    The Cure
    from "Ten Imaginary Years" Book:
    Suddenly, in April, The Cure were offered a spot on The Oxford Road Show. The programme's director wanted two songs - 'Let's Go To Bed' and 'Just One Kiss' but, out of sheer perversity and because he wanted people to realise The Cure did still exist, Robert elected to play '100 Years' and 'Figurehead'. All he needed was a band. Parry had a tape of Brilliant and was impressed with the drummer, Andy Anderson, who'd played with Hawkwind among others; he was drafted in along with Derek Thompson of SPK.
    Robert: "It was a real pleasure. I was singing live again for the first time since Simon had left and I realised, then, how much I was missing it."
    Parry: "Whilst watching the replay of the Oxford Road Show with the group, Peter Powell and the BBC Staff, I was filled with an immense joy as at that moment I knew my struggle with Fiction, The Cure, was not to end so lamely."
    from "The Cure - A Visual Documentary" Book:
    April 1983
    The Cure are offered a headlining role on BBC TV's Oxford Road Show. It is suggested they perform 'Let's Go To Bed' and 'Just One Kiss'; Robert decides 'Figurehead' and '100 Years' would be better. With Andy Anderson, drummer with Brilliant, and SPK pianist Derek Thompson, Robert and Lol put in a performance which finally wipes away any doubts they may have had regarding the future of The Cure.
    "It was fun because we actually played live. Also, it was great being on the same programme as Kajagoogoo."
    Almost immediately, work begins on a new single, 'The Walk'.
