cure without a keyboard suck! :smth011 porl should try to play the guitar parts on his guitar and not the keyboard parts!

I wish Porl would play keyboards on some songs. There are a lot of songs they've been playing where his part isn't significant, and he would be better suited to doing something else. Play For Today comes to mind.

I think they'll get a keyboard player on stage if/when they do a tour after the upcoming one, which probably means a few years.

Um...Just wondering...Does anyone miss LOL on drums?

Not at all.  I do miss Boris, though  :rocker

Sometimes I think Lol put more passion into his drumming than Jason does... But he probably wouldn't work that well with the newer material.

Agreed: Long live Boris! :D

I hold the trio of Lol, Robert, and Simon as my favorite Cure line-up. Don't ask why...thats just the one I feel closest with...and the lineup that got me interested in the group in the first place. Porl is cool too, but I just think he (how do I say this without stirring up something) he doesn't look good with Robert and Simon. That sounds really shallow, but there have been many Cure members who haven't really fit the group's initial image, and for a while that was Porl. :cry:

But I like him alot more knowing he's stuck with the group for so long.

i dont like porl too much because he goes OTT with the guitar alot

Over-the-top?

And if that's what you meant with your enigmatic little acronym, then I agree, at least with this line-up. I haven't seen anything resembling self-control yet.
Another Curefan for The Dark Christmas album.

Cure Freak

I miss the keys and I miss Roger. I really loved the way he played.
But, I doubt there is going to be another keyboardist.

And, another note, I miss Boris. He put his all into his playing.

I don't think they'll bring back the kb but I wish they would.

A guitar that plays the keyboard bits can never replace a keyboard tht plays the keyboard bits.  :rocker :rocker :rocker :rocker

I have to agree. You can never, totally, replace a keyboard or it's sound. no matter how well,it's executed on a guitar.

I'm missing the keyboards too really.
They did actually add some more texture to the whole sound.
I got the Festival DVD for xmas & it took me a while to get used to the sound & even now I still find it difficult.
The Miami show was the same & although the arrangements were pretty good, the execution was not the best in all cases.
The Download festival was also notable for the, what still seem experimental, guitar parts. The intro to A Forest was a shambles. If they are to do it without keyboards, then they should opt for the short intro.
Having said that, I do like IOTICS withouth the keys.

I agree with this, I loved the keyboards in the band, and was totally freaked out when I heard ther was none in the concerts here... Lovecats is not the same without keyboards.. but I still take my hat off to Robert and the band for the improvising with guitar sounds.. altough not my flavour, it still was the best concert I've been too..  :rocker

TBH Lara Of all the recordings I've heard from the 2007 shows (still to hear Brisbane...anyone?), the Melbourne one is a "stand out" show for me too.
It seemed to be a really big sound & very tight.
Download fest wasn't bad, but if you fcuk up the beginning of the first song, then people (well me actually) will just pick holes.
