The Cure live at Wembley, 19-26 December 1987

With a new Cure album (and tour?) in the pipeline this seems topical. It’s a pretty funny review as it goes. Amazing to think that more than 20 years ago The Cure were playing a 3 night residency at Wembley arena.

Never been a massive fan myself but they’ve released some absolutely killer singles time, and time again, so good luck to Bob and whoever else makes up The Cure these days.

But really, it doesn’t matter what I think, or indeed what you think. No, what matters is what Ms Dayglo thinks. She doesn’t add people willy nilly y’know and it’s that bitchin’ punk attitude of hers that just takes my breath away.
