The Cure have launched a special standalone website dedicated to the upcoming “Disintegration: Deluxe Edition” that features videos, liner notes and photos plus streaming audio of 20 additional demos and live tracks that won’t be featured on the 3CD set which is to be released on June 8. The additional set got the name “Alternative Rarities 1988-1989, the collection of unreleased tracks” and is an extra to the 20 outtakes which will be appearing on the upcoming reissue (to be released as a 3 CD deluxe edition, digital download, and a double gatefold vinyl). Head for www.TheCureDisintegration.com or download right here.
The complete set features 13 of Robert Smith’s home and full band demos, three studio mixes and four live cuts, including a recording of “Faith” from a 1989 concert in Rome. The rest of the tracks are songs that ended up on “Disintegration”, that became B-sides or that are leftover session material, including a different version of “Delirious Night” which appears on the deluxe edition. Also added are 2 previously unheard full-band jams: “Tuned Out” on RTV5″ and “Fuknnotfunk”, an odd foray into funk.
Swedish electropop/new wave duo Kite from the southern parts of Sweden has just signed with Progress Productions. Their first release will be an EP with four songs.
The story of Kite started when Christian Berg (Yvonne, Strip Music) asked
Nicklas Stenemo (The Mo, Melody Club) to sing on one of Christian’s
instrumental songs. The day after the demo version of ”My girl and I” was
finished. They started to make songs at a daily basis in Nicklas’ studio where
Christian’s love for monotone synth melted together with Nicklas’ pophits.
One day Nicklas sold his Fender guitar and the band Kite was born.
