Three Imaginary Boys. Released: 08 May 1979. Producer: Chris Parry. Recorded At: Morgan Studios, London, UK. Original. I wrote "10:15 Saturday Night" and "Killing an Arab" when I was about sixteen, and we recorded the album when I was eighteen, so I wasn't really still convinced by some of the songs.

Three Imaginary Boys' is really quite a unique album in the greater scheme of The Cure's discography. It is very much a post-punk album, with relatively short and punchy songs that when compared to their later works provide quite a contrast in the bands. The album starts with a series of energetic and memorable songs that were written and performed really well starting with an early Cure highlight "10:15 Saturday.
The Cure's debut album, Three Imaginary Boys (1979), reached number forty-four on the UK Albums Chart. The next two albums, Seventeen Seconds (1980) and Faith (1981), were top 20 hits in the UK, reaching number twenty and number fourteen respectively
Three Imaginary Boys was basically a compilation of the best songs that the Cure had accumulated up to that point. It was good - no album with 1. 5 Saturday Night, Another Day Grinding Halt Fire in Cairo or Three Imaginary Boys should be considered bad. I’m also quite fond of Accuracy, Object and Subway Song - great little two minute numbers that manage to say so much so quickly. But the Foxy Lady Meathook So What trio that opens side two are jus. ell, they just sound like a band that isn’t quite there yet. I’m sure they’d be passable enough live, but on record they are. It’s good; it has great songs; but it’s not a great album.
