You’ve probably guessed that The Figurehead is a huge Cure fan. I always have been; ever since I bought my very first CD – Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me. I already had several Cure cassettes at that point.
Today I purchased the Three Imaginary Boys Deluxe Edition from itunes. This is the kind of stuff that I would have gone nuts over in the late 80’s! I mean…a Robert Smith home demo of 10:15 Saturday night!?!? This is Robert and what sounds like a Casio mumbling a quieter slower paced classic. There are other home demos on this edition as well. Tracks that didn’t make the cut for the original Three Imaginary Boys or Boys Don’t Cry (some of these hint at the gloomier Cure that would later emerge).
Want to know what the Cure sounded like before Interpol, Editors, and other soundalikes were even born? Listen HERE!
