The Cure & Tim Pope, “the Caterpillar” video shoot for the Old Grey Whistle Test (video, 8 minutes)

the-cure-the-caterpillar-fiction-2Another interesting tidbit from Tim Pope’s website, this time a feature on the video shoot for The Cure’s “Caterpillar” single recorded for the Old Grey Whistle Test (8 minutes).

I asked everyone I was working with to be in it. Nobody knew I was going to sing. The week after its TX I got offered six record deals and I re-recorded the song with The Cure. Love the modesty about being more important than my bands and also my antiquated Walkman that I am holding. It was yellow. I still have bruises from Siouxsie Sioux attacking me with her umbrella.

I cannot embed the video here, but you can watch it here:
