THIS IS OUR MUSIC: The Cure – Easy Cure 1st Demo 1977-1978.
Here is the 1st demo of the Cure, or as they were then known – the Easy Cure.
Some studio demos recorded by the Easy Cure at Sound and Vision Studios in London for Hansa International: Beginning with the pervy but extraordinary “See the Children,” and then continuing with “Meathook,” “I Want to be Old” “Listen,” and “I Just Need Myself, :all of their signature sounds were already in place by this point. Even if this does sound “formative” (that’s exactly what it was) it’s still pretty amazing and the sound quality is very good. Hansa execs, who’d apparently awarded them the contract thinking they’d be a malleable teen act, hated their planned single “Killing an Arab” (based on Albert Camus’ existentialist novel The Stranger) and they were soon dropped from their contract.
