By russell clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
From the age of 17( I'm now 41) up until it's quality demise after Allan Jones left as Editor to start up "Uncut" the highlight of my week was on every Wednesday getting the "Melody Maker" and then perusing all the latest releases and seeing what was new. Only once in all that time did a release cause so much excitement that it was reviewed a full month before it was actually available in the shops. That was "The Blindfold E.P." by Curve, which got The Stud Brothers in a right lather and me so tingling with anticipation that I pre-ordered it and bought it on the day of release in March 1991. It says everything about the coruscating brilliance of Curve that I wasn't disappointed. In fact "Ten Little Girls" was, and is so unremittingly fantastic, that it actually exceeded my expectations. Heady days.
This C.D. contains that epochal first E.P. plus their next two "The Frozen E.P." and "The Cherry E.P"plus an extended version of "Fait Accompli". Of the three the first is still the best, but stylistically very little changes throughout the course of these three releases. Layers of scalding guitar courtesy of Dean Garcia flame throw the horizon with the odd rogue note sparking off at a tangent. Thunderous bass lines patrol the layers supplemented by dense but precise percussion. Meanwhile Garcia,s song writing partner Toni Hallidays wonderfully cool vocals provide a delicious counterpoint to the instrumentation like she's above all this and can just about be arsed to bother with this singing lark. The fusion of rapper JC100 into "Ten Little Girls" is inspired. It shouldn't work but it does, adding an aura of oblique tension to the song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Curve ep's 1991-1992. 1 Feb 2003
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD
This collection takes in Curve's initial ep's: Blindfold, Frozen & Cherry from 1991 & has a bonus extended take of 92's single Fait Accompli.
Blindfold was mindblowing stuff, described by Julian Cope in a music weekly as sounding like "an indie Kate Bush" it was deep dark sexy stuff pre-empting the tepid Garbage by several years. Opening track Ten Little Girls fused Dean Garcia's soundscapes with Toni Halliday's sexy/sinister vocals- what makes this track is the rap by JC001 in fusion with Halliday's lead & backing vocals. This really is the sound of fusion, elements of dance-indie-goth-shoegazing-rap can all be located. This is what was so interesting about the early 90's- other examples of similar openminded experimentation can be found on records like Glider, Weekender, Higher Than the Sun, Telephone Thing ,Fool's Gold 953, Q-Mart,Perfume etc...The rest of the ep is as great- I Speak Your Every Word drifting between Halliday's lead & backing vocals, fusing with the noises (though sadly the JC001 version from the Cherry 10" is not to be found here)...Blindfold opens as more of a trance-dance track, an industrial type beat comes in alongside a Cure/Magazine style guitar. But it's final track No Escape from Heaven that is best (it was a highlight of their set supporting The Boo Radleys in 1991 at London ULU for me)- a great pop song fused with sonic experimentation: "Hold my hand in summertime". Amusing that Madonna's Ray of Light album is not that far away from this (see Candy Perfume Girl). The final refrains of "Hold Me/Hold me like you used to" sounds great against alien whirring noises not unrelated to AFX Twin's Didgeridoo. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power indie at its very best 20 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Curve's first three EP's were a fantastic trilogy of dark, turbo-driven power indie not equalled since. Bear in mind that Curve's peers included the likes of Transvision Vamp, the Primitives and arguably the Sisters of Mercy, these records were a massive breath of fresh air.
I was an indie DJ in Birmingham when these EP's were released, and I can still clearly remember the night when I first gave "Coast Is Clear" a full play on the massive club PA - spine tingling stuff.
The band that Garbage perhaps could have been....
