Music and fashion (8): The Cure

The Cure played last night at the BBK Live Festival in Bilbao, Spain. They went, played and conquered that small piece of land called Kobetamendi, with more than 35,000 people dancing at the sound of their tunes.
From Easy Cure to just The Cure, it's been more than 30 years since they released their first album.
Those were the days of post-punk and new wave. But they moved away from the regular sound and aesthetics to achieve something darker and more oppressive.
And the style reflected the evolution of the band and its sound: it was eccentric and experimental like the use of Joker-like make-up and hair. Music full of emotions, ups and downs without becoming dull.
Playful and daring. Joyful and intense.
And all with a distinctive image that caused a revolution and now makes us, mortals, put some rough make-up on to go and listen to them.
Provocative and unexpected.
Some of of the best rock, pop or whatever music label you want to use for this magic band.
It's Friday.
And still, I'm in love.
