9/1/1979  Music Week (8-24-79 Reading Festival, England Show Review)
Reading Festival 79

Next on were the Polydor band The Cure, the first Reading band to really bear the hallmark of polish and professionalism. They started off coyly, but their confidence grew with every song and soon the links between numbers developed from "Ta, and the next one’s called..." to an aggressive humorous patter which even included jokes at the expense of anti-hero Gemmy. The band played most of the songs from their current album, Three Imaginary Boys but explained that this would probably be the last occasion they did so which can only augur well if that means new songs in the pipeline.

The Cure showed all the signs that they’re going to be big. Watch out for them headlining at Reading next year!

- Danny Van Emden
