Three Imaginary Boys, CURE's debut album, was released the day before this recording. The Peel session was first aired on 16 May.
The last song, "Desperate Journalist in Ongoing Meaningful Review Situation", a brilliant response to Paul Morley's Three Imaginary Boys review in the NME.
Willowly songs wallow in the murk and marsh of tawdry images, inane realisations, dull epigrams. Sometimes they sound like an avant-garde John Otway, or an ugly Spirit.NME, 12 May 1979
