At one point I think I tried to sell Pearl on the emulator, but it was early and never quite sounded like the Solina they came out with later on. Even with a decent patch for that with the emulator, it never sounded quite the same. To a certain extent, you have to be prepared to experiment in the studio. And as a musician, you want to be unique. I mean, who would have thought that like the Byrds and French New Wave would have sounded as good as it did with the Smiths.
To us, it was always about trying to go back and discovering our roots when we first started playing when we were kids. We would go along to pubs and stuff in London where they had these blues sessions, and occasionally they would let us sit in, because we were kids you know and that was the stuff that we grew up listening to. By the time we were making Kiss Me, we were actually at that point where we had the facilities to be able to experiment a lot.
It always worked well to isolate ourselves from everybody a bit. I had a long conversation with him, and I remember he was a really funny guy. I think that was more of his style, you know. Robert was cool with it, especially, because he liked the band. When we first came to the States we ended up playing with Mission of Burma. They were great and they were kind of like an American version of us in the way they felt about stuff and we connected with the idea of who they were rather than the sound.
One of the most interesting parts of your memoir Cured happens during the Kiss Me era when the band played Argentina. That feeling when you still want someone but you're fighting it. Desperatly saying "Kiss me kiss me kiss me. And then also desperately going against it "Get it out get it out get your fucking voice out of my head. I never wanted this [suffering, pain, rejection? I love this song so much. I'm currently trying to get over someone and this song soothes me.
General Comment desperately trying to expell intense feelings that you dont want to have for someone Absolutely agree with your interpretation. Amazing song General Comment the sickness of lust. General Comment This song describes a situation many of us have found ourselves in- getting caught up in a relationship with someone you have no actual attraction to, and the repulsion you feel at being forced to kiss someone who disgusts rather than arouses you.
The forcefulness of the other person's grasp is really well displayed here. In order to get people to dress like you-- to make a whole world out of your music-- you have to offer them a whole world, one that encompasses all of their moods, every waking moment of their days. The 18 tracks of Kiss Me 's double-LP do exactly that. Every major mode of the Cure is here, and sounding better than ever, each one a realm of its own.
There's grand, tormented wailing "The Kiss", "Fight" next to tender, sunny numbers "Catch". Smith's lyrics even find, among the usual animals and anguish, a set of linchpin images that reflect in each of those directions.
There is a mouth on the cover, and the songs are full of devouring-- both the devouring mouths of desire and the fear of being consumed. Christmas gets to evoke both gaudy colors and sad nostalgia. There's the deep, dark water that would soon be all over Disintegration , and there's an endless romantic push and pull: someone so perfect that Smith asks "Why can't I be you?
Bitter torture and giddy excitement and desire, desire, desire: They all come together into one almost maniacally impassioned thing.
