Et je lance un appel aux fans de mon coin, la Seine et Marne, pour échanger des avis sur le groupe, partager des commentaires etc...

Bonjour Isbel et bienvenue sur curefans.com!

Il y a des francais sur le forum, tu peux voir ici: http://curefans.com/en-francais/. Tu les as vu a Paris en 2008? on etait nombreaux dans cette concert!

Maintenant, beaucoup des personnes preferent discuter sur les reseaux sociaux (notament Facebook) donc pas trop d'activite sur le forum comme avant, mais on est toujours la :)

A bientot et take cure!

*Raises hand.*  Fan since 1987.  Anybody remember the Other Voices fan club?  I was a member.  Still have my tie-dye Other Voices (we used to call it OV for shorthand--just remembered!) t-shirt.  I slept in it last night!

welcome to curefans.com! :)

I don't remember Other Voices, but I do remember "Babble", it was a mainling list about The Cure:

As many other mailing lists, this one is gone.

Nowdays social networks are "killing" groups and forums I would say. There were dozens of comments and discussions in this forum about 4 or 5 years ago. But with Facebook, Twitter, etc. it seems like people is satisfied with clicking a "like" button. It's difficult to find the old long discussions from the old days. Oh well...  :roll:

Other Voices was a small and unofficial but very active and fervent fan club from the late 80s to the early 90s.  It was run by two women in Norman, Oklahoma--Ruth Fillmore and Imogen (I forget her last name).  Ruth had a website called Shadowplay at one point, but it's no longer active.  Other Voices was largely a snail mail thing--there were monthly newsletters (which drew heavily from Curenews and fan submissions, and included a lot of tour stories), contests, and other correspondence, and a lot of members became pen friends and some met up.   I often wonder what became of many of the members.  I know Autumn now does the Pictures of You website at www.picturesofyou.us.  I've come across Mindy, who was an active member, in a lot of other places.

I remember Babble, too.  I like having separate forums for bands I like (that is, separate from Twitter, Facebook, etc.), but as you say, they're a dying breed.

I'll be 42 this year and have LOVED The Cure since I was 13!!!
Their music has  been a big part of my life and I can honestly say that they are my favourite band of all-time!!  I like a lot of different kinds of music but no other music has affected me like the music of The Cure.

  :)   I'm 40 something & became a Cure fan when Disintegration came out -- then I collected their earlier music -- fell in love with The Cure!

Thanks for your reply, but I guess this was 1986 (when "Standing on a beach" was released).  :)
Can't you see I try? Swimming the same deep water as you is hard...

Quote from: Fantac on May 20, 2008, 21:59:57I honestly think the core of their fans is made of people in their 30's and 40's.

I just stumbled upon the thread.The topic reminds me of the so-called "Over Thirty Parties"
in our region.Some special contemporaries call them "f*** the rest" parties.Not so with The Cure!
In fact you're right.Quite a few people are meanwhile in their fifth life decade-incuding me-and
that's remarkable too. :smth023
Au lieu de chercher Dieu dans les œuvres, nous
nous cherchons nous-mêmes. Notre paresse est
telle que nous préférons de basses impressions
aisées, qui nous diminuent, aux grandioses qui
exigent de l'effort.
