Stranger Than Fiction download

Update 2: Here are those other 2 Tim Pope songs (which aired on the Cure 102 radio show on Oct. 6th, 1990) - I Need You and Drive You Round The Bend. And here's Tim's full segment, and interview with Robert, from the show. (Thanks Olivier)

Update:
Here's the Tim Pope 12". (Thanks Moggieboy)

"Just to let you know that I've uploaded the Stranger Than Fiction compilation to my blog, Ripped In Glasgow. I've got the full 12" rip of Tim Pope's record as well to put up if the demand's there." (Thanks Moggieboy)

  1. Ack!
    i'd like to put in a request for the Pope 12". i spent Years looking for it, but gave up around the time Napster dissolved (yeah, Old cure fan).

    i've got the 'Stranger' CD, but i'm glad you've made it available for people...

    Cheers!

  2. Do you mean Tim Pope's infamous LP or it that just the I Want To Be A Tree 12"?

  3. i've never heard word of a full LP, just the 'tree' single with 2 b-sides. i really Really want to hear those b-sides!

  4. All tracks from the Tim Pope single are available through Soulseek, or I can probably host them at megaupload if anyone really wants to hear them. The b-sides are quite nice, if not overly spectacular. They're called (I think) 'I Love Elephants' and the extra track is called 'the Double Crossing of Two Faced Fred' and is a spoken word poetry type affair

  7. Hey!
    thanks for posting this, i'm glad i got it!
    i had really been hoping for some musical 'backup' from smith and his sister (among others) like they did on 'I want...'

    ah well, the completist/fan-addict is happy!

  8. I don't (didn't) think that Tim Pope released an LP, but if anyone has any info, please pass it on!

  9. Tim Pope did record a solo album but it was never actually released. I suspect that the two songs he played on the short-lived "Cure 102" radio station on October 6th, 1990 had been taken from that LP. They were called "I Need You" and "Drive You Round the Bed" and were, ah, interesting in a silly sort of way. I haven't heard of anything else from that album, though!

  10. Thanks for the information. If anyone has those two tracks, or access to the whole album, it would be nice if they could share them in some way!

  11. Sure, I will share both tracks when/if I can get my hands on the tape again. And a tape player. And something to hook it up to a computer. (Might take a little while :-)

  20. Talking about Mr Pope there is some non-news about The Cure (the only news we seem to get). Declaring that he is not currently working with them again (at least for the moment).

  22. Olivier tu déchires. (You tear it up ?)

    ReplyDelete
  23. You're very welcome!
    (P, for the "No Endive" tapes, just email me.)

  24. To be exact, those songs actually come from "Son of Cure FM" on Q102, the second attempt of the band at a pirate radio station on Oct 6th, 1990 - not from the first "Cure FM" on WBILL (Aug 31st, 1990).
