Published Aug 23, 2010Eighties goth rock legends the Cure are still going strong, but that hasn't stopped frontman Robert Smith from taking the time to revisit some of the band's classic material. Earlier this year, the band released an expanded version of their 1989 masterpiece Disintegration. Now, Smith is reportedly working on a reissue of the 1990 remix album Mixed Up, as well as a box set of BBC performances.
Slicing Up Eyeballs points to a tweet by founding member Lol Tolhurst, who left the band in 1989. He wrote, "Just realized looking thru my recent emails from Robert he tells me that he's working on the Cure at the BBC and mixed up remaster..oops!" A second tweet added, "..Not Cure In Orange as previously reported! But anyway the dvd of it should be out soon enough...."
This was a correction of an earlier comment made by Tolhurst, when he told L.A.'s KXLU 88.9 FM that Robert Smith was working on a reissue of the concert film The Cure in Orange. Last year, Smith announced his intention to release In Orange on DVD, but there's currently no update on that plan.
Chain of Flowers reports that, on the radio show, Tolhurst also said that he had sent Smith an email, offering to participate in a possible reunion for the 30th anniversary of Faith.
The BBC collection and Mixed Up reissue are expected out sometime next year.
