More memories from 1991

As we continue down memory lane, with our thoughts on the T&C 2 show, and the anticipation that was building for the 'Wish' album, here are some 'Wish' era press clippings I found in an old folder - reviews of T&C2 from Q (part 1 - part 2) and NME (this scan is from JC), and a very interesting Aug. 1991 article from Select (Album working title was 'Higher'? 'Anniversary' was written for 'Wish'? What was 'Decadence'? Talk of 'The Last Day of Summer', and titles of songs for Robert's solo album).

Update: More scans added. (Thanks JC/Perfect Murder)

  1. "So, at the same time as 'Never Enough' they recorded a series of songs with Dance remixer Mark Saunders. Smith refused to release all but one of them"

    Am I missing something? Sounds like there was a bunch of original tracks never released circa 1990/91.

  2. @ andrewV127: Hopefully all the songs will be released on the Deluxe Editions. I would love to hear that Dance songs. I have to admit I still love "Mixed Up" and of course its B-Sides.

  3. Mixed up has the best production of just about any Cure album. The guitars are superbly mixed - loud, at the front of the mix, every note counts... LOVE it. Best version of A Forest, and even Let's go to Bed, which is a song I don't care for in album version, takes on a new life with the added/extended solo/rhythm part at the end.

  4. 'Anniversary' was the early title of 'High'. I know the title of 'Decadence' but maybe this one is an early title of a song, too.

  6. there are always a 'bunch of original tracks'...in pieces or parts or wholes...it could come out in the fashion of anything, guitars, drums, keys, whatever..CAN you guys give it a rest? there is a limited anout of discussion that leads to intense stalking every moment, everything, and for that reason, i tell them..stay away..it is not worth it...CURB YOUR FUCKING ENTHUSIASM...for god's sake, see yourself as humankind and not someone who only can bear to type a syllable if it does not relate to the cure...TRUST me, if not, you are not the audience...

  7. @April. Asking us to give it a rest is like asking the world to stop spinning because you are dizzy. We are fans, deal with it.

    "see yourself as humankind and not someone who only can bear to type a syllable if it does not relate to the cure" I must thank you for that comment though. I love it when someone reveals their ignorance and looks like an idiot in the process.

    If I'm seen as someone who can't bear to type a syllable if it doesn't relate to The Cure, just because I visit this blog and write a quick paragraph or two in response to a news story I like, then go on call me a stalker. Much like how I'm calling you a troll.

  8. @ april: better you "TRUST" us: this Blog is about The Cure (the band), thats why. It is very simple and easy to understand. Do you go the Cinema and expecting a Readingroom?

  11. Read that somewhere too. Would love to hear that sessions...

    RSX admitted in an interview during the Wild Mood Swings release that they even did Jungle sessions for the album (WMS), but threw all away...

  12. Does anyone have/know where I can get audio of these shows, particularly Cut/Away?

  13. I also remember an interview around this time when Robert said about the electronic stuff that Boris wasn't keen as he felt a bit redundant and Porl didn't see why they should be messing around with machines again - or words to that effect. So they scrapped them and plugged the guitars back in.

  14. Now I really hope that there is a version of the record that was recorded in 1991, and that it surfaces. This could have been their very best record.

    Damn it's really getting harder and harder to look at that as a good thing.
