Echo & The Bunnymen, Psychedelic Furs, Marc Almond, Bow wow wow
That was a blast!
it was a pretty massive line up. Sally bear would have came all over himself.
ECHO TOO?? Goddamn. But you're wrong, I would have came all over your face.
p.s.-cant believe smoking cotton is still your avatar! :rotfl
Not to mention that album's tour was probably the best concert tour done by anyone, ever. 3 hours of uncompromising music with nary a single pop hit in sight.
there are some tracks on Wild Mood Swings i have really grown to love...
but "Club America" has got to be the stupidest song they ever wrote
I actually like Wild Mood Swings a lot. Hated it the first time I listened to it, but it grew on me very quickly. Gone!, Strange Attraction, the 13th, Mint Car, Jupiter Crash, Round & Round & Round, This is a Lie, & Want are all good songs. The first four of those are amongst my favorite Cure songs actually.
you guys are making me want to listen to "Strange Attraction" right now..
Lovvvvveeee that track...
remind me... i need to upload my Cure cover..
i will do it this afternoon
Yea a lot of the songs on that album are actually fairly depressing for me, disguised by slightly more poppy music than is typical for the Cure. The lyrics to Strange Attraction always used to get me, I related to that song a little too closely.
interpol also played with the cure at curiosa. rapture, interpol, the cure = heaven.
i would really, really like to hear the 13th with a live horn sometime.
Anything on Pornography, Seventeen Seconds,Faith and Disintegration is gold. The rest is just ok.
I forgot they played Disintegration (the song, I mean) at Coachella. so good.
perfect day here for "All Cats Are Grey" on repeat
09 was the best coachella ever. I almost made it to the rail for The Cure.
and since were posting vids. Here's mine.
I just cued up every single song from the coachella set, on YT, to play on my TV instead of working for the next 2 hours.
yeah the 13th is a top tune. Thanks for the YouTube video nice with the horns and bongos. I've always thought that song sounded like an Elvis Costello song on record.
I :pulse the thread title
i would love to hear the 13th live with horns. along with close to me. i lost my shit when they played it in 2004 "i don't normally do this", but horns would have been the cherry on top.
Someone set up a nice site at http://curelive.blogspot.com/

I would have loved a horn section. That's what most annoyed me with the 2004 sets: automated horns just don't cut it, especially when you're doing Why Can't I Be You?
neither does the scatting/be-bopping. the horns make both of those songs. though i don't think i've ever heard the 13th at all :( i feel so lucky though that they did most of disintegration in 2004 at the curiosa festival and most of boys don't cry during the 2008 tour.
I've also not seen them do the 13th. I remember at the Download festival set, thinking 36 songs and you can't fix the 13th in??? They played for just under 3 hours. I'm an ingrate.
setlist.fm says they've only done the 13th a total of 6 times, EVER (and all of them were in 1996). I'm too lazy to see if that's totally accurate but that's pretty astounding.
i wonder if it's a horns thing. when they did close to me at coachella 2004, he said "i don't normally do this" and i wonder if that's partially why (besides the pop-ness of that and lovecats, which he also played).
I love The Cure so much. I always forget how much I enjoy them and then I hear Plainsong or something and end up watching their concert DVDs for 3 hours.
