ALREADY hailed by the Studs, this has everyone in the Maker office in paroxysms of squealing, and personally, I'm well up for turning into a hyacinth every time it comes on. An extraordinary debut indeed, as sinister and lithe as cleverness can get. We have to admit it's much like Eurythmics if they were young and fresh and hungry and weren't afraid of guitar spillage and subliminal rappers, but then maybe it's time all these new hairies discovered tunes and singing and words. Because we should always want what we have not got Curve are a cut above, display a terrifying excess of parallel ideas and should rule the world within months. Curve dare (ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!).
