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.
