This weeks copy of NME, the big NME Shockwaves Awards 2009 issue, come with a free CD featuring some of the leading lights of today’s indie scene covering tracks by The Cure (who received the “God-like Genius” award)
The CD includes this cover of ‘Fascination Street’ by UK ElectroPoppers Metronomy, which is kinda’ odd:
While we’re on the subject of The Cure covers I have to lay this on you.
Lady Sovereign‘s next single is ‘So Human’ and completely riffs off The Cure’s ‘Close To Me’. I would say around 99% of The Cure fans I know will be vomiting blood upon hearing this track, but I kinda’ like it!
