The Cure: Curiouser & Curiouser

William Shaw, Blitz, September 1985

In the six and a half years since the release of their first single, 'Killing An Arab', The Cure have released seven albums, with another, The Head On The Door, on the way. In that time, Robert Smith has managed to be a part-time Banshee and half of The Glove. He's also eaten rather a lot.
