CURE

 

Today our Bottle Rock Napa Featured Band is The Cure. Yes, it is Friday and I’m in Love and so I had to feature The Cure today. The Cure are a band that really needs no explanation, introduction or description; they are THE CURE!!!  We all know them and many, many, many of us love them. I have been a true diehard fan of The Cure since maybe 1980 when I first heard, Boy’s Don’t Cry. I was listening to a lot of the classic 70’s style rock since I had two older brothers and a lot of R&B and Disco since I also had three older sisters. With the introduction of The Cure into my world, it became My Music, music for my generation. My older sisters and brothers definitely did not get it nor did they like it. That is also what drew me even more to listening to The Cure, my rebellious nature at 13 or 14 was kicking into high gear and The Cure soon became another soundtrack to a period in my life.

Over the past thirty years, I still listen to them at least a couple times a week. I have cassettes stashed in drawers and several copies of each CD. I remember not finding my favorites so I would go out and buy it all over again. I needed my fix of the Cure and I needed to have it on my own CD or Vinyl so I could crank it up loud since for me, that is the only way for me to listen to them. So when I saw they were coming to perform at Bottle Rock Napa Festival this year, the little 13 year old in me belted out the loudest scream. What is even more remarkable is that The Cure have been consistently putting out great music for the past 30+ years and there is no slowing down for them. That signature voice of Robert Smith will grab your attention every time and you can’t resist it, It is addictive!

The Cure has been described as everything from Gothic Rock, Post-Punk, Alternative, and many more but as Robert Smith once said, “It’s so pitiful when ‘goth’ is still tagged onto the name The Cure. We’re not categorisable. I suppose we were post-punk when we came out, but in total it’s impossible […] I just play Cure music, whatever that is.” Yes, well said Robert and we can’t wait to hear more Cure music. Here is our quick band feature:
