Anyway, maybe old news for you, but rediscovered it today and wanted to share.

Never was much for The Cure, but...
They had a few good tracks early on (which I discovered by accident long after the black hair, blacker eye makeup phase my sister and her friends went through in the 80s that caused me to hate this band). I really dig this track, mislabeled here as "Grinding Halt." This is actually a version of that one, titled "Desperate Journalist" which they recorded for a John Peel sesh in 79, following a shitty review of their debut LP. Love the scathing sarcasm, taking the journalist's words and spitting 'em back at him.
