mmm yes, it kind of works.

Hated CC at the O2 gig, but maybe it wasn't their best set.

Looks like the song is a cover of Platinum Blonde

The Washington Post on the collaboration Smith-Crystal Castles

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/blog-post/2010/10/_robert_smith_is_not_in_love.html

"For all the sad goth kids of the '80s missing those beautiful, maudlin Cure songs, a new song released online Wednesday should have them searching for their black eyeliner again. The distinctive voice of Robert Smith, the Cure's frontman, appears over the electronic-synth single "Not In Love" by the band Crystal Castles. It's an odd pairing that completely works."

All sad goth kids of the '80s? Wtf?  :lol:
