One of the most popular album associated with goth music, a pinnacle of effects laden sad music, a collection of Robert Smith’s tear-drenched jingles resulting from a midlife crisis…well maybe something like that.
Did you know I first started reviewing The Cure’s albums in 2015? I can’t believe it’s been almost 5 years. I think outside of the podcast I’ve covered a total of 2 (Three Imaginary Boys & 17 Seconds), but I’ve done different books and other topics relating to the band. I’m always hesitant to cover their albums because it’s such a popular topic and they mean so much to fans.
This week I’m talking about a book I really enjoyed about an artist I really love. Cured: The Tale of Two Imaginary Boys is Lol Tolhurst’s memoir about his time in The Cure and his struggles dealing with the hardships of life….it’s very enjoyable.
It’s time for some goth history! I hope you enjoy this look at The Batcave and it’s impact on goth culture today.
The making of this video was easily my most difficult to date. There was so much information and I had to compile it from so many different sources that it took around 3 months before I had actually started filming it. I’m really happy with the way it turned out and I think it accomplished exactly what I wanted it to.
On the first episode of GothCast we take a look at the beginnings of The Cure. We discuss their albums Three Imaginary Boys, Seventeen Seconds, Faith and Pornography. These first albums show a wide range of sounds and tremendous growth in a short amount of time. Listen to find out what we thought about these classic albums.
