I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
That dark album they’ve been working on for 63564 years is likely to be one of the best albums in modern times.

I'll believe it when I hear it...

Interesting. Smith always seems to talk straightforwardly, so maybe there will be something insightful shared on this so-called spat.

Robert is a bit of a joke in the UK , thought of as a fat clown who has been delivering the same kinda three songs for 40 years.
The trouble is Radiohead does their kinda stuff way better.

Here in the USA we have always been overly earnest about them. Again like Radiohead mistaking their earnested, student type melancholy for depth.
Robert has't had anythig to say for 35 years and single handledy made the term "gothic " into a jole

He is also lying here. Truth be told back in the day Robert had a kinda crush on M. Copying his beads etc , I tend to think he saw the "feud" as a kind of backhanded compliment,in reality M was just bitchy about almost everyone.
Whereas M would make simple quips and move on, Robert would have a poster of Morrissey in a changing room with tape over his mouth.

its worth rembering, nobody has every wanted sex with Robert Smith

Really?

The Cure are one of the greatest bands of all time, they are absolutely fantastic, original, different and authentic. Not two records sound the same, how many bands can say that?
Robert Smith is a genius writer and guitarrist. To say he has been writing the same song for 40 years makes no sense at all.

You might like them or not, fair enough, but their influence, legacy and talent is undeniable.

California Son-Dude, Pete who is this fat Brittish freak Bob Smith?

Pete-He is a singer in this group the Cure. I got all that Mexicans love you marketing crap from him. The Mexicans really love him. Steve Street made up this shitty smiths feud thing when you were kidnapped in Brittin and injected with meth and mind control drugs. I am sure you have no recollection.

California Son-Is there a way we can use this Bob Smith to get money from Brittish people, like put his face on a t-shirt on the mporiumuk?

Pete-No

California Son-
f*** em. Send the C&D. I do not want this fat f*** foreigner talkin' shit about me.

Is that why 65,000 people bought tickets to see them play in Hyde Park on their 40th anniversary a couple of years ago? ie because they thought Robert Smith and the Cure were a bit of a joke.

It's funny how opinions differ, I disagree entirely. The Cure are profoundly overrated. I've tried to love them, I really have! They have a couple of great singles but they are a very average band in my opinion.

Have you heard “The Same Deep Water as You” or “A Strange Day”?

Ffs. A new member and you start off by posting this pebble dash diarrhoea.

Robert Smith has a lovely wife. The only crush he had on Moz was probably wishing to crush his head with a brick.

Meanwhile Robert Smith, who wrore albums like Faith and Pornography and Head On The Door and Kiss Me and Disintegration and Wish is a joke? Not to mention a zillion fantastic b-sides. And you somehow speak for all of the UK.

Holy shit but your stupidity is staggering, even for an American.
