... maybe you are less keen on the noisier end of things! Looking up on wiki it seems that frontman John Robb is from Blackpool like Robert was - wonder if they knew each other?

I forgot to ask him about this!  ;) Chatted with him last night after the Membranes' club gig in Stuttgart (which was a "last minute" show, special offer, entry only 10 euro). The gig was very good, I like their kinda "post-punk" sound (in the vein of PiL etc.). They are currently on tour supporting The Sisters Of Mercy and plan to tour in their own right next year. Catch them if you can!  :)

The film was released on VHS, CDI and Laserdisc, but is now one of the many Cure live concert films to be out of print.

Less than two years after former New Order bassist Peter Hook sued ex-bandmates Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert over their business practices, both sides have reached an agreement.

Unconfirmed news and rumours / Re: Cure movie??
« Last post by Ulrich on September 19, 2017, 10:02:45 »
that would be awesome, but is this supposed to be official , with Robert too, or a side project like Cured?

As mentioned above, Lol hinted that his book "Cured" might be turned into a movie. At this point in time no "official" involvement of Robert or The Cure is known.

For me, it all will stand or fall with the actors. If they will look similar to Lol and Robert, it could be good.

(However, I can't see this being "in sync" with any other Cure projects, it will "just" be a movie about the Tolhurst/Smith companionship, like the book. Receiving clearance for the music shouldn't be a problem though, seeing Lol and Robert are getting on well these days.)

It would be awesome to have something like this, along with that DVD/BR Robert teased so many years ago, and obviously their new (and last?) album.

Yes, I think Lol has been working on getting Cured made into a film. He's talked about it at the book signings and events. It's going to be incredible.

After seeing England is Mine , the Morrissey/Marr movie, which was produced by Roger, I asked Lol about him and Roger getting together and doing something similar about Robert and Lols meeting and the formation of The Cure?.
Two Imaginary Boys the Movie??!!
He replied saying there was already something in the pipeline!!!!! Not with Roger though!😀😀.

It’s been an unbelievable 40 years since iconic musician and singer Robert Smith took on the role of frontman for his school band The Easy Cure.

Nice pic from 1989 (don't think I ever saw this before - band look a bit shell-shocked to step from the boat to find waiting journalists...)!

Once you click on a torrent and see the details, all you have to do is click on the 'Torrent File' line, it should be underlined and a different color than the rest of the page.  You also have to have a bit-torrent client, I've used micro-torrent for years now and it works great.  Do you want burned CDs or FLAC files?  I can put 8 or 9 shows on two DVD+Rs if you want to do it that way.  Also picked up the Phoenix show from June 4th 2008.  The set list is almost identical to Austin (The Big Hand is on there too, great song) and it sounds even better.  I've got nearly every show from 2008, missing a few from June, Charlotte, the two NYC shows, and the Florida shows although I do have Sunrise on video.  Do you want specific shows, or stuff from a bunch of different years?
thanks again for your time!

I just have discovered that i have to be promoted in dimeadozen to download the torrents, so i just sent an email to administrators and now i have to wait...(crosses fingers)
I also read the faq and seems i'll have to download recent torrents , so i can have a decent ratio, and later on go for the older torrents, most of the cure seem to be quite old,  and not be under 0.25.
Fair enough, i hope i choose the righ ones and don't let my ratio go wrong :-D

As for what i want.....! as much as i can handle! But my priority is good audio quality, don't exactly know which ones are , but i would say live performances that were aired on TV/internet so the source isn't someone recording with a phone. For example Primavera Sound or festivals like that. But anything is welcome.
If i had to choose, concerts with rare songs, like b sides (Join the Dots) and less popular songs like The Kiss, Bananafishbones etc....

Thanks again!
