Curve – Pubic Fruit

Ten Little Girls was playing on the John Peel show even before the release of the Blindfold EP. John raved about Curve and said that they were going to be the next big thing. I thought that they were good and ordered the EP from Our Price.  In those days you had to wait for things to be sent to the record shop usually by a distributor like Cargo or Reactor. Unless you had a really good Independent Record Shop near.

Dave Stewart was the unlikely orchestrator of the formation of Curve. Toni Halliday was signed to Stewart’s Anxious label and Dave Garcia had played bass guitar in the live Eurythmics tour band.  Curvesfirst 3 EPs were released in a compilation (I know very Ride, Lush and Beta Band), the classic Pubic Fruit. This I would rate as some of their best releases. Doppelgänger was a bit of a let down. I think that was due to the fact that I had collected every EP and there was not much new good material on the album.

No Escape from Heaven is the standout track with Frozen and Die like a Dog coning a close second.  Sounding darker and more dangerous than American-Scottish alternative rock band Garbage that stole their thunder.  Swirling guitars buried beneath a throbbing rhythm with sexy expressive vocals.
