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.

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