Algedly there was a gig in Grenoble in 1985 where Lourence sang "Wild Thing" in order to celebrate 9 years of the band on stage...

Any ideas of known recording of this?!

Lyon?
Are you guys not talking about the concert in Koln? "Bizarre Festival"...I remember the keyboards from ROGER didnt sound at the beginning from "Shake dog Shake"...

I would really like to see the video of Lyon98. This thread made me curious and I read a few reviews of the concert on chainofflowers and what I read :shock: . At that moment I knew that I have to see this video :D .

No, I think there's a consensus that the Lyon show was a drunken disaster as well!

The Bizarre Fest definitely had it moments, but it seems that Lyon did too. One day I'll get a good video of this...

Sorry dude, as the first post had the subject "Bizarre Festival" I thought you did mean this one from Koln...

Now I am curious as well :smt017

The recordings I know of this don't have Wild Thing. There is some debate as to whether it was actually played at this venue.

Let me do some checking...

Well I saw Shake Dog Shake from Bizzare Festival and it apears that Roger is not there when song starts... he runs over to the keyboards pretty late... cameras show him coming from the front of keyboards behind... smiling.

Not that he was essential for the song. Shake Dog Shake works great with or without keyboards...

Concerning Lol singing "Wild Thing" ... I didnt find this recording nor is this gig mentioned at known resources (besides 'Curenews' where I originally saw it)...

uff

i guess it was lol. Once i found a mp3 being shared somewhere as the cure cover of Wild Thing. It had very bad quality. I lost it when my drive was gone.
Hmmm... but concerning on you reaction, maybe it was just a fake song... or not... i really don't know how is Lol's singing voice. And as i said it had very bad quality.

According to cure-concerts.de, the only known recording of Wild Thing is from the second night of New York '87. I think I might know the recording you're talking about. I got it off a P2P network a long time ago. The quality is terrible. But on this one it's surely Robert. I also have a version  I got from curetrade some months ago with better sound, but it's the same show.

Toward the end Robert starts singing/talking in a really strange voice (unless Lol took over at that point), but I don't know. It's still not Grenoble '85, that's for sure.

So... ??? :roll:

Whats the story with The Cure PEEL SESSIONS for Japaneese Whispers, The Top and Head On The Door?!

I heard only two songs (Just One Kiss and Six Different Ways) and I heard that Peel didnt play them after HOTD...

These sessions are extremely rare mentioned so I thought I should ask...


PS

And another off topic thing:
(silly one)
Is Robert SMOKER?! I think he is. I suspect.But I did not see any new photos of him with cigarette.
Any other members?!

PS pt2

I dont smoke, and I dont endorse it.
It just bloody bothers me!!!

The Cure did not play a Peel Session for the Japanese Whispers era. What you heard was the Kid Jensen session, which is also where "Ariel" comes from. The Top session is extremely rare, and The Head on the Door session more common. They played "The Exploding Boy" on that one, which is kind of interesting. You can find a lot of info about Cure radio and TV sessions here:

I've always wondered the same thing about Robert and smoking. I've only seen one photograph of him with cigarette. It was in the Ten Imaginary Boys book. If he does, he sure is good at concealing it!

I know that Simon, at least at one time, enjoyed a good :smt033. I read an article about a press conference from '92 that said, "Simon is hauling away on a joint." I've seen Boris smoke in a video before. And Lol... Well, I think we all know he was a smoker.

Well, the pictures of all members with cigarettes are very common on Pornography (and all before) pictures.

And Robert is mentioned in one of the books that he had to quit cigarettes circa HOTD (or even The Top) becouse his health problems...

But then... I clearly remmember that I saw (or dreamed though) that there was an article (circa 'Bloodflwers') in which some journalist and Robert and few other blokes go out on drinking binge and interview where Robert smokes 'Gouloisse' or some such...
