Fer a change, the free download fer the coming weekend will NOT be of the Hammer-Of-Thor variety. Have been listening to quite a bit of Robert Smith lately & thought me'd share this slice of gothic pop with yer.
Me remembers first coming across this outfit when me was but a wee lad watching a Top of The Pops vid & there they were in their full technicolour splendour doing The Love Cats. That was in 1983. Cue forward a decade or so & The Cure had become the UK's biggest musical export alongside Depeche Mode.
Disintegration probably represents the zenith of The Cure's commercial prowess with it reaching numero uno in the UK & second spot in the US album charts. That doesn't mean this is a sell-out effort. Quite the contrary. Full of lengthy mood pieces which has all the frazzled quality of the lead singer's hair as well as the sweetness of his cherry red lipstick, tunes like Lullaby, Pictures of You & Fascination Street simply beg you to dim the lights, put on some incense & chill the fook out.
