Lol has a point here. The Cure were at the beginning of their career back in '79... The "darker" albums weren't even written yet. I can hear a Joy Division influence on "Faith" (while it still sounds like The Cure). So if Peter Hook were talking about 1983 or so, I might be able to understand his point of view (but then again, Hook was in New Order at this time, they were enjoying "pop success" too with Blue Monday)... I don't know, somehow I get the impression he's lost the plot.  :?
but memory's not life... and it's not love.

New Order always has hated the Cure since they "stole" their songs. Immature
