The Cure – Disintegration

This is record number 1 in my collection which is now around 2000. A friend’s big sister no longer played her records so handed them on to him and he gave this gem to me. I loved everything about it and from that moment I was hooked. I’ve since spent hours and thousands of dollars in record shops around the world.
When The Cure toured on the Bloodflowers tour I skived off of uni and spent the day hanging about the front of hotels all across Adelaide until finally I got the chance to meet Robert Smith and Simon Gallop. I had a chat with them and got my record signed. So not only is it my oldest but my most precious. On Catastrophic Fire days here in the Adelaide Hills I make sure I have my 3 kids and this record in the car before we flee!
