The Cure – A Forest

For Throwback Thursday I went digging in one of my plastic bins for some old treasures. There was my banana sticker collection, lots of mail, newspaper clippings, magazines and fanzines, a few handmade toys, two railroad spikes, a bottle with some dirt, and concert tickets.

The Cure at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, Aug. 6, 1987, $14.50, which included the service charge.

This was for the Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me tour, though I was more of a fan of their earlier stuff. There was a young woman in my office a few years ago who had discovered The Cure based on that album and thought it was great. I thought that was not a very accurate reflection of the band I knew. I liked it well enough but it felt weird for them to be almost mainstream.

In looking for a video I discovered that Rhino has put up all the old original Cure videos that you used to see if you waited up past midnight on a Sunday to see 120 Minutes on MTV. There’s the creepy video from Charlotte Sometimes! The goofy Love Cats video! There’s quite a few of them. It’s fun to see the different Robert Smith hair and makeup phases over the years.
