Good news, I look forward to a new album and live shows (hopefully close to my home)!  :smth020

This one will please you, David.
http://post-punk.com/an-interview-with-slowdive/

They do like The Cure (no huge surprise, but nice to read anyway).

Quote
Rachel: That’s Michael, our sound engineer.

Nick: Who worked with The Cure.

Post-Punk: Oh really?

Nick: So another connection, you see.

Post-Punk: I am a big Cure fan.

Rachel: So are we.

Nick: The best sound engineer they’ve ever had, apparently. Which is why he’s back with us.

Rachel: Yeah! Hahaha!

Post-Punk: I wonder if Robert’s a fan of you guys.

Nick: You know what, there have been times where there have been interviews that he’s done, like on radio in the UK or print interviews, where he has dropped our name in as bands that he was interested in around that time.

Rachel: Has he?

Nick: Yeah, yeah. Ride opened for him at Wembly Arena back in, I don’t know, ’91 or ’92 or something and they toured with Cranes, who at the time we were really close to.

Sorry I have not been around too much, but I am more focused on Slowdive lately as they have returned after 20 years. Saw them four times already and will see them for the 5th time this Sunday in Poland.



So beautiful. If anyone gets a chance, don't miss them!

Cool, a Syd Barrett cover!  :smth023

Crazy fans, eh? 5 times already!  :o
So far they were nowhere close to my home, but I hope it will happen someday.

Ulrich, anywhere from 5-10 Slowdive gigs are available for download on dimeadozen right this minute.  If you are unable, I can get them for you and pass them along somehow.  FYI...

Thanks, but you're talking to the wrong person. It's David who has been to several gigs this year and will go see them again near Xmas! I like Slowdive, but do not collect bootlegs.

No new recordings by Slowdive planned so far?

Meanwhile, there's this new "supergroup" planning an album:

Slowdive, Mogwai, Editors Members Form New Group Minor Victories

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/slowdive-mogwai-editors-members-form-new-group-minor-victories-20160222

Quote
Slowdive's Rachel Goswell, Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite and Editors' Justin and James Lockey have come together to form a new project called Minor Victories, with the group's self-titled debut due out June 3rd.

The band recorded the album together even though they spent almost no time together in the studio: The collaboration was formed entirely online, with the members sending each other song fragments, ideas and finished recordings. Justin Lockey served as the album's producer.

"Starting a band where some of the people have never met each other is something I've never heard of," Braithwaite said in a statement, while Goswell called the project "the most exciting thing I've done to date."

yeah, too bad they will play only in UK so far, hopefully they go to mainland Europe, then I will certainly go to see them!

Didn't Slowdive themselves plan on new recordings? Would like to see them live (and/or Minor Victories) if they'll play anywhere near me.
