I think I was introduced to The Cure via The Kiss in ’86? Although the album is lost in the mists of time, it was a big hit at our place. I bought a fair few more Cure albums, but the one that I mostly strongly associated with was this one:
Those haunting eyes on Fat Robbie… so, you know, “haunted”.
Anyhow, I took to listening to this tape in 1988 while on student exhange. My friends there were all New Wavers, and an album like this just made me fit right in.
Oh, favourite song? Fascination Street.
