Plus I have been listening to the hell out of the cure peel sessions, everytime it comes up. They are so about that time, and I try to think about playing that now, of actually going into a studio to record those songs. Before you know that you are good, before you've sold out arena's. That's when it's really amazing.
PAUL HARTNOLL FEAT. ROBERT SMITH - Pleaseemo-electronics...that's awesome.
KIDS - 7"
Here's a collaboration you probably didn't see coming. A post-Orbital Paul Hartnoll taking on some swish, anthemic electronica with vocal accompaniment from The Cure's Robert Smith. The result is a surprisingly organic meeting of two artists with rather different backgrounds. Smith's vocals glide with a characteristic, warm sense of melodrama that makes for a very human, expressive counterbalance to the staunchly mechanised backing track supplied by Hartnoll. This 7' version comes with a Culprit 1 remix that preserves Smith's vocal and reinforces it with an epic helping of emo-electronics.
