We’re delighted to invite Andi Harriman (The Postpunk Project: Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace / SYNTHICIDE) to present our album of the month: The Cure’s Disintegration.
Classic Album Sundays New York City, the communal active listening sessions founded by Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, revisits this all-time classic. We invite you to take a seat in front of the hifi, listen and learn with your hosts, Paul Raffaele & Barbie Bertisch, founders of Love Injection Fanzine. Join us monthly on a Sunday to unpack some of the most iconic LPs in existence.
