    Though not officially a Cure album, the Glove's sole outing, 1983's BLUE SUNSHINE, received the deluxe remastered/reissued treatment along with a trio of mid-'80s Cure classics in 2006. This project, a collaboration between Cure mastermind Robert Smith and Siouxsie & the Banshees bassist Steve Severin, was released shortly before THE TOP, the Cure's most experimental record, and the Banshees' atmospheric HYAENA (which had Smith sitting in on guitar), and finds the duo indulging in darkly whimsical synth-pop tunes. Drawing their name from the Beatles' YELLOW SUBMARINE animated film, Smith and Severin offer up songs that echo both of their bands, while occasionally adding a swirling current of psychedelia, as evidenced on the propulsive "Like an Animal," featuring Siouxsie sound-alike Landray, and the playful "Mr. Alphabet Says," a kissing cousin to the Cure's "The Lovecats."
