The Cure: Mixed Up Kid

Betty Page, Vox, December 1990

If Disintegration led to just that for self-confessed 'English werewolf in Crawley' Robert Smith, what on earth will happen to him with the release of Mixed Up, The Cure's new double album bid for dance posterity? Betty Page talks to the not-so-young Bob (31) about how it feels to be re-mixed, and discovers that some of his curious new pastimes go with a swing.
