Permanent Record Podcast

Brian and Sarah are your hosts for this look back at albums from the New Wave and Classic Rock genres-- albums which have earned a permanent spot in their record collection. The hosts start the discussion with a history of the album, followed by their personal history with it. Over the course of two episodes, they do a track-by-track review of the album and the videos that accompany the singles. They conclude by each giving the album a final review and rating of zero to five record adapters. Join Brian and Sarah in this fun look back at the hits-- along with some misses-- of the 70s and 80s!

Episode 86: Movie Review: “The Cure - Anniversary 1978-2018 Live in Hyde Park London” (2019)

It’s been quite some time since Brian and Sarah published an “emergency episode” of the Permanent Record Podcast, but they both decided recent circumstances called for one. Our hosts attended a special screening of the Tim Pope film “The Cure Anniversary 1978-2018 Live in Hyde Park London” on July 11, and since they a) enjoyed the film immensely and b) are still on a “Cure High” after spending the month of May talking about the iconic album “Disintegration,” they decided to devote an episode to talking about the movie they just watched.

It should come as no surprise that both Brian and Sarah very much enjoyed Tim Pope’s cinematic treatment of The Cure’s 2018 concert in London's Hyde Park, which took place almost exactly 40 years to the day from the first live performance by The Cure, at The Rocket in Crawley, England. Brian sets forth a plan for the two of them to break the 29-song setlist into groups of five songs each, with each host focusing on a particular song of each five-song group. However, as the discussion progresses, they both find themselves unable to limit their commentary that strictly, and they pretty much end up talking about almost every song.
