Vote for Robert and The Cure

Think Robert has one of the 50 Greatest Voices in recorded history? If so, then NPR wants to know. (Thanks April G.)

"There's a poll for the best band ever at German radio channel WDR2. Until November, 5th, everyone can vote for his/her favorite band here (click C for finding Cure, The).
After voting click "Weiter" at the bottom of the site. On the next page just type in the code and click "Jetzt abstimmen". The other radio button is for participating in a hassle where you can
win tickets for Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys or Nickelback. I guess it's better to leave it clicked at "Nein" which means that you don't want to participate. (They won't let people from other countries win, I guess ;)) " (Thanks Corina)

Disintegration remaster in Spring 2010

Wow! Get all of the info and track list at the official site. Nice to be able to say that again. : ) So, worth the wait? I'm going to say YES! Oh, and In Orange and Show on DVD (and Blu-ray? Please?), Mixed Up 2, and a BBC box set (similar to the Siouxsie set?)!

Update: Slicing Up Eyeballs has a story about it. (Thanks Boyd)

No Disintegration remaster until 2010

"This just in from Hispacure: According to Universal Music Spain the Disintegration remaster will not be seen until 2010. They also mentioned that Spanish TMU does not know of any plans of the Wish remaster being released alongside the Disintegration one. This was mentioned because Spanish Rolling Stone magazine got together with Ivan from Hispacure and some other big shot at Spanish TMU to discuss the re-issues theme and write an article about it. "
