Michael’s brother Mark returns to the podcast along with third brother Matt to talk about one of their favorite ’80s bands. Starting with The Cure’s debut Three Imaginary Boys album and covering up through 1985’s The Head on the Door, the brothers talk about their own experiences with the band, favorite and not-so-favorites songs, the group’s evolving sound, and the three “genres” of music that the group tends to make. It’s a different sort of episode for AfterLunch, but whether you’re already a Cure fan or merely Cure-ious, we hope you’ll enjoy this detailed look back at the early days of Robert Smith and Company.
