    And as a side note, why in the world wouldn't that Cure track have been included in the City of Angels movie? That film needed all the help it could get. Not to mention Tim Pope directed it so it would have made sense.
    I don't think Roger's feelings about Kim or the Pixies necessarily translate to that of Robert's or the rest of the band - didn't Robert specifically curate them to play the Daydream Festival a few years back? Or maybe I'm getting that mixed up with Meltdown, and he didn't have anything to do with it.

    It was Pixies who were terrible at Coachella 04, but if I'm honest, The Cure's set that year wasn't one of their best, either. Robert looked super frustrated with sound/technical issues, and that was even before he broke a string during 100 Years. It was great hearing some self-titled album songs getting premiered though.

    I thought it was a pretty good Chvrches song and I enjoyed Robert's parts. I'm an *checks notes* easily impressed tween.

    Oh ok thanks for clarifying. Stupid me read that as Robert talking not Roger.

    So it appears that aforementioned quote about “six weeks” and just deciding on who to choose to mix the new albums was just taken verbatim from what Robert says in the end of the above video. Let’s wait and see what happens.

    *puts on The Promise*

    “And I’m waiting…
    and I’m waiting…
    and I’m waiting…

    …and I’m still waiting.”

    Six weeks, six MONTHS will go by and there will still be nothing new. We all know this, sadly

    Hey, at least he’s looking really healthy (I mean that!)

    It was kinda concerning there for a time during those Seventeen Seconds and Faith sessions with those swollen feet, but he’s looking tops now.

    Hmmm… I wonder what Mary looks like in 2021?

    I noticed that the alternate vocal mix of "Going Nowhere" wasn't on YouTube anywhere so decided to upload it myself:



    Meanwhile, does anyone need or want anything from my rarities folder that I haven't looked at for years? -

    Was that Paul Mac remix officially commissioned by the band? Seems like an odd choice of remixer; great that Robert Smith is aware of Itch-e & Scratch-e, or maybe it’s through Mac’s Placebo remix? I wonder what year that came out… So many questions…

    I’m not sure.

    I also have another folder I downloaded years ago called “The Cure - B-Sides and Rarities (Flac)” that’s 6.85 GB. I think it has everything on it that wasn’t included on Join The Dots (remixes, etc). I’ll upload that one day.

    Meanwhile, I have uploaded the above folder (also included the TV 2015 re-sung version of A Few Hours After This for that TV show) if anyone wants the link. It’s nowhere near complete but got nice bits and pieces in it.

    Seemingly taken from the soundtrack to “One Perfect Day” (credited as ‘Robert Smith’!?) -

    What’s everyone’s favourite track outside of the “standard” track listing of the self titled album? Robert said he considers the US track listing plus Going Nowhere as the definitive version.

    Truth Goodness And Beauty
    Fake
    This Morning
    Your God Is Fear
    Why Can’t I Be Me?

    I feel like some of those tracks should have replaced quite a few on the main album.

    Just re-reading the lyrics to WCIBM? and love the little nod to Why Can’t I Be You? at the end with the whispered “simply elegant…”

    I think all the "bonus" songs from the self-titled era are ace. Maybe Fake less so than the others.

    I have checked.. I must see (and record) the first time of Going Nowhere live. It was at Köln nearly 17 years ago. Cranes was the opening band !
    A great night.. great memories
    Going nowhere were played alone as the Third encore..
    I remember it was during the Euro of football and France was playing this night again Greece and I remember having the result at the hotel after the show.

    I have not watched this and have no intention of watching this based off the thumbnail and comments alone, but putting it here anyway. Just looking at the preview annoys me.

    I'm really into Pornography.

    before anyone seizes the opportunity, I'm talking about the album.

    And Seventeen Seconds.

    And it ends on this note:

    Elsewhere in The Times’ interview, Robert Smith revealed he thinks The Cure’s next album will be their last.
    “The new Cure stuff is very emotional. It’s 10 years of life distilled into a couple of hours of intense stuff.” Then adding: “And I can’t think we’ll ever do anything else. I definitely can’t do this again.”


    …but I thought it was 2 albums plus a solo album of “noise”? Be clear Bob. Plus, you sang “I can’t do this anymore” on “It’s Over” in 2008. Been there, heard that.

    A couple hours? Either he is referring to 2 albums, or it's gonna be one long as album.

    I have seen interviews from 1984 where RS says he is retiring The Cure. He says that every album cycle. I still think he will never release this one. I dream of the day someone in the band gets pissed (Roger) and just leaks everything online
