TRANSCRIPT

Familiar Names

Another outfit that just keeps getting better, and stays unpredictable to boot. On their third single they find a middle ground between the wall-eyed starkness of the first and the mellifluous melancholy of the second. Rapidly locomotivating bass and drums and bile-soaked vocals are offset by delicate, bittersweet guitar. "Train" rides into the run-off grooves over a jarring, percussive clattering. (Bigger and Better Dept.: The Cure has just switched bassists and added a keyboard player.)

TRANSCRIPT

Art for Pop's Sake

Robert Smith of the Cure is not your ordinary front man. Get this: the band is on-stage at Hurrah, struggling to present its sober, rather demanding music to a restive crowd. One loudmouth keeps shouting incoherently as if he'd expected Bruce Springsteen. Most "stars" would respond with a boot to the obnoxious one's face, or at least a counterattack of verbal abuse. Not singer/guitarist Smith, a seemingly imperturbable chap. He leans forward, cocks his head, and politely asks the guy what he said! Highly irregular.

"He kept repeating this sentence I didn't understand," Smith recalls a few days later. "It was an Americanism. I got a bit irate, but he came back afterwards and said that he meant he thought we were good."

The offending remark?

"'Piss over Portobello Road,' or something." That's an Americanism?

Perched on twin beds in their New York hotel room, Smith and drummer Lol Tolhurst couldn't be more dissimilar. The soft-spoken Smith, dressed all in black, projects an air of cautious gravity unusual for a 20-year-old; he is, to borrow from Hard Day's Night, "very clean." In contrast, Tolhurst, 21, comes across like Joe Normal with his infectious smile and young-McCartney looks.

The Cure is one of those surprising British bands that rework rock into something intriguing and off-center. Where most groups pour out a torrent of sound, Smith and company deal in carefully-selected dabs that insinuate rather than overwhelm. Comparisons with Wire and Talking Heads are natural at first listen; on further inspection Smith's morosely urgent vocals and clever, restrained guitar indicate a band of daring originality. The Cure is not for every taste, but people who care for this sort of thing regard the band as something very special.

They don't generally appeal to rough and tumble crowds. Tolhurst describes their English audience as "mixed." There's no hard-core following. We don't have Cure clones." The band has been so low-key about extra-musical aspects that an American press release refers to them as "anti-image," a term that provokes pained looks from Smith and Tolhurst. "When we started out," the latter says, "people couldn't find a little hole to put us in. They said, 'You haven't got an image so we'll give you one: no image.' It's a bit pathetic, really. There was no conscious effort on our part to go out and pretend to be nothing."

"We don't want to look like rock 'n' rollers," Smith adds. "It's a bit jaded and stale." While he concedes there's "nothing new" in rejecting what he calls "the mythology of the rock 'n' roll star," he stresses that the role is "so accepted in the music business that before you realize it you're being sucked in. You have to make a conscious effort to stay clear."

What would the Cure substitute for the usual heroics? Smith doesn't feel anything is needed. "I wouldn't want to think people doted on us, hung on every word, or wanted to look like us. The whole new wave/punk thing started with the idea of stopping all that, with everyone forming their own fashions, music, ideas. Now it's gone full circle, with everybody saying, 'Let's do it like the Clash.' It's really stupid. I'm not saying that if a band wants to pose it's a bad thing as such, just that it's not really new.

"None of us are natural performers apart from maybe Simon [Gallup] the bass player. I'm not at ease on a stage - don't like talking into a microphone. I'm never tempted to do a twirling arm movement on the guitar because I'd miss! I've never practiced in front of a mirror."

In the Cure's short existence, Smith and Tolhurst have become astute observers of the trend-obsessed British pop scene. Smith cites Siouxsie and the Banshees and Public Image as bands he admires for doing things a bit differently; he theorizes that the current mod revival is due to record companies passing off the same bands they couldn't sell as "power pop." The Specials, he says, have become unwilling prisoners of a "grossly out of hand" 2 Tone craze, when all they sincerely wanted was to play ska. All this may make Smith sound a bit self-righteous or dour, but that's not really the case; he speculates lightly, with more amusement than disapproval.

Perhaps naively, Smith dismisses any likelihood of the same Pyrrhic success befalling the Cure. "How could people do that to us? There's nothing to market. We've all got different haircuts.

"As we build up a following touring around England, people don't come to expect a certain style of music. They're always anticipating the next record since they don't know what's on it. I would have hated it if "Boys Don't Cry" had become a big hit, because people would have expected more songs like it, which we're moving away from." At home the band stopped performing "Killing An Arab", their first single (inspired by Camus' The Stranger), because it was becoming a millstone.

Does Smith regret having done "Arab" now? "No, because the good that came from it far outweighed the bad. We came to public attention really quick on the strength of a single that wasn't a hit."

