23 years of News, rumors, minutiae about The Cure
my google finger is broken. who's agyness deyn?
I never heard of her either. I had to look it up. Seems she's some kind of British supermodel.
From what I can tell, she hangs out with mediocre celebrities:http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2936228/It's like those jerks from the atrocious Fall Out Boy saying they're Cure fans. Still, if it gets more young people into (better) music....
Apparently she's the new Kate Moss :) Whatever that means. But she's one of those "supermodels" who fall out of nightclubs pissed and hang around festivals all summer long, hence she'll end up in next day's tabloids for sure. Cool t-shirt, though :D
Oh, and her real name is Laura Hollins, but I guess that wasn't rock 'n' roll enough ;)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agyness_Deyn
I'd bang her, I'd be wearing earplugs...but I'd bang her.
That's a supermodel? Goodness.
You'd bang her? She'd break into pieces. I have seen 10 year old boys with a more femine figure.
Christ, this is a fashion model?I don't pretend to know anything at all about fashion, but I don't understand how she can be a supermodel and have that hair. Or wear those pants.I mean, not in 2008.Right?
Hey Tyler, long time no see.
tyler - yep, shes a fashion model! very popular too. her boyish hair is one of the reasons shes so sought after - it made her stand out amongst the other models.she was at RCMH, so she is a cure fan.shes trying to break into music now.. she did a song with this one band, theyre praised by the likes of pitchfork.. so yeah. shes ok at singing.
muld - remember when rob did that interview with pete wentz, and even said his musical ideas and lyrics were very very good?!! he bought their cd for his niece!i was shocked..and the rumors of rob working with ashley simpson a while back? i was terrified it would actually happen
Agnes rocks.she always was cutie, but in this tshirt he's just princess

I actually would mind LESS Robert doing an AS duet than a collab with Fall Out Boy. I don't like AS at ALL, but I'm kind of intrigued when Robert crosses genres. I am probably the only one who really likes Da Hype, for example, cheesy discoy song that it is. I didn't like JSY, but I don't see why a collab with AS would HAVE to be inherently bad. I am more mortified by these pseudo-Cure bands like Fall Out Boy and AFI. Cheesy fluffy pop ala AS is just that, while FOB and AFI have pretenses to something MORE. THAT to me is worse than AS, who is what she is, for better or worse. That said, I really liked Robert's collab with B182, even though I find that band pretty reprehensibly bad overall. I also liked MOST of his other collabs - but the Korn thing sucked testes, IMO. Bring on the Shakira collab, that is what I say! :-)
PS I hate that particular Cure shirt. I much prefer mine, with the Mayan monster graphic. Encapsulates the current raw energy of the band.
I love how some commenters assume everyone wants to know whom they would "bang."
agnes got that shirt from RCMH. about the pic- a COF member playing paparrazi, LOL!!cat- i agree with you. rather have him collab with someone who isnt trying to pass themselves off as another genre. i actually liked the korn collab, not so with blink. and they killed a letter to elise!about AFI - they started off as a punk band here. now that tour is up for the cure, im more obsessed than usual. the cure makes other bands sound inferior. i cant enjoy afi anymore.. it sounds so.. yuck. i once talked to davey havok at 2 AM on the phone, i was so excited about that. now that i see who he really is, i dont like him anymore.shakira collab.. now that i would like to see.
dude...i'd totally bang her.
DJ, in all actuality, i heard a few AFI songs that i liked okay...but it's just so fake compared to the Cure. AS, for better or ill, at least has no Cure pretensions... she just exists as she is - fluffy pop queen. Why did you talk to DH on the phone, exactly?Yes, the Cure pretty much blows every other band away - except for Tom Waits. He really is the best ever, even if I am more obsessed with The Cure.
New headline: "No Name Attention Whore, Trend Jumper?"
cat - when AFI was on tour again, i was so happy, i had been a fan for quite a while. once their tour was over, i stopped listening for a while - and over time, i realized their music sounded so average compared to other bands. AFI is no longer a local band, and i must learn to accept that. i mean yes, they are still regarded as local here, but the band no longer seems to recognize their roots with all their orange county partying.. ahem davey havok. he is an attention whore. i talked to him because he was on live105, the radio here. i called for two hours straight until someone picked up the phone. it was a few days before my birthday, and a couple weeks after seeing them at Download.. and yes, robert is a fan of theirs. that was back when i liked them.i hate the majority of the AFI fanbase. =/
I don't GET at ALL why Robert is a fan of AFI. Deftones are good... but AFI?? I'll even take Blink over AFI. Their rendition of JLH on MTV Icon was atrocious. They truly SUCK labias!
