QuoteThe band and Robert in particular struggled with that post punk ethic that you shouldn't really be that good a player, there should be no displays of virtuosity or musicianship but the band had progressed to such a stage that these elements were now to a degree necessary. I came from a totally different musical background where excess and musicianship were required but I learnt a lot of very valuable lessons from Robert that ring true in my music even today.
QuoteFOH engineer Paul Corkett, who's respectively engineered and co-produced two Cure albums with bandleader Robert Smith, explained, "Robert puts a lot of time and attention into rehearsals, listens to everything and he's very hands-on and articulate about what he wants, so I think he wanted to carry one consistent rig with him." ...he has one singular goal, handed down by Smith: "His guide to me was make it sound exciting. He listens to everything, so I certainly know if I've gone wrong."
