    1. Yeah! I noticed that singing along also. It caught my attention cause they never do that. Most of the time they are so caught up in their own parts.

    1. No shit. You would think Metz was filmed by Simon's brother too. Great sound at least.

  10. It's worth nothing these videos are taken from the first-ever performances by The Cure in New York City ever, on their first tour of the states on a two-week tour in April 1980.
