For years I was searching for a song that a local radio station played in the background of their station ID every morning when they signed on. I was convinced the song was by The Cure and searched for years and years trying to find it. Finally about six months ago a friend tracked down the song and it wasn’t The Cure at all, it was actually another late ’80s band called The Essence who sound exactly like “Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me” era Cure. Today’s track “The Afterworld” is the track that eluded me for over 15 years.
