Jonathan Bree: I might not listen to it much anymore but this album and all of Jonathan Richman’s work has played a massive part in my musical upbringing. ‘I’m straight’ was probably the track that connected which me in my later teens when I actually was no longer the hippie Johnny character and was going through similar frustrations.
Jonathan Bree:** When it came out I was still a child drumming in a goth band. I remember the singer of my band turning to me as she listened to her freshly purchased copy and saying »this is historical, you’ll remember this day«. As funny a statement as it is, I do remember it, and though there are other albums of The Cure I probably listen to more, it’s still their finest moment. For the last two years we’d put this album on the front of house sound system before walking out on stage to perform. I also had a go at covering »Lovesong« with my old band.
