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 80: The Cure - RnR HOF 2019 & "Disintegration" (1989) Part 1

Hi folks! Brian here. Sarah didn't write her usual well-organized and amusing show notes for this episode yet, but I am ready to post it. And while on the episode I will mention that I am suffering from some seasonal allergies, it turns out that what I really have is a super-annoying cold with sore throat, cough, and congestion. This cold has me feeling much less than witty!

Because of that, these show notes are really sub-standard. 

Here is what you will find on this particular episode of the podcast:

1. A discussion of The Cure's induction into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame.

2. A good number of details about the recording of the 1989 album "Disintegration."

3. A look back at some of the reviews of the aforementioned record from various publications.

4. Brian and Sarah's sad/sexy personal histories with this record.

While we don't talk about any particular songs in this installment, I added a few early demos in the background to help get you in the mood and to give you something to listen to other than my stuffy, sick voice.

We hope everyone is well and check back next episode for more of Sarah's excellent show notes!!
