Peel Sessions : The Cure

Another in the occasional series made possible due to the wonderful exploits by some wonderful YouTube Up-loaders. I want to highlight some of those bands that John Peel had recorded sessions for his show over the years.

Today we have The Cure, who for me produced all their good work by 1982. They were a breath of fresh air expanding the long instrumental phases of tracks to the limit. With Robert Smith they had someone who could write a decent song too. In the trilogy of ‘Seventeen Seconds‘, ‘Faith‘ and ‘Pornography‘ they developed this sound even on tour too. Sadly for me they only every now and then produced some tracks to match that era.

04 December 1978 – Killing An Arab, 10.15 Saturday Night, Fire In Cairo, Boys Don’t Cry

09 May 1979 – Desperate Journalist In Ongoing Meaningful Review Situation, Grinding Halt, Subway Song, Plastic Passion, Accuracy

03 March 1980 – A Forest, Seventeen Seconds, Play For Today, M

07 January 1981 – Holy Hour, Forever, Primary, All Cats Are Grey

21 December 1981 – The Figurehead, One Hundred Years, Siamese Twins

30 July 1985 – The Exploding Boy – Six Different Ways – Screw – Sinking

Many thanks to the up-loader.
