It's good to see that Robyn remains active, his latest album 'Goodnight Oslo' has just been released. Shame that he rarely tours the UK these days, seems to concentrate on the USA. If that's where the money and sales are then good luck to him.

Cult Hero ‘I Dig You’ Canadian 7″

Cult Hero I Dig You Canadian

Cult Hero I Dig You Canadian

A truly bizarre item this.  A rare Canadian pressing on an obscure independent label for this Cure spin-off release. How this got a Canadian release is a mystery and it must have sold nothing.

The single was conceived by Robert Smith (singer/guitarist of The Cure) and Simon Gallup (then bassist of The Magspies) as a way to test their musical compatibility. Smith was considering Gallup as a prospective replacement for Michael Dempsey (The Cure's bassist at the time) "whose personality and ambitions for the band were seriously at odds" with Smith's.[1]

The songs were written for, and feature on vocals, local Horley postman Frank Bell, who is also featured on the single's artwork. They also feature ex-Cure guitarist Porl Thompson and Magspies keyboardist Matthieu Hartley amongst an extended lineup of friends and family, including Robert's sisters Janet and Margaret and local band The Obtainers.
