The Cure – “Why Can’t I Be You?”
A new clip from the forthcoming Tim Pope-directed concert documentary ANNIVERSARY: 1978-2018 Live in Hyde Park London has been released, and it sees The Cure performing “Just Like Heaven.” ANNIVERSARY is set to come paired with CURAETION-25: From There To Here/From Here To There from their set at the 25th Meltdown Festival. “Robert contacted me, I got an email at 2:30 in the morning with him saying to me, ‘Uh, fancy filming in Hyde Park in two or three weeks?’” Pope explained to Billboard. “I had to scramble around to get all the equipment and people we’d need.”
INXS – “Never Tear Us Apart”
INXS concert film Live Baby Live is hitting the big screen for the first time next month, and today a live clip of the band performing “New Sensation” at Wembley Stadium has been released. The full flick was originally released on video in 1991, and now, the footage from the Wembley Stadium gig has been fully restored from the original 35mm film to a new widescreen 4L Ultra HD version. The powerful performance of “New Sensation” sees the giant crowd going wild as the band play along to the 1988 hit.
Kate Bush – “Running Up That Hill”
Hamilton’s Ellevator have released a cover of Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.” The band’s cover of the 1985 hit adds a modern twist to the gritty tune, with synths and layered, resonating guitar lines. Frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche’s throaty vocals stay true to the original tune as she sings lines like, “And if I only could/ I’d make a deal with God/ And I’d get him to swap our places.”
Talking Heads – “And She Was”
Talking Heads’ Johnathan Demme-directed concert film Stop Making Sense is set to air at the historic Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park in honour of the 35th anniversary of its original release. A tribute act called Start Making Sense is set to perform in a recreation of the iconic flick.
Sonic Youth – “Kool Thing”
Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon has released her debut solo album, No Home Record. “Most of the songs have something to do with L.A.,” Gordon explained in an interview with Vanity Fair. “Even the name of the record: No Home Record. When you move back to a place, it’s familiar, but nothing is ever the same. It’s different than when you move to a new place and you feel like you can reinvent yourself. I realized I don’t have this sense of home. My sense of home now is, like, wherever my daughter is, or my close friends.”
