Another of my top three Cure songs – Wrong Number from 1997.   Wrong Number is taken from the “Singles” album – Galore. [“A sickly kind of orange” by Philip Harris first appeared on Solitary Mindset on 14th January 2015]

Back to musical Wednesdays with some shaky-cam footage of the final song from The Cure gig we attended in London last year – Hey You.   I was particularly happy at this point, because Hey You is one of my top three favourite Cure songs and this three-night series of shows was the first time it’s been played live since 2004. It comes from my favourite Cure album – Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me. [“Come over here and kiss me” by Philip Harris first appeared on Solitary Mindset on 7th January 2015]

I also made a couple of trips to my favourite comic shop – Comic Connections – to catch up with some friends (and reacquaint myself with Strongbow), and spent a bit of time wandering around the town.

We also ate some fantastic food. I can highly recommend The Three Pigeons. We had a Christmas lunch there and the food was delicious. The Three Pigeons was my “local” when I was younger, and my wife and I spent many an evening there when we first met so going back was a bit of a trip down memory lane.

In celebration of the fact that my wife and I managed to snag tickets to the sold-out-almost-immediately gig The Cure are playing at Christmas…   The Lovecats also happens to be the first song we played at our wedding. Ahhhhhhh. [“The way we stalk” by Philip Harris first appeared on Solitary Mindset on 12th November 2014]
