On this day in music history: May 3, 1982 - “Pornography”, the fourth studio album by The Cure is released. Produced by Phil Thornalley and The Cure, it is recorded at RAK Studio One in London from January - February 1982. Part three in a trilogy of albums that includes “Seventeen Seconds” and “Faith”, it will be a career defining release for the band, and a high water mark for the goth music genre and subculture. Much of the material will be written and recorded while The Cure is in a state of flux, though it will become their most successful album to date in the UK and broaden their cult following in the US. “Pornography” will peak at #8 on the UK album chart.
