Robert Smith's Cure Album History
« on: April 12, 2008, 17:40:54 »
There are two videos on youtube with Robert talking about most of the albums they've released:




If anyone wants to comment on anything from this interview, be my guest. I myself would love to get some more info on it, like when it was filmed (all I know is that the last album he "reviews" is Bloodflowers)?

I found this video in 2003, so it can't be any newer than that. My guess is that it came out around 2000-2001.

This was also "re-broadcast" on Yahoo! Live @ Launch along with those sessions they had back in June 2005. Anybody remember those?

this is one of the retrospective documentaries they did after the release of 'bloodflowers'/during the dream tour. there are several of these rather similar kind of documentaries, for many tv stations/channels in several countries (there's at least one made for MTV (exclusively for MTV italy(?)), one for MuchMusic in canada, one exclusively for canal+ in belgia etc. about this one i don't know which channel this one was originally made, though). all are slightly different and the interview footage was exclusively shot for every program, but anyway all of these are based on a similar kind of idea: a sort of stroll through the band history based on robert being interviewed and/or talking us through it, then bits and pieces of promo videos/live clips shows in between. 
all of these end up/stop in 'bloodflowers' album and robert repeating how they want to go out with their best work & blahblahblah - ahh that old liar. ;)

(besides, judging from the look of robert alone, it's very clearly bloodflowers era footage.)
