I like how the Refections shows changed and evolved with the addition of a song here and there, hopefully these will do the same. The changearound in sets may have had something to do with people leaving, fair play. I miss seeing the streams but phones at gigs can be a pain and maybe they have cracked down on it further because of the stream coming up. I was at The The last year and it was a few days after Matt's dad dies, he asked the audience one favour - if they could please not have their phones out as it ruins things for people. Obviously loads did. The number of people shouting into their phones at the back was also bloody annoying.
Putting aside the possibility of more extra tracks - am I the only person who feels that none of the b-sides or demos feel like natural closers?
I agree with you but Babble could be the KAA closer of the Disintegration show without a doubt. Agree with steve on that one. I listened to Babble about, mmmm, 25 times now and I REALLY wish they would let Reeves loose a little bit on it. I know The Cure are NOT a jam band but I think they should make an exception. I'm not just Reeves cheer leading but I've heard him play live and Babble is definitely a song he could add his own personal spin too without it sounding odd or non-Cure like. His personal style would add to it immensely. He often (and forgive me I'm a musician but not a guitarist so if I am not using the right terminology don't shoot me haha) uses a technique where he sustains and warps the notes and he could easily do that at the beginning of Babble with like a gradual fade in sort of thing and it would sound amazing. Roger's keys are awesome on it as well. The descending notes is what makes me swoon.
