Tim Pope appeared on Soho Radio today to discuss some of his upcoming projects. During the interview he made some brief comments about The Cure's 40th anniversary documentary which he himself announced on Twitter last December. He was quick to choose his words wisely, acknowledging to host Simone Marie that whatever he says about the project will be making the rounds on social media, etc, and overall seemed a bit exasperated with Cure fans torturing him on Twitter.

Pope reiterated that the film will include previously unseen footage of The Cure with Robert Smith being heavily involved in narrating the film/telling The Cure's story.  Pope said he's hoping to see the Cure footage soon and stated that it is an amazing thing to have access to so much material that hasn't been seen before. He cautioned fans that a documentary of this nature takes a long time to put together, and emphasized several times that fans need to be patient. He wrapped up his comments by revealing the documentary will be made by next year.

Pope also shared a few kind words about Matt Johnson and The The and is excited for their first live shows in 16 years. He went on to mention he's going to film The The's sold out show at London's Royal Albert Hall in June though didn't disclose plans for that footage.

The interview included other entertaining stories about David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and Neil Young. Finally, Pope revealed that though he's met and worked with countless number of artists over the year, the one musician he said he'd love to meet is Brian Eno, and stated he's a huge fan, particularly of Eno's ambient music.
