The Glove’s 1983 Blue Sunshine will be reissued as an individually numbered 2LP set on blue vinyl for Record Store Day next month, featuring not just the full album but the 16 demos originally included on the 2006 expanded CD reissue.
Severin, the former Siouxsie and the Banshees bassist, had posted cryptically on his Facebook page in late January that “there is GLOVELINESS for collectors coming in April,” referring to the short-lived band he formed with The Cure’s Robert Smith in the early ’80s.
The Cure’s Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me also is due for a red-vinyl reissue for Record Store Day.
This year’s Record Store Day falls on April 20, and while the full list of exclusives has not yet been posted, the blog Wax Poetic — as it does every year — has amassed an impressive list of confirmed U.S. releases. Among this year’s U.S. and/or U.K. titles are releases from The Jesus and Mary Chain, Echo & The Bunnymen, Hüsker Dü, Robyn Hitchcock, Paul Weller, Wire and Duran Duran (see links below).
