The Cure are one of the Q 25

Q magazine is celebrating their 25th anniversary by selecting the Greatest Act of the Last 25 Years, and The Cure have made their short list of 25. You can vote here by creating your own list of 25. You just have to drag and drop the artists around the grid, then submit it. (Thanks JC, Jeremy, and Barry)

  9. Nice bike. Don't know why you'd want a fixed gear if you weren't riding track, or why it has a brake if it's a track bike. (I used to be a serious cyclist.)

  17. Thanks, bob. Not my color, but a fun article to read, and a very cool project that they are doing.

    There should be news soon, eric & David. At the very least, we have Bestival to look forward to. And maybe a surprise or 2? Keep your fingers crossed.

  18. I'd like less announcements and more real news and projects. It's so disapointing to read that something is supposed to happen and that never comes out or it does 3 years later. I'd like new stuff, new Cure music... It's what has always kept The Cure alive, vibrant and relevant. I mean it's cool to get re releases and gigs like Sydney's but too much nostalgia kills creativity. Remember when Robert explained how old songs are the beloved ones just because fans listen to them for 15 or 30 years ? That doesn't mean they're better than more recent ones. I think that's the latest album is always criticized when coming out, compared (and underated) to old stuff. And times goes by snd then people goes like 'finally this record is fucking good, I should have noticed that'. 'Underneath the stars', 'The Scream', 'Labyrinth', 'Cut here', 'Out of this world', 'Lost' .. are fucking good songs, as fucking good as 'Boys don't cry', '100 hundred years' or 'Lovesong'. But they have to be judged for themselves and forgetting a bit what's been done before. I want everything ! Old and new, Porl, Jason, Boris, Teddy and Porl, concerts, Dvds, singles, videos, pop and dark, everything !!!
