25 years of News, rumors, minutiae about The Cure
I never picked it up, the samples sounded terrible.
Great article. And JPX, it's actually surprisingly good, and I was one of the fierce naysayers. FS remixes suck, but the rest is quite enjoyable, ESPECIALLY EHS SWID AND TPB!!!!
Indeed, both remixes of SWID are brilliant, and I find SWID the most lackluster of all the singles.
It's not as bad as I thought it would be. However it is not essential listening....
My favorite quote from the first article: "drag the material out onto a liquor licensed dance floor."Nice! I LOL'd.The SWID remix is so great! I love it more than any of the others.
Good article! I was on vacation last week so I haven't had a chance to get my copy yet. So I've been listening to them on-line & I still like them with the exception of TPB. I'll try the stores tomorrow, I think they will have a few copies but I'd rather be going out to get the new album instead of the EP! Only 35 days to go now!!! craig we need a countdown ticker on here!!!
I STILL haven't managed to find a copy of this bloody thing yet; I'm starting to think it just doesn't exist in the UK...
Actually Andrew, I must diverge from you there. I find the 65 DOS remix to be quite compelling (barring the FS segment). And I like the other remixes pretty well, esp. the other SWID remix. And, as I said, that's interesting, cuz I find SWID to be the weakest of the singles. I like how the remixes prove that there is a good song buried within SWID after all. The EHS SWID makes me want to slam dance, and I have never slam danced in my life. And EHS TPB is very uplifting. All in all, a damn good EP, from my POV. :-)
