Friday Video #64: The Cure

I've been playing quite a bit of classic post-punk recently, so I'll be posting some in the next couple of Friday Videos. Here is the Cure performing "Grinding Halt" at the Underground in Boston, Mass. back in 1980. Very edgy and energetic. It's several years away from Robert Smith becoming a sort-of teeny-bop idol. "Grinding Halt" is from the band's 1979 album Three Imaginary Boys. (It would be released in America as Boys Don't Cry, with a slightly different song listing.)

Wow! I was just listening to that yesterday along with the early Depeche Mode singles! Ihave the remastered expanded edition of TIB. I had the original vinyl import but lord knows what happened to that.
