The way of CURVE


Curve - essentially the duo of Toni Halliday and Dean Garcia - were one of my favorite bands of the 1990s. So many bands tried, and almost all failed, to merge a dark, cacophonous sound with pseudo-industrial rhythms with Ice Queen vocals. Curve not only succeeded but during the 5 years between their 2nd and 3rd albums, they saw Garbage hit mainstream hitdom with a very similar, though poppier and less edgy, sound.

Their discography gave me fits back in the day - oh, those Brits and their love of multi-release CD singles and the myriad of promotional-only material that I would sit on the back floors of record shops hunting for. I'm sure I missed a few, but I found a good lot...
