MM: Missing Link by Curve

The word 'underrated' is overused when it comes to popular music. It often is a cypher for 'I love this band and they should have the same recognition as the Beatles.' Nevertheless, I think the word applies perfectly to Curve.

Curve formed in 1990 around the nucleus of Dean Garcia and Toni Halliday, who had previously worked together in a band called State of Play. They released several EPs and two studio albums on Dave Stewart's Anxious label before they disbanded the group for the first time in 1994. Their mix of multi-layered guitars and electronic beats made them popular with the music press, gaining them some chart success.

Curve returned in 1996, but they failed to recapture their former success, even though the sound that they pioneered had since been popularised by the likes of Garbage. Halliday quit the project in 2005 and continues to work in the music business, as does Garcia.
