Bursting onto the scene in the late 1970's in the wake of the UK 'punk' revolution, The Cure's dark, powerful art-rock soon won a legion of devoted fans. Fronted by the extraordinary Robert Smith, the band released a string of ground breaking albums; including Three Imaginary Boys, Faith, Pornography and Disintegration and enjoyed a healthy number of hit singles. Respected musicians and Cure fans bring new perspectives to the music of the band; they explain in a clear, concise way just what it is that sets them apart; what qualities in the songs make them sound as fresh today as when they were first released. The program also features a rare archive interview with Robert Smith himself, who brings his personal memories and insights to the making of the Pornography and Disintegration albums. In addition to this highlight, also featured is superb archive footage of the band performing on the cult 1980's British music show 'The Tube'. All this is combined with analysis of rare Cure tracks and performances by the cream of today's rock journalists.
