...but not as you know them. The Cure released their first album 'three imaginary boys' as a threesome (Smith, Dempsey, and Tolhurst) in 1979. The sound, though more stripped down, isn't too far removed from their later goth stuff (but dig the nice clean, fat, bass), and as you can see from the video below, they looked totally different. Robert Smith has straight hair??? Who knew? Poor guy must have spent his life teasing it. Anyway, this is the first track off the record, recently re-released on delicious 180g vinyl.
