“Three Imaginary Boys” by The Cure - album review

TJR says

Released on the 11th May 1979, The Cure’s debut combined a snotty arrogance with an existential anguish and set it to a lo-fi Post-Punk soundtrack. The demo to “10:15 Saturday Night” had caught Chris Parry’s attention in 1978 and led him to sign the band to his newly founded record company, Fiction Records. The track was written by Robert Smith at the age of 16 one evening while sitting at the kitchen table feeling “utterly morose” watching the tap dripping and drinking his dad’s home made beer. However, as great a start as it is, it proves to be a bit of an anti-climax. This is clearly a new band with a new sound – but it’s all attitude over aptitude at this stage…
