Personal note:

A great 1981 Cure show. The atmosphere is much more darker than the year before.
Even the older songs sound more depressing. ‘Drowning Man’ and ‘Faith’ are intense.
‘The Holy Hour’ only has the last 24 seconds, the rest of the show is complete.

This was the tour in the Circus tent. They had no support-act, but played the track
‘Carnage Visors’ with an animation film made by Ric Gallup, Simon’s brother.
The soundtrack was only released as the B-side of the cassette release of ‘Faith’.
In 2005 it was included on the bonus-cd with the Deluxe Edition of ‘Faith’.


I have included 8 tracks from this show broadcasted on the Dutch radio station KRO.
Almost perfect quality!
