Cure not replacing DM at Pinkpop

"Today various Dutch (online) newspapers had a story about the worries of the Pinkpop festival organization whether Depeche Mode will be able to make it as headliner. After several cancellations of concerts, Jan Smeets (Pinkpop's organizer) is taking into account that Depeche Mode may not perform next Sunday May 31st. He is in contact with their management every day. In the meantime, Smeets is seriously looking for a replacement. The newspapers report that he has contacted The Cure and asked them to headline the festival. However, according to Smeets, The Cure said they will not be able to make it on Sunday."

Some Forests

A new website about cover versions of A Forest. (Thanks JC)

An Open Word to Lady Sovereign?

From Metro: The Cure’s Robert Smith has said he doesn’t like your song “So Human,” which has a sample of the band’s “Close to Me.”

If that was me, and someone sampled one of my songs and I wasn’t too keen on it, I wouldn’t let it happen. ... He approved it and he’s just a hypocrite if he says that he doesn’t like it. Maybe he’s broke. (Thanks April)