deftones are really good.i liked their jlh cover much much better than blink's elise. MUCH BETTER.i also liked their cover of nin's head like a hole.. but if you havent heard it yet, i think you should stay away from it. i think everyone here who hasnt heard it, shouldnt bother to hear it. they will be happier if they dont. i still have great tolerance for AFI, i dont think others here do, lol.robert likes alot of things that surprise me.. like he'll say he hates a band that is quite good, and then he'll like fall out crap and afi enough to see their shows, listen to their records..
honestly, i think robert is just being nice regarding AFI and FOB... they are Cure fans so he returns the favor. his favorite band is mogwai, who are insanely good, and unless something is seriously awry upstairs, he can discern the difference in caliber between mogwai and AFI. even so, even if he does genuinely like AFI, i suppose we are all allowed our guilty pleasures, no? mine being (early) journey. :-)
What's wrong with saying I want to bang her, it was my way of saying she's not particularly likeable but looks like a good lay. I also think a collab with FOB would be worse than AS, for the same reason as cat.
journey isnt bad.their early work is good.i think its sweet that robert is nice like that. there are some artists out there that call the work of their fans, shit.hehe, yes, we're all allowed. =)ive met other cure fans who are closet AFI fans as wellbut if you ever come to cali for a cure show, and davey havok is djing at the afterparty - EWW! stay away from that man ;)cali needs a tom waits petition =(
I'm probably one of the very few here who actually loves the Blink-182 collaboration. 'All of This' beats anything on the self-titled, if you ask me.And I dig probably a handful of AFI songs; a friend insisted I listen to her copy of their newest album, and there's some little almost instrumental bit hidden in a song that I actually really loved.Words I never thought I'd say about an AFI song....Slow news day[/week?], Craig?
cali deffo needs a tom waits petition! WTF! i think he will tour again in that area and other parts of the states, perhaps in a coupla years. and i'll fly wherever, but will be sure to stay the fuck away from DH DJ events. ;-)tyler: i love all of this, as i said, but there are great songs on self-titled as well: lost, labyrinth, b43, eotw, tgb... (repeating myself as i am wont to do)
ps journey's early work, up through frontiers, is quite good - and their early early work is excellent. :-)
Thanks Roger, as in, Roger O'Donnell?
cool, cat! i will see you at the nearest tom waits cali show!! we can scream like schoolgirls togethor!!i think their self titled album songs rock live.. much more than on said album
dj, it would be a blast to attend a tom waits show with you! :-D by that time you will be 17, perhaps too chagrined to act 15, but at 41, all my cares have slipped way, so i'll just have to act extra goofy for the both of us! ;-)i think you would love tom waits live, but really there are very few opportunities to act goofy, as you are so immersed in WATCHING. it's not like a cure show, where you go hormonally mad... it's more of a theatrical event. of course, some people don't approach cure shows the way i do... ;-)self-titled is WAY better live... they need to bring back lost and promise!
i abhor all the collaborations smith has done in recent years.i hate every last damn band he slobbers over and i feel like this gushing over these sub-mediocre bands is just mutual masturbation.
Shawn: No, not ROD. A different Roger. : )
sofia, how do you REALLY feel? ;-)i am not sure why he gushes over AFI, really... but Mogwai deserves every last bit of adulation. :-)
Tyler: No, I just liked the photo.: )
cat, :Pi love mogwai! i mean the ones that are inexplicable and dodgy. to me. i suppose i could name them all but it's mostly the younger bands. and mtv was HORRIFIC to me. i like the deftones alright but just having marilyn manson there being "spooky" (or whatever the hell he still thinks he's doing) just made me disgusted.to me robert's just gone back on everything he ever said about artistic integrity by working with these shit bands. that's the way i feel. *snif*
I liked the MTV thing, Manson is hilarious and AFI and Deftones did a great job, IMO. :^P
sofia, i don't disagree at ALL. mtv icon was a disgrace, period. i have no clue why robert tolerated pukey fakey marilyn manson. anyway, as i said i don't hate the blink collab at all, and the others are pretty good except for korn, imo. i have no clue why he would like current-day korn. their first album was good and that's it - now they suck! some of the other collabs, too, were more respectable... earl slick, and that other dude. although i hated the forest re-mix...pointless waste of time and energy. but most of them were surprisingly okay, to my ears... but i see your point and don't disagree... why collab with pukey fakes like korn or befriend AFI?it's his life...he can do what he want... but i don't always understand his motives...
and actually, TBPH... i think MM's MUSIC is not half bad... it's his "shtick" i can't stand.
and none of this is to say i would stop listening to the cure even if he collaborated with justin timberlake or worse... as long as cure music moves me that's all that mattters!
