New version of Friday for Secret 7"?

"Larry The Duck (DJ on Sirius/XM) just reported that as part of the Wish re-issue, Friday I'm in Love is being re-recorded for a 7" release for Record Store Day next April." (Thanks Brian)

Goes without saying that this is in no way official or confirmed until it's on the official site, and could be a misunderstanding on Larry's part. We do know that Friday will be getting released as part of the Secret 7" Record Store Day 2012 event, and that 'Wish' Deluxe is scheduled for release in 2012, but there has been no official word on a re-recording of Friday.

  1. Probably a re-master instead of a re-recording? Just my guess.

  2. It's just incredible because a couple of days ago, I went on the official site to write a word to Robert asking for a re release of "Friday I'm In Love" like it'd been the case with "Boys Don't Cry" when the first Best of came out ! I promise I didn't know but I'm really happy to find myself a clairvoyant ! Happy Xmas to everyone, before what could be a fantastic new year !!

  3. Christian - Yeah, that seems more likely. But you never know. Robert has been full of surprises lately. Bet he has quite a few more for 2012 : )

  4. Robert Claus? Santa Smith? Whatever you call him, I can't wait to see what he has in his bag o' tricks for 2012! My wish? That he'll fill my stocking...with music, of course! =)

  5. All I want for Curemass is a new album and tour. 4 year plan don't fail me now. Bestival and Reflections were amazing. Keep it up!

  6. Maybe he wants to right the mistake in the mastering of the original.From Guitar Player magazine September 1992
    "GP: Friday I'm In Love is a quarter-tone sharp on the record, halfway between D and E-flat. Was the tape sped up?

    Robert: Yeah, though that was an accident. I was playing with the vari-speed and forgot to turn it off. But the whole feel changed, and the fact that it's the only song on Wish that's not in concert pitch really lifts it out and makes it sound different. After working on the record for months, hearing something a quarter-tone off makes your brain take a step backwards."

  13. larry the duck was a mainstay at wlir/wdre, a venerable radio station right near me here in long island, ny, which in the 80s became arguably the most seminal and influential alternative/new wave/modern rock/college rock/postpunk/etc etc etc station in the world (though LA's kroq gets all the ink)...and they were particularly instrumental in breaking bands from across the pond here in america...u2, the cure, depeche mode, erasure, new order, the clash/bad, peter murphy, the bunnymen, the banshees, the furs, xtc, squeeze, etc. all saw their profiles greatly raised by the airplay and support given them by the old 'lir and later 'dre...i worked college radio nearby and we had a relationship with the station, i know a few people who were on-air there...i say all this to preface my assertion that larry may well know what he's talking about--he is a real vet and pro of this side of the biz.
