Robert on The Weedy Burton

From a BBC article on the death of guitarist Bert Weedon:
"The Cure, meanwhile, wrote a short instrumental called The Weedy Burtons, which featured as a hidden track on their debut album Three Imaginary Boys in 1979.
"I'd taught myself to play a bit by reading Bert Weedon's Play In A Day books using my older brother's guitar," said Robert Smith. "It's a sort of tongue in cheek tribute to Bert."

  1. Robert made a comment about how "for some reason they added this song to the end of 3IB."

    I always really liked this track! It's just fun and has a funny title.

  2. Hello dear Craig,
    I'm Vladislav from Sofia, Bulgaria. I'm a slo-mo deep disco Dj and in the same time a very big Cure fan! The Cure was and still very important part of my live and hope to see them one day live in Bulgaria. Yesterday I got back to my old vinyls of the band and I decided to make a mix exclusively with their music for RS birthday. Only my favorite pieces - slow, deep, about love, fast, hysterical, depressive... The ones because of which I have always loved this band.
    The mix is called Happy birthday, Mr. Robert Smith (vinyl only mixtape) and you can listen/download from here
    If you think that it will be interested for the other fans you can put it on your blog.
    All the best,