Sofi, I have to disagree about Rob gushing. I don't think he's been obsequious towards any of these bands. I admit, Robert can be pretty confusing, in terms of some of the people he chooses to work with :ahem: Ross Robinson :ahem: and others like him who cannot hope to grasp what The Cure are and what they're all about.Nearly every cover I've heard of a Cure song leaves me flat. There's little genuine emotion behind it. The Deftones cover of If Only Tonight- was pretty badass. The cover Dinosaur Jr did of Just like Heaven was pretty decent. Even though I didn't care for the singers voice.I thought the Korn collab was ok. Again, didn't care too much for the singers voice. The Blink one was horseshite though. That's supposed to be punk?? It's borderline pussy pop.I am shocked no ones brought up Roberts collaboration with Reeves Gabriels? Yesterdays Gone... the guitar work is very dreamy and reminds me a lot of Porls, and Roberts vocals are very beseeching and Wish-esque to me. Very gorgeous.As far as Robert's collaboration with other artists goes, I think a fitting statement would be: Robert has his reasons, whereof reason knows nothing.... Pascal no?
trying to pass off this crappy pop as punk, thats so sad. as the years go by, real punk gets rarer and harder to find. hot topic - all their band shirts are made in Honduras and they rip you off at $20-65 for their clothes. which were made by some third world country, without the right wages. and then they call it punk. thats despicable! how dare you take advantage of those people - giving them less pay, less workers rights, less of everything - AND THEN TRY TO HIDE BEHIND A REBELLIOUS EXTERIOR?? shitty, false pretenses. i have a big AFI poster on the wall, and i dont have the heart to take it down. i just get slightly angry everytime i look at it.helsa - thats one of my favorite collabs. unfortunetly, the less.. desirable collaborations,mixes, etc. etc. all the notorious bad stuff draws more attention and talk than the real treasures. cranes did forever with the cure during wish tour - beautiful. robert almost mixed Jewel on their album Forever (named after the cure song), and i love that one.
i LOVE 'yesterday's gone.' beautiful song. what was 'pirate ships' from again? that's another little forgotten one that i really like.
cat - but i wanna be 15 forrreevver!! uggh.. i dont want to wait till then for tom to get here! he had better drag his ass over here soon. oops i mean also. not almost
Monkey: Pirate Ships is from the Disintegration sessions.
oooh, Monkey, I forgot all about Pirate Ships. Robert sounds very 'longing' and 'wispy' in that one. It was originally done by Wendy Waldman, I believe. I've got some of these on mp3 somewhere...
Sweet! I don't care who she is - it's just nice to see someone wearing a Cure shirt. Other than at concerts, the only time I've seen someone in a Cure shirt was a week or so ago at my local Target! :)
I thik she's awesone. I knew I liked her for a reason ;)
Ok, I'll bite. Who the heck is Agyness Deyn?
That's hilarious, genitalben007 (both your name and the comment). She actually made up the name, marie? That's so lame.
now that the dewey glow and flush of love from the tour has all but faded i can finally get back to the cantankery.that being said...i forgot completely about 'pirate ships' until this very second and i thank you, monkey because jesus what a song. i had to dig it up again.why 'hello i love you' instead? wtf was that? i wouldve liked to have been in the room when that decision was made. and also "let's release a DANCE version of 'purple haze'. let's do that." truthfully, i do the roger rabbit whenever i hear it.
but muld - lots of peeps make up their monikersfor example - i dont think Prince is his birth name. and Bill Graham - the legendary concert promoter, that wasnt his real name. or is it cuz shes a mod? ;) oh wait.. i forgot mods and models are different =l
prince is actually prince's name.prince rogers nelson
Pussy hugging thighs now??That's just wrong...
Hello COF people!Just wanted to totally agree with you Cat and cie about Mogwaï. First thing i've done to get over my little depression after the 4 tour was to buy Mogwaï tickets. I can't wait to see them in Montréal, they are brilliant.I don't know the model, she is pretty i believe, but i don't mind what she listen to ;)
All I can do is laugh.
sofia - *smacks self* i stand corrected!fantac - EW.
scribbles, don't take it too hard. i imagine if prince were to name himself something different it would be 'king' instead ;)
reeves gabrels was the other artist i was referencing when i mentioned his more respectable collabs. i think robert has done more good than bad collabs. anyway.
"Thanks Roger, as in, Roger O'Donnell?"nope...mei'm ashamed to admit I check the dailymail on a daily basis. I find it amazing how people follow these celebs around and report on their slightest movements; it's quite entertaining.And by the way, Agyness can be quite striking sometimes and quite rediculous at other times.
Sofia, I had to laugh when you mentioned Engelbert Humperdinck. Did you ever see this bit by Eddie Izzard about that stage name? Its a hoot:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckGmMO0zbJo
I told you guys she was at Radio City, even my friend who was with me didnt believe me, she was w/a cute dude too, very laidback. She had no makeup on and had perfect skin, I notice that stuff. She was looking into the crowd walking back and forth on the main floor, not hiding like most of those types. Toni
