'Beautiful Noise' now available at Rough Trade

Update (05/06/15): Also now on sale at Rough Trade NYC. And a new clip has been posted online.

How Steve Hewitt met Perry Bamonte

From Gigslut:

Perry Bamonte of the Cure has also teamed up with you in Love Amongst Ruin, how did that come about?

I’ve known Robert Smith for over 15 years and that’s how I met Perry, we met in Paris when The Cure and Placebo were playing some radio show celebration live on stage. We played, then The Cure then we played “If Only Tonight We Could Sleep” together, as some kind of super-group. Perry is a great guitarist but he might actually be playing bass in this new line up.

Thank you, Matt!

As some of you know, Matt has decided to end his Slicing Up Eyeballs site, and I just wanted to post a huge THANK YOU to him. I loved the site, and loved Matt's dedication to, and love of, the great alternative music of the 80s. He was one of the good guys, and his site will be sorely missed. Thank you so much for the love you always gave to CoF, and for carrying the torch for a genre of music that doesn't always get the coverage it deserves.

But Matt isn't really going away, as he plans to keep the Facebook and Twitter accounts going. Still, it's sad to see the death of a great site.

So I raise a glass in celebration, to Matt and SUE, and say Cheers! We all wish you the best of luck with whatever comes next.
