Very rare recording by Gothic rock/ post punk rock band The Cure in the original line-up with Robert Smith, Simon Gallup, Matthieu Hartley, and Lol Tolhurst on the TROS TOP50 TV program Star Club on 14 August 1980, today exactly 39 years ago! Simon and Robert have exchanged their instruments in this video with Simon playing guitar and Robert playing bass.

This tape was recently discovered in the vaults of AVROTROS and we are very happy to present it here for the first time since the first broadcast in 1980.

"A Forest" is a song by the English alternative rock band the Cure. Co-produced by Mike Hedges and the band's Robert Smith, it was released as a single from the band's second album Seventeen Seconds on 8 April 1980. It was their debut entry on the UK Singles Chart, reaching number 31. The accompanying music video was first shown on BBC's Top of the Pops programme on 24 April 1980.

Recorded and mixed over seven days, along with the rest of the songs from the album, "A Forest" is representative of the Cure's early-1980s gothic rock phase. The song has featured on the band's setlists for many years. Several versions have appeared on concert albums, and it was remixed and released as a single from Mixed Up in 1990.
