Some interesting versions. 'Desperate Journalist' is 'Grinding halt' with improvised lyrics, against a stupid review on their music.
It is a part of the first known recording of an early live show. Very good atmosphere and great live versions of old songs.
Unmentioned on the cover, track 3 also has 'Foxy Lady' after 'Object'. I have cut these tracks and called them 3A and 3B.

Side 2 is part of one of the 3 shows The Cure did in 1983.
After the split up in 1982, they took a break for almost a year.
Robert Smith started it up again with Laurence Tolhurst and Phil Tornally and Andy Anderson were added for live performances.

This recording is untouched, no clean-ups, no noise reduction, no cuts in pauzes between songs on the record, I wanted to keep close to the sensation of 'playing a record'. -INC (Original)
