Rediscovering Old Music...

I've rediscovered The Cure. No, not the fat, bloated Jo Brand lookalike that Mr Smith is now, but their earlier stuff. They were my favourite band when I was growing up, and were just so damn good. It's always a bit strange going back to your old bands, seeing if they still move you in the same way, and damn, they do...

I bought 'The Top' recently off Ebay and today it arrived. What a great album, it was my favourite album for a long time... Their 'heroin' phase really was their best phase. But sadly, heroin is all well and good, but it's a bit moreish, and eventually they managed to stop. And although I'm sure as people they are happier, their music has never been the same since. I wonder what the link is between heroin and great music? Perhaps we should try giving some to the contestants on X Factor. I'm sure it would help. It would make great telly. I'd watch it.
