THEY'RE LIVING in a house, a very big house, in the country. "Actually", says Robert Smith, showing me around the candlelit ground floor, smoky log fires burning in the grates, ice glistening on the stained-glass windows, "it’s Jane Seymour’s house." The former James Bond girl rented it out for a year and The Cure moved in with studio equipment to record their new album.
