Here is a juicy tid bit I found on YouTube while looking for the new song, The Only One. It's The Drowning Man live from Berlin 2008. The Cure in Berlin live at the Velodrom during their "4 Tour". Great rare performance of a classic track. The audio was edited to fix the volume level and the cut off intro.

From a Japanese print of a 45 on the Virgin label. I found this gem in a record shop down in my old haunt in Ocean Beach, CA. It's the b-side of Mirror Man. From 1982, the hard to find "You Remind Me Of Gold." I've never seen it anywhere before.
There may be an American tour this summer with ABC and Belinda Carlisle and maybe a few others like A Flock Of Seagulls and Naked Eyes. OMG!!

During a Solstice Celebration last month, my friend and I were talking about Fun Boy Three. He had complained about going on a trip to the UK with the idea of hunting down rare live recordings and finding out that there were not many (if any) Fun Boy Three shows. He was told that back in the day, portable cassette recorders were still kind of new and that not many fan recordings were ever made.
When he finally got see Fun Boy Three perform years later in the US, in the early '90s, he told me they did this cool rendition of The Doors classic "The End."
I thought maybe, by now, somebody must have posted some TV footage ans sure enough -- here it is! I recorded the audio, fixed the beginning with some editing and now we have and audio track for "The End (live 1983)."
