I'll go further and say Seventeen Seconds through Pornography, Head on the Door, Disintegration: GREAT.

The rest might be alright too, but I've not got round to bothering with it.

New page fat goth.

The album Killing an Arab is all I really needed... and Dinosaur Jr's cover of Just Like Heaven.

But I did like this reaction, because it was an obvious joke.

The opening track on Bloodflowers is absolutely lovely. I can never remember the rest.

The only good Cure songs are the novelty hits.

"Love Cats" should have had the baa-da-bap-bap-bap-bap-bada-baaah backing vocals more. Like, the entire duration of the song. Maybe then they'd have had a hit instead of waiting over forty years for the wonderful Rock 'N' Roll Hall Of Fame© to recognise them.

Bollocks. Every album up to Wish is fantastic, hard to find another band that has a run of albums that consistent.  After that, pish.

17 Seconds through Pornography is pretty much a peerless run of albums, after that I'm a bit less arsed but I do like the singles from the Japanese Dream era. Disintegration is probably their most overrated(and the one I was most disappointed when I finally got to hear it).

Remember Caterpillar?  From my memory, not having heard that for years, the opening phrase sounds like he's stuttering 'here you are.'  After that, it sounds like a stammering utterance of 'Spit the Dog.'  Is that right?  Does Carolgees' canine chum really get namechecked by Bob Smith?

Bah! Smith has been more than open about how much he loved Joy Division and I see them both as operating very much in the same zone. UP, Closer, Movement, 17 Seconds, Faith, Pornography (plus all the contemporary singles of both bands) are cornerstones of post-punk misery and utterly wonderful.

Where other basic fuckers would have "Live, Laugh, Love" on their bedroom wall, I'm afraid to admit we've got a couple of lines of Cure lyrics. In mauve on a purple background.

What a pair of twats.

Have a look at Rolling Stone’s Top 100 lists or Q magazine to see how beige people view music. Elitist, establishment, status quo, Status Quo

Total disgrace Madonna is in it and Devo Modern Lovers Status Quo aren't.

Agreed. I'm also fond of The Top.

I fucking hate Robert Smith.

What can I say? Beatles fan, innit.

I thought Smith was being kind to that awful interviewer ('I've been a Cure fan since, like, birth') considering he really didn't want to pretend he was excited by the bullshit. He's no Mark E. Smith.

I quite liked his respectful work on the Banshees' cover of Dear Prudence. (Not that far off being as good as the original.)

He also toured with them in 1979 and 1982 when they were short of a guitarist.

A uncharacteristically narky outburst from Nowhere that one, I thought.

Not really. As others have pointed out, a little bit taken aback by interviewer enthusiasm, then civil responses all the way, thereafter. Acquitted himself quite well. Can you imagine having to be Robert Smith every day? All the hair dying and back- combing and smudged eyeliner applying, while thinking to yourself " I'm ( nearly ) 60 years old, for fuck's sake.".I wouldn't want the job, would you ?
The lad did good.

Top Alan Alda lookalike Curtis *did* vote Tory, mind you. And snogged that Anushka Hempel or whatever her name was behind his missus's back.

Once got taken to Eurodisney on Smith's dime because I was hooked up with his niece Sarah at the time.  He's a big old Crawley cornball at heart.

If she'd been Morrissey's neice, it would have been a chalet in Mablethorpe and bus fare home.
