A couple weeks after playing three songs off The Cure’s Seventeen Seconds for a charity webcast Robert Smith was at it again this week, this time performing a trio of songs off that album’s follow-up, Faith, for a different fundraising broadcast.
Once again barefoot in his studio, Smith performed solo versions of “The Holy Hour,” “The Funeral Party” and “The Drowning Man” on solo guitar and keyboard for the Dec. 22-23 24 Hour Improv 2020 event, which raised money for Poverty Alleviation Charities. (You can still donate money here.)
