue Sunshine by the Glove) and think they sounds great. some of the bonus material is throwaway but some of it is fantastic. i also love the packaging and all of the stories in the liner notes.

    The blue sunshine remaster is worth picking up ☺

    The quality of the Cure re-issues is head and shoulders above the New Order ones, sadly.

    Speaking of remasters, goddamnit where's Wish?

    The Cure remasters sound fucking excellent. Miles above the Joy Division remasters....You must be listening on a shitty stereo system dude.

    Most definitely a fluke. I got into them by catching them at a festival.

    I've only seen them twice live, first time was awesome (manchester move fest '04), second time less so (NME god like genius award '09) but that was hampered by many factors, I was sitting in the nosebleeders, the folks next to me were excitable, loud french people who kept lining up camera shots in front of my face, the setlist was a bit pedestrian (one song per album, more or less). However the encore (all TIB tracks) was phenomenal.

    I didn't do more than a single listen comparison before deleting my pre-deluxe rips, but I've never had problems with the remasters. The only problem I have is with 'At Night' from 17 Seconds, and I have the exact opposite issue to brick-walling: the range between the snare and the rest of the song is too goddamn big! To hear the rest properly, I have to have the snare so loud my headphones practically pop out of my ears.

    though this is true with a lot of remasters that have been done in the last ten years, it is absolutely not true with the cure remasters. the dynamic range is, in my opinion, far improved from original releases.

    I was at this show, it was amazing. If only more bands played for 3+ hours.

    my fiancee and i squealed when we saw simon's "the angels have the phone box" sticker on his black bass.

    thought it started at 8:30 so we missed the first little bit, but got it going in time for lullaby, and watched the rest until they literally just finished with boys don't cry.

    now we're going to bed.

    At this point, I just about don't care if they never release a new album. I just want the Wish reissue, the Show DVD and maybe the In Orange DVD.

    i dont know enough about the Cure. Just the hits basically. But i understand their importance and influence. I watched them on the stream and really really enjoyed it. I can't believe how good Robert Smith;s voice still is. Kudos to him.

    I do, I do! And I knew it was bullshit from the word 'go'. Remember when he said we'd have '4:13 Dream' by April 2006? And then we finally got that steaming brickwalled pile of third-rate retreads in October 2008.

    Coming up on the five year anniversary of the last Cure album...their longest gap to date between albums. We'll see the '4:13 Dream' remaster before we'll see that "dark half" of the album.

    did anyone else notice they played at least half of wish? i'm glad they threw 100 years in there and scattered pieces of disintegration (pun intended) throughout the setlist, but the bulk of it was songs from wish. seemed a bit odd to me. i was hoping for at least ONE song off faith, maybe more than just "why can't i be you?" off kiss me kiss me kiss me.
