We Dig Music – Series 2 Episode 3 – Vic Chesnutt & The Cure

Play episode

Our alphabetical musical adventures travel from the edge of the deep green sea to arrive at the letter C, which means we’re talking about legendary cult American singer songwriter(and friend of Michael Stipe, Shirley Manson and Kristin Hersh) Vic Chessnutt and Crawley’s (no, the universe’s) finest stadium goth titans and official greatest band in the world ever, The Cure (Colin in particular is VERY excitable in this episode…). As usual we never stay on topic for long so you’ll also hear us prattling on about Lawrence Of Arabia’s protogoth career, Shirley Manson’s careless drunken wheelchair pushing, forcible cat ownership and massive terminology failure…
