Probably better to call this one Perth.


Well, I like to respect the actual locations and call them what they actually are â€" not just round off to the nearest big city.

This seems to confirm that Mount Claremont is an actual separate city, so...

Quote from: bomber2007 on June 22, 2007, 16:07:50The name city refers to a "local government area".
Mount Claremont is a direct suburb of Perth, it's about 8km away from the city centre of Perth, a couple of minutes drive.


But it's still autonomous, isn't it?

Just as Rosemont is independent of Chicago, and Inglewood is separate from Los Angeles.

Then what's the use of the name Mount Claremont? Why don't they just call it Perth?

Boondall seems like it is rather independent after all. Might have to update that soon. :lol:

Hollywood isn't a city. It's region near downtown Los Angeles. They don't have a government or any autonomy. It's not independent in any way. That's the difference in this case.

I agree - this should be referred to as Perth

In Australia we have Capital Cities for each state plus Major Regional Cities/Centres, each have suburbs.

unless The Cure are doing a monster tour including several suburban shows, then we really should refer to this as Perth

Similarly for the Adelaide show, I dont even know the Suburb or local government area name for the actual venue.

I also have to agree that this should be billed as PERTH... I had no idea what Mount Claremont was to be honest!!! :?
Anyway, onto other more important stuff.. I wanted to ask anyone thats is attending this gig to please take note of the set list, so I can cheat and be semi prepared for the Melb. show! I have asked a BrisVegas gig attendie to do the same, so it will be interesting to see if the set list changes at all. Cheers then PERTH people!! :smth023

not sure how that is - by my reckoning, I am 1 1/2 hours ahead of Perth, and it is only 9:41pm 4th August to me, so show only just started (8pm Perth time)

in a few hours maybe someone will have some details

I await anxiously to see what I can expect on Monday.

maybe it's a spelling mistake and it should read "4:33" instead of "4:13"? ;) now, there's something: an album (or possibly a double album!) made out of silence.

oh i see: so jason couldnt make it to the photo session so they hired some idle transvestite to fill in for him??
his hair is... :smth011

i consider this to be even more proof that they really should considered getting a new drummer.

Looks like a single release maybe?.....

"4 13" - is this 4 people, 13th album?...... i guess so.

Have to agree though, as much as i think its great that Robert et al dont care about what people think of their looks, i think Jason needs to put the pink lipstick away - its not doing him any favours....... and what happened to Porl?... is he about to join Marilyn Mansons band?!

Also quite funny that Robert's wearing the same shoes i have somewhere, although i tend to stick with the old DM's these days  8)

Thanks very, very much for posting the setlist! Sorry I've forgotten who it was that did!
I had a peek at some of the gettyimages and chainofflowers ones too... I have to say that I like the look Jason has! But then I am a bona fide freak of nature!!! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the head on Porl!! He is so very creative, and I just LOVE the whole damned thing! I'm not sure if they're real tough stickers or just painted on? He seems to have a few tats.. so they may be tattoos on his noggin'! Very brave lad if they are tattooed on... hurts like hell there (as it's on the bone!) and gives you a massive headache (so my fella tells me anyway!!).
In regards to the 4:13 new album reference, I'm wondering if Mr Smith is perhapes just dabling in the religious imagery somewhat. I don't think it's because he's particularily religious, it's just symbology really... just something to write and think about. I thought that Us or Them had slight tones of religiousness in it... maybe I'm wrong?!
Anyway, to all you Perth-ites, hope the show was all that you hoped for... I'm off to the Melbounre one, and am getting myself all organised for it (it takes me ages to prepare for these sorts of things!!! - packing is a nightmare! Oh I should point out that I live in Tasmania, and am flying over for the night!)...

The Perth setlist worked perfectly for me, not having seen them since the Disintegration tour in the UK a fair while ago it was good to hear the stripped down line up. Hoping that a good recording will surface somewhere, the Singapore one is pretty damm good but it'd be nice to have one from the night I was there.

Hahahahaha...  nothing like a little 'ultra-violence' to set the tone of a gig hey!!! I would've loved to see that to be honest... I also heard (and I apologise for this being off topic.. I'll be quick!!) that they were planning a tour over to our shores here in Oz. But I've no idea what happened to it! I have never seen 'em and am slightly jealous that you have! Maybe they'll get their arses into gear and make it over, there seems to be a bit of a 'punk' revival at the moment. We've had UK Subs and a few others tour recently! Ok... thats it back to Cure stuff now!
