The Cure

We know there is more to life than the music of the Bunnymen. Talk about those other bands here.

Seems like they know when to exit. Only saw them once at the Hollywood Bowl. Smashing show and the time seemed to go by so quickly. Think they played for 3+ hours.

When Will was my partner, I asked him if he’d take me to see The Cure in Manchester. Think it was around 2016. He said no. He said he couldn’t deal with how big they got and that he’d have to sit in a big arena watching that. I said can’t we just go and watch the show? He liked their music. He said no. True story. He may change his tune later in the event that this makes its way to him. Would be typical of him.

Maybe but it seems like smithy has said that with every album release for the last 40 years. Plus he can probably afford to retire. Obviously I don't know that, with him not being a former squeeze or employed once upon a time by a mate or suchlike. But they can bag the odd massive headline it seems.

Quite liked them back in the day, bought that Standing On the Sand? ? Beach? compilation thingy on tape when I was in school but sold it long ago when I used to do the horses (back them that is, nothing more sinister in case you're wondering :eek: :redface: ). I liked the Friday I'm in Love era stuff but they sort of faded away for me after that. Bought a second-hand copy of the Sitting on the Sand thing on CD quite recently and that'll probably do me Cure-wise, always liked the cover of that one. I don't half talk some shite don't I. :wink: :lol: Will never took me to see them either.

Didn't they call it a different version depending on format? Trouble with that is you get all the nice stuff, more or less, and if that was your window on the whacky world cure and fancied an update with, er, bloodflowers, for example, then you'd need the samaritans helpline to talk you down after the opening ten minute dirge, and again later after a desperate search for something lighter. Disintegration suffers similarly but is fantastic.

Well tbf she's in good company here n'est pas? With one notable exception we're all old geezers a little bit disappointed, though admittedly with us it's mostly the musical output over the last 20 years. You should have been here back in the day psfur, it was like the wild West, disappointmentwise. Happy days eh?
