Robert with Tony Hawk

Update: I asked Tony if he remembered where/when this was taken, and here's his reply: "in Rome, Euro VMA's afterparty, 2004." Thank you, Tony. : )

"Tony Hawk posted this on his Twitter today (photo here).No explanation of when it was taken... i've never seen Robert look so relaxed in a fan photo! LOL. (Tony is a cool guy - long time Cure fan)" (Thanks Morris)

Classic CoF Strikes Back

I promised it would be back, and I always keep my word. : ) Classic CoF is back. Still has a few dead links and broken images, but should be functional.

Cure removed from the Interscope website

In an update to the rumor about The Cure splitting with Universal/Interscope/Geffen, Interscope/Geffen has removed them from their list of artists on their website. Still there by searching, but gone from the active roster, just as Friend of CoF previously said. They are still listed on the Suretone website, however. And of course, The forum has been shut down. No idea what all of this means, but it does seem to confirm that something is going on with the labels. I think RS really needs to post his first tweet. : )
(Thanks to emsywink for the tip about the Interscope website)

Later...with Jools Holland repeat

OvationTV will air Later...with Jools Holland on Sept. 9th at 4pm and 7pm, and on Sept. 9th/10th at 2am. This should be the episode recorded on Oct. 19th, 2004, with The Cure doing Taking Off, Boys Don't Cry, and alt.end, along with a Robert interview. (Thanks Toni E)

Cure covers

"Two members of Supergrass played a number of covers in London last night under the name Hot Rats and finished with a pretty good version of Love Cats. The NME has the story here." (Thanks Fab G)

"TV ad here in France features a cover of 'Close To Me' being used for a new fragance by Cacharel called 'Scarlett'. Don't know who's that girl but the cover is out of interest." (Thanks David)

Something awful in Australia?

Update: Watch the episode here. May not work outside of Australia. (Thanks Jeff)

"This could be hideous but...if you're in Australia, watch channel TEN on Tuesday 1st September 2009 at 7h30PM. Shaun Micallef will be hosting his whole show dressed as RS...could be...something....judging by the promos Ive seen, he's one ugly RS. impeccable taste the man has though..." (Thanks ML68)
