The Cure, live in 1984 assorted videos: Oxford Road Show, The Tube, live from Glasgow Barrowlands, live from Munchen

smithI think 1984 was a really interesting year for the Cure, and it saw the release of two LP’s – “the Top” and “Concert – the Cure Live”.

The Top (an excellent LP) was really a Robert Smith solo LP, Simon Gallup had left the band after Pornography in 1982, and the Cure’s line-up had been very fluid ever since (see this interesting live appearance in 1983 with a totally different line-up again).

Robert Smith was busy… even though the Cure had semi-imploded, he was playing with and touring with the Banshees, plus being part of the Glove (with Steve Severin).

1984 saw the Cure line-up tour as follows, and these are the performers on the live LP:

  • Robert Smith- vocals, guitar
  • Porl Thompson – guitar, saxophone, keyboards
  • Andy Anderson – drums
  • Phil Thornalley – bass guitar
  • Lol Tolhurst – keyboards