That pretty much epitomizes the easy time they've had of it so far. The Cure began in 1976 as a casual five-piece in Crawley, a small town 30 miles south of London; at first there was no greater aspiration than to play Bowie and Stones songs in the local pub. The original singer and a second guitarist eventually dropped out, leaving Smith, Tolhurst and bassist Michael Dempsey. A demo reached Chris Parry, starting Fiction Records at the time, and the label released "Killing An Arab" in early 1979. An LP (Three Imaginary Boys) followed; a revised version, adding the singles "Jumping Someone Else's Train" and "Boys Don't Cry" came out here recently as Boys Don't Cry. Along the way the band replaced Dempsey with Gallup and added keyboard player Matthieu Hartley. Smith sat in with the Banshees for some live gigs last fall but only because they'd lost their guitarist; his heart belongs to the Cure.

A lot of fine bands falter on their second album, but it's been a breakthrough for the Cure. Both Seventeen Seconds and its single, "A Forest", are enjoying chart action in England. Perhaps more important to Smith, who admits he wants complete control, is that he got to co-produce. "It was great," he says with a quiet smile. "Producing's easy." He characterizes the album's sound as "more moody, not as upfront" as the first. On Seventeen Seconds the band consistently understates without any loss of power, and displays a stunning mastery of texture. In less skilled hands such overtly serious music results in dull, dry art and unendurable preciousness; from the Cure it's simply exciting.

"People draw a line between experimental and acceptable music. I don't see why you can't combine the two," Smith says. The Cure is doing just that.

by Jon Young


TRANSCRIPT

The Cure: A Forest

It's zooming up the British charts, but this is no more than excellent background music (and has a rather slow start for a hit single, one would think). Both sides are colored by liquid guitar sounds, and utilize that snappy snare-slap so integral to Jumping Someone Else's Train. A Forest (from the new album) has a scanty vocal part, the non-LP flip none at all.

Four By Four

The love-hate dialect of The Affectionate Punch's title song will strike a chord among The Associate's ambivalent listeners. Their album can be too clever, and suffers a little from studio sterility, but it is an undeniably impressive debut. The band has filled out since recording - former Cure bassist Michael Dempsey, for one, has joined - and might loosen up as pressure is removed from Alan Rankine's stooped shoulders (he played everything but drums).

Interview with The Cure written by Jim Green. Happily Ever After album review by Alec Ross.


TRANSCRIPT

The Cure

The Cure is this kind of rock band that encourages a blurring of distinctions between journalism and criticism. They simply must be considered subjectively; dealing with them otherwise would be unfair and unproductive. Take it on faith.

Or, rather, Faith, the bands third album just released by A&M in tandem with the previous Seventeen Seconds as a two-record set called Happily Ever After - as misleading a title as the late Ian Curtis" band being called Joy Division. Much of the Cure's live set is deliberately, almost painfully slow. On-stage at the Ritz in New York, the band seemed to prolong the majestically lugubrious "Funeral Party" indefinitely; other numbers, like "The Drowning Man" add new dimension to the word "miasma." Dance music for autistics?

There you go. In a hot, humid ballroom in the wee hours of a hard day's night, at the reserved table of the record company whose people were either snoozing or had gone home, it was easy to make cracks about the music. Under more favorable circumstances the Cure's moody mantras could be hypnotic instead of soporific. How about "melancholy ear candy?"

The Cure's music has been labeled and pigeonholed since they started. At A&M's offices the next day, the band tells how even the record company is having trouble describing them for a press bio.

"They did say, 'It's not your regular boogie,'" drummer Laurence ("Lol") Tolhurst notes with a mixture of wryness and resignation. "You should have heard it before I started censoring it," counters guitarist/vocalist Robert Smith. "They said our sound couldn't be compared to anyone, and then further on say we're a 'cosmic Ventures' with overtones of psychedelia or something. Must be the West Coast office's version.

Smith's common name masks striking facial features. He resembles a less fantastic version of Marvel Comics' Sub-Mariner - without the pointy ears but with a shock of bristly black hair. He himself says he wouldn't bother trying to describe the band's music; the Cure's creative process is very much intuitive.

"We never theorize about what we do . There's no ulterior idea behind it. When we sit down and play something we know straight-away if it's not right. When we started-and it was literally a toss-up that I picked guitar - I tried to avoid musical cliché"s. I never wanted to be a guitarist per se and tried to impress on the others [originally Tolhurst and bassist Michael Dempsey, now in the Associates] not to 'be' their instruments, The Drummer and The Bassist. That's so limited." The song, rather than musical role models, would dictate the course of action.

The Cure's debut album, Three Imaginary Boys, (released here by PVC in slightly altered form as Boys Don't Cry), consists of a dozen brief songs, most with gloomy/dire/stark scenarios, a spare instrumental sound and catchy riffs. "Fire in Cairo," "Grinding Halt" and two subsequent singles (included on the US LP), "Boys Don't Cry" and "Jumping Someone Else's Train," suggested a growing affinity for pop hooks.

