THE CURE With ‘PICTURES OF YOU’ – This Day In 1990

Pictures Of You is an epic standout single by goth
icons THE CURE from their 1989 album Disintegration.

It was released 33 years ago, on 19 March 1990, ago as
the 4th single of that mega successful LP, their eight LP.
The inspiration for this classic came when a fire broke loose
in Robert Smith‘s home. After that day, Smith was going
through the remains and came across his wallet which
had pictures of his wife, Mary.

The cover of the single is one of the pictures.

Here’s the original clip…

Classic Clips – BABES IN TOYLAND With BRUISE VIOLET (1992)

For your eyes

13 March 2023

Minneapolis‘ riot grunge grrrls BABES IN TOYLAND (1987–2001, 2014–2020) were punk pussyKats you’d better not mess around with. Their barbed wire in-your-face bravado could split atoms and Kat Bjelland‘s intimidating vox was clamorously ace.

Remember their stupendous single BRUISE VIOLVET and its utterly cool
babes-rock video clip from their amazeballs 1992 album Fontanelle?

Roll the tape.

Liverpool’s heroes ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN wrote/recorded
one of the best ballads ever in music history with magical gem
OCEAN RAIN, the title track of their 1984 magnum opus.

The live rendition of this diamond on British legendary music TV Show

big mouth Ian McCulloch doing what he did/does all his life. Singing cool,
performing cool and looking cool.

Roll the tape.
