Grillust Goes Goth (for the Day)

It's Halloween today and we couldn't think of a more suitable way to celebrate it than in the company of that 'godfather of goth' Mr. Robert Smith (from off of/out of The Cure).

'Laughing' Bob treated the assembled throng to ukulele versions of his greatest hits including:
The Lovecats; A Forest and In Between Days.

Impressed proto-Goth Josh Ford (21, pictured above left), who lives underneath Blackpool Tower, was ecstatic. "The last time I was this happy was when I went to see The Fields of the Nephilim at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom in 1991 when I was only one year old" he gushed excitedly

Yvonne Kennedy (also 21, pictured above right) who lives underneath the Bullring, Birmingham, was even more effusive in her praise. "To be here today listening to Robert sing Boys Don't Cry has got to be right up there with the time that I went to see Wayne Hussey (former Sisters of Mercy member and Mission front man) playing the evil stepmother in the 1998 production of Cinderella at The Birmingham Hippodrome".

Robert was invited to the studio on this special day by his good friend Kraig Mitchell (21) of Year 1 Illustration.
