  1. Thanks!

    ...But can we say AUTOTUNED???

    I've noticed The Cure is popular to name-drop in the music industry lately... Which is not necessarily a good thing :/

    All these new bands are not actually very good, so it's rather disappointing that they can't take The Cure's example and branch out from newer music and do their own thing... That's what I think The Cure is really about anyways. Great music that's distinguishable from everything else.. They don't fit the mold.. They don't even really fit their own mold sometimes x]

    erm.. rant over :P

  2. Not bad, but the vocals we're the best in some part. It would have been nice to see them make it more their own. I kind of liked the ending....the way they did the ending, not the fact that the song was over!

  4. The Kill Hannah guys are massive Cure fans. Mat (lead vocals) dj'd a Cure night in Chicago with me a few years back. He found out about it via a mutual friend and asked if he could do it with us. We didn't even have to pay him ;) He wouldn't take the money and was thrilled we let him do it with us. Long story short, I have not heard it yet, but knowing their love and appreciation for The Cure, I'm glad a band that actually are real fans are covering a Cure song, and not some band that needs to fill out a crappy compilation cover album, doing it for exposure, money, etc...

  7. @DJ, yup I know, isn't it great? :) Mat owns pretty much every Cure thing ever released, including Join the Dots x] That's so awesome! I've been a fan of Kill Hannah for about 3 years now so I got to meet them at the last show they had in Denver... They were the nicest musicians you could meet, it was fantastic :)

  8. @ Not Dead yet: Seriously, they really are the nicest and most humble band I've met as well.

  9. I covered Neeeeeeeeeeeeewwwww Day in the shower last night. I thought it was awesome but the missus didn't agree. She kept hollering at me to "SHUT YER HOLE!!"

    @DJ - You should change your blogname to Chameleon.
    You know...kamar kamar kamar kamar kamar chameleon!
