I am. But am I the only one??
with every other shoegaze band reforming these days I guess they don't want to feel left out.
They finished on a relative high (both songwriting wise and sonically) with Gift some time back. One thing they were great at (take note My Vitriol) is keeping their fans informed, drip-feeding them new material and getting new music out there. Good luck to them if they can make something of another reformation (though hopefully they can be more experimental this time).
Really not kept in touch with Dean Garcia's many side projects post-Gift, but I wonder if they'll influence a future direction.
I remember seeing Curve touring Cuckoo with Swervedriver touring Mezcal Head, great great gig.
First Prolapse now Curve? 2015 = made.
Will the Leicester Mercury give her the time off?
Just bought 'Ghosts for dead aeroplanes' having not really heard any Prolapse, great stuff!
and the accompanying gigs were in-fucking-credible. Shame they couldn't sustain it beyond that really.
and Doppelganger is much better than it was given credit for at the time. Cuckoo was a new direction, but I still enjoyed it - wasn't keen on their over-industrialisation for Come Clean, it didn't work in my view, but Gift was good.
only one if theirs I know really, but brilliant
Loved them right to the end, and was properly gutted when they broke up. Hopefully get a gig out of them at last.
For the record, I like all their albums, EPs, singles, rarities.
but I managed to sing your post to the tune of We Care A Lot.
If you listen to the quality b-sides they had knocking about the Doppelgänger era then it becomes clear that they could have put far more variety on the album - tracks like Today Is Not The Day and Sigh would have added more light and shade. I remember the album being panned for being too one-dimensional and by the time the more varied Cuckoo came out there was much less public interest.
Still listen to them all the time and I don't think their sound has dated badly at all.
no kidding, especially being that Garbage were doing similar things later and sound so much worse with age.
They had a much better realised career and plenty of pop nous to boot but I just don't want to listen to any of it again. I could happily listen to Curve anytime. The Curve bandcamp page is how wish all the bands from my shoegaze youth would organise themselves.
I can say all this now that Deep Blue isn't going to fire torpedoes at me...
they're a bit hit or miss, but spot fucking on when they hit. I think they have a better chance of being less embarrassing than anything new Ride may put out.
Haven't really kept up with garcia's SPCECO project though.
I can't even say that for Tool, my favourites.
A Curve reformation would interest me greatly. Never saw them live. Got into them after thay had split up. Bizzarely, I am friends with Debbie Smith now. One of her current musical outlets, Blindness, are a particular favourite of mind and I've seen them 30 plus times. I'll have to see what she says
I figured reunion in this case meant "Dean and Toni got back together."
Dean, Debbie & Monty all played for a while together in Spc Eco. Toni has been doing her own thing for a while, but as far as I am aware, is still interested in making music, but not the touring part.
Have enjoyed every phase of their career so far, plus somehow missed them live each time. Listen to the breadth of their back catalogue fairly regulalry.
