Besides having scans of most record sleeves in the
discography, you can find all
EP/LP sleeves on a
page as well.
Being media darlings at one point sure helps to have lots of group
pictures. Some are available from this page:
These are only a few of the ones out there. To get around mentioning
things twice I've put all links on a separate page.
- Pictures left and right.
- From just about any source: booklets, magazines etc.

Videos, the new art? Modern art maybe, if you consider the signal /
noise ratio of one good one in a hundred. CURVE has made
quite a few of which most were only played a couple of times on
eMpTyV. Not having seen any/all of their videos must be the second
worst frustration (after of course not owning the Superblaster
EP) of the average CURVE-fan.
Stills and movies
Below you will find stills and MPEG movies of various
CURVE videos. The stills are the nicest: jpeg pictures ready for
use. Videos that were only digitized in full will be used to make some
seperate stills if I find some more time.
On a separate page there are stills from:
Ten Little Girls |
Coast Is Clear |
Faît Accompli |
Missing Link |
Basically all except Blindfold and Chinese Burn.
Chinese Burn can be found on Mark's web page (September,
Coast is Clear and Clipped have been grabbed and
converted into mpegs. Grab them from our
I've added everything I know about the following videos (supposingly
all) and maybe a note or two about what they're like. If you don't
care for subjective descriptions, click ahead and behold the lined up
stills and links to some movies.
- Blindfold: which was aired on a show called SNUB
TV in the UK and described on the list as:
video (which I still have somewhere), is mostly black and white
shots of them in the studio... the images appear to be fucked up
with white noise... a bit like the music!"
- Coast is clear: the first to be shown on MTV. Filmed in
black and white with blue colourisation on parts. The lighting makes
it look a bit like an underwater atmosphere and has the band playing
in a dark room. Some echo-y delay and colour wash effects as
Digitized and ready on the
MPEG only at the moment.
QT soon maybe? no sound!
- Clipped: even commercially available on a Melody
Maker video compilation.
Probably the most colourful video (apart from
Superblaster) with lots of colourisation fx. Features the
band not playing their instruments for a change in
dream/wake scenes in a house. This one's also available as an
MPEG from the
- Missing Link.
- Chinese Burn.
- Coming Up Roses was supposed to have a video made by Floria
Sigismondi, but this was cancelled (too expensive?).
- Alligators Getting Up should, if it actually is released, will
have a video.
Because of the strangling policy of our local fighter for copyrights,
you won't find any samples here. I'm making an exception for a nice radio
interview, done after the release of Doppelgänger for a show called
La Stampa for VPRO radio.
This interview survived until now thanks to Diana and has been sampled
and encoded by PAtrick.
Note! The samples are in the
- Part 1
- Part 2
- Part 3
MPEG3 format and
sampled at a low bitrate (mono, 11kHz, 16kbps encoding) to save space.
If you're using an amp-based player, I've found that amp version 0.7.4
(ie. winamp 1.0) does not grok these files yet but 0.7.5 (ie. winamp 1.6)
