Goth war

From the Depeche Mode news service:
We are getting preliminary reports that Robert Smith (lead singer of The Cure) is looking to stop further production of the album "Playing The Angel". It is said, through sources, that Robert has a concern that the "Mister Feathers" character that Anton Corbijn created for the "Playing The Angel" cover bears more than a passing resemblance to the cover for The Cure's "Boys Don't Cry" single.
Smith does have a point - both are dark figures turned slightly ascew, both have crazy hair, and both are on album covers for similar bands...but one is just a drawing, and it doesn't look substantially similar to Smith (where are those high tops!). Nevertheless, it's an interesting piece of info.
