Distant but Sweet and Curious Memories,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Keep Your Distance (Audio CD)
Curiosity made their American debut at The Roxy in Los Angeles in the late 80s. I was fortunate to be in the audience. Ben is a very soulful singer. The band definitely had that pretty boy factor but with songs like "Misfit", "Ordinary Day", "Down to Earth" and "Red Lights" they were clearly good pop songwriters.
Having pop culture guru, Andy Warhol, make a cameo appearance in their "Misfit" video gave them enough gravitas to be recognized in the states.
They went on to do respectable covers of the soul hits by Teena Marie "I Need Your Lovin'" and Johnny Bristol's "Hang on in There Baby" on subsequent albums.
Their debut topped the U.K. charts and would be the pinnacle of their career.