"But the Cure then has nothing to do with what we are now," Smith objects. "We were playing about 50 songs at the time, mostly in pubs and to people who didn't care if we fell over and died. I wrote most of them by myself without thinking they'd ever be heard by more than 30 people at a time. Chris Parry [head of Fiction, the Cure's English label] picked what he thought were the best of the 30 we recorded. They turned out to be some critics' ideas of 'classic pop,' but they obviously weren't because they weren't popular. "Jumping Someone Else's Train' was the last song of that period - and, yes, the last we did with Dempsey. We could've gone on doing songs like that but it would've been like, er, a Vapors trail' - everyone groans at the pun - 'and we had no intention of doing that."

Dempsey's departure spurred changes on many fronts. Besides current bassist Simon Gallup, Matthew Hartley (since departed was added on keyboards. The writing began to change, and with it the sound and aural shape of the Cure.

"Early on," Smith says, "the songs were credited to the group even if I had written them, so there wouldn't be any jealousy over my getting more money; I didn't want that to be a factor. Now the songs are group compositions. I couldn't just say "Here, we're gonna do this song, 'cause if everybody's unhappy with it they wouldn't play it. Though it's down to compromise, we all do tend to think along the same lines."

Tolhurst always had some lyrical input; now they're all involved, although Smith has last say on the words ("I have to sing them"). There's no set writing pattern.

Smith: "We played 'Charlotte Sometimes' [the latest Cure single] through for the first when we went into the studio to record it. The first take was perfect - although none of us told the others what to play at all. The B-side, though, 'Splintered in Her Head,' was pieced together: The drums were put down, then we sat and thought about what to put on top. Simon tried bass parts until bass and drums meshed, then I tried some guitar over that. So both sides were completely different processes. The only thing that runs through it all is that we are primarily concentrating on the atmosphere we want to create - and then, of course, Lol usually thinks of a title."

Seventeen Seconds had a richer texture than the first album. It was almost lush, even gentle in spots, not unlike ambient music - although it's eight main tracks (not counting a brief instrumental introduction on each side) are definitely songs. The album almost made the British Top 30 and the single it spawned, "A Forest," nearly snuck into the Top 20.

"That's a joke," Smith says. "When we did 'Jumping Someone Else's Train," Polydor, who distribute Fiction in England, said, 'This is it, a Top 10 single!" and it went nowhere. They also said they couldn't really hear 'A Forest' as a single, and it was a hit. Polydor doesn't understand us. One person likes us; the rest say, 'This is your year, boys'-and after we leave, 'Who was that band?' The critics didn't understand us either, but we don't pay much attention."

Reviewers' potshots escalated when Faith came out. The term "self-indulgent" got thrown around, but Smith says, "How do you define "self-indulgent"? Is ambient self-indulgent? Is Van Halen? My mother thinks Gregorian chants are.

"I have my own criticisms of the album. The production is really shit!" The band laughs, since they produced it with engineer Mike Hedges. More seriously, Smith continues, "We didn't allow ourselves enough time to develop the songs in the studio; then again if we'd taken longer that would've been self-indulgent. The last album took under 20 days, this one a bit more but even that was too much; we have self-imposed limits on how much time and money we should spend. It took so long because we kept getting thrown out of studios in favor of 'more important' people, and once we lost the mood we never quite got back the atmosphere we wanted. Also some of it could have been a little more cohesive.

"A lot of people are like us. Everybody I know has gone through the emotional trauma of Seventeen Seconds, which is learning you can't trust people as implicitly as you'd thought when you were younger. Faith is about having gone through that and trying to discover what you can have faith in, the loss of innocence and growing older, as in 'Primary,' and trying to sort out what your life"s about."[Sounds like jolly good entertainment.-Ed.]

The band isn't aware of what an atypically raucous reception they received from the packed Ritz crowd. The closing jam, based on "Three" from Seventeen Seconds, is made up "as we go, to relieve the tensions of the day," Smith says. "Once it lasted 45 minutes!"

Irregular boogie men? In the last analysis, one can only say it's all very Cure-ious. Bad punning aside, the Cure wouldn't have it any other way.

TRANSCRIPT

The Pop Life

British post-punk rock bands such as the Gang of Four and the Cure tend to take themselves very seriously. These bands are keen, critical observers of the racial and class conflicts and generational tensions that led last summer to widespread rioting, but they are not detached observers. They are involved, often passionately, in trying to make sense out of what they see going on around them, and the things they see are serious things.

