The short-lived side project The Glove is best remembered for bringing together Robert Smith of The Cure and Siouxsie and the Banshees bassist Steven Severin. But the group, which released a single album, Blue Sunshine, in 1983, also featured vocalist Jeanette Landray — who looks back on the experience after 30 years in this video produced produced by the team raising funds to launch Post-Punk Magazine.
In the short clip, Landray, now an artist who goes by J Sabo, says:
“When I look back at the last 30 years and fabulous experiences I have had, The Glove project is definitely one of my favorites. One thing I remember is Steven and Robert never compromised their art — and that’s been a lesson I bring on board whenever I’m creating my own work. So happy 30th anniversary, boys. Thanks for having me as your guest. It was an absolute pleasure. And thanks Post-Punk Magazine for the celebration.”
Landray doesn’t indicate whether she’d like to work with Smith and Severin again. The former Banshee, however, in a 2010 interview said he was interested in reviving The Glove, and that Smith told him it was “just a matter of time” before that happened.
Post-Punk Magazine is a Berlin-based project hoping to launch an English-language print publication in February/March “covering classic and new post-punk, coldwave, minimal wave, shoegaze, art-punk, indie and more.” The magazine’s publishers are seeking support via Kickstarter, and so far have raised more than $3,000 toward their $85,000 goal.
