Speculation & rumors: Mexico edition

"More rumours, today some newspaper published that The Cure could be the major act in this year's edition of Cumbre Tajín Mexico. The next day, 16th January the line-up & date will be revealed." (Thanks Jorge and @IvanGallardo34)

This one really seems like nothing more than speculation, but at least we don't have long to wait and see if there's any truth to it.

Update: And to no one's surprise, the announcements have been, and no Cure.

Do you own a copy of Five Swing Live?

"I have started a venture to try and discover where in the world the 5000 copies of FIVE SWING LIVE are located. A fun thing for me to do and maybe a bit of historical info for The Cure’s web site.

I am looking for the names of the owners (optional) and where they live and the NUMBER of their copy (with photo of CD cover if possible). I think this would be an interesting study to discover just where these have ended up and how? The diversity of Cure fans and all things Cure never ceases to amaze me. I started yesterday and have received a few replies already and have been sent a couple of web sites that have provided me with emails or contacts of Cure fans with FSL CD." (Thanks Murray)

If you have a copy, or know someone who does, please let Murray know at murraymcwhirter(at)bigpond(dot)com. Thanks!

If you're looking to buy one, there are a few listed at Amazon Marketplace and ebay 1 - 2 - 3 - 4.
(Thanks Dayna, Paul, Aaron, and Autumn)

Here's what we have so far...