The British punk bands of the mid-1970's offered a preview of the urban violence to come in songs such as the Sex Pistols' ''Anarchy in the U.K.'' and the Clash's ''White Riot.'' Their music was as angrily aggressive as their lyrics. The post-punk bands that came along toward the end of the 70's tended to be cooler. They retained punk's social consciousness, but they slowed the music down, substituting varied dynamics, a more heavily black-influenced rhythmic thrust, hypnotic drones and sudden jagged bursts of discord for punk's relentless thrashing. Some of the post-punk bands wrote lyrics that were overtly political, and some wrote more subjectively, mirroring the conflicts that raged around them in personal lyrics weighted with confusion, depression and despair.

The Gang of Four, who espouse a kind of pragmatic socialism, and the Cure, who are leading exponents of what some critics call the gloom-and-doom school of post-punk rock, both made their first recordings in the late 70's for British independent labels. They soon became two of the most popular post-punk bands in Britain, and now they have a loyal American audience and record for American major labels. Warner Bros. recently released ''Songs of the Free,'' the Gang of Four's third album, and A&M recently released the Cure's fourth album, ''Pornography.'' Lyricists With a Mission.

The Gang of Four's lyricist, Jon King, and the Cure's lyricist, Robert Smith, leave little doubt that they take themselves seriously. The Gang of Four begin a song called ''The History of the World'' with the lines ''When I was in my mother's womb/ Social structure seemed a simple thing.'' And the very first line on the new Cure album is ''It doesn't matter if we all die.'' In a song called ''I Will Be a Good Boy,'' the Gang of Four play a snappy dance rhythm and invite their listeners to ''dance to the tension of a world on the wane.'' The Cure's Robert Smith juxtaposes private tenderness and public brutality: ''Stroking your hair as the patriots are shot/ Cherish the faces as they wait for the end.''

These are bleak visions, but the Gang of Four and the Cure are not nihilists, and in the final analysis their albums are uplifting rather than depressing. For one thing, both bands have grown musically. The Gang of Four invented a terse, jangly, perpetually off-center style built around the stuttering guitar playing of Andy Gill, but by the time they got around to making their second album, this style had become a formula. On ''Songs of the Free'' they have radically altered their sound; they used to crash and stagger along, now they glide smoothly, hypnotically. The Cure's second and third albums were so funereal they were positively oppressive, but on ''Pornography'' the band has rediscovered the intensity and lyricism that made their first album, ''Boys Don't Cry,'' so compelling.

And while both these bands seem to think the disintegration of society and or nuclear holocaust may be right around the corner, they haven't given up hope. Every song on the Gang of Four's ''Songs of the Free'' encourages listeners to think for themselves, and to fight injustice and complacency. The Cure's ''Pornography'' is darker in mood - if Robert Smith's lyrics are autobiographical, he must suffer from frequent bouts of crushing depression. But the album ends on a note of determination. ''I must fight this sickness, find a cure,'' Mr. Smith sings, and he sings so passionately that one can't help believing that he will.

SCANS

The Cure: Pornography

The Cure - advocates of pop music as a malleable form - have razed the hard-and-fast rules, and in turn have raised the hackles of perplexed scribes trying to ascertain what they are "about." The band has chosen the path of greatest resistance, turning standard guitar/bass/drums/keyboard functions inside out and creating jarringly stark tone poems that proceed to make certain concessions.

Foremost among these is to accept the dissolution of traditional pop structures. Chord progressions, predictable instrumental and vocal interplay are tossed out the window; the Cure imposes an order that at first seems contrary to the basic preconceptions of rock "n" roll. For them, lyrics are everything. Instruments may set the scene, but they seldom stray from merely creating atmosphere.

Pornography continues this approach, but adds a few new wrinkles. Changes in dynamic levels and tempos are in contrast to previous efforts. Guitarist Robert Smith"s lyrics are bleak (when not harrowing), though there are some gradations in intensity. "Cold", with the ominous scraping of Simon Gallup"s bowed bass joined by grandiose minor-mode organ swells, gets the full gothic treatment. Lol Tolhurst"s drums band too loud and too long; they destroy the mood. Yet on the next track, the title tune, he eases up and flows with the logic of mixing muffled, treated voices with Smith"s impassioned wail decrying his sickening lust for carnage. In "The Hanging Garden" (nice double entendre) the Cure revs up but has nowhere to go, and the arrangement falls flat. Their customary excruciatingly slow pace would have worked much better.

They use the studio and their own pop instincts effectively to underscore some of the lyrics. "A Short Term Effect" stresses ephemeralness with Smith"s echo-laden voice decelerating at the end of each phrase. The song closest to basic pop, "A Strange Day," has overdubbed backing vocals plus a delineated verse and chorus wrapped in some strangely consonant guitar figures.

Pornography is a ponderous work, hammered somewhat by the turgid pop noir thematiciscm. It is also uncompromising and challenging, as Smith"s imagery exposes but doesn't explain his existential dilemmas. Collectively, the Cure say much by what they leave unsaid.
