Photos: Robert Smith Through the Years. You have a habit of retiring after each Cure album, yet here you are. In the past, we’ve done incredibly long tours for months and months at a time, and you get sick of everyone around you. It just drives you insane, and the easiest way out, you feel at that moment, is just to disband everything, dissolve everything and to just walk away from it. I don’t feel that this time. I actually feel very enthusiastic about the band at the moment

Robert Smith looks remarkably well for a man who's spent the morning in a graveyard: eyes the colour of retouched travel-brochure sky, healthy pallor and bearing, and brandishing a bottle of Evian. The cemetery is, it should be mentioned, a TV-sitcom graveyard, making it quintessential Robert Smith, as the sad-on-the-outside, happy-on-the-inside picture of him has come to replace the Gloomy Gus persona he's usually attributed with. In a lot of ways, Smith isn't that different from the alarmingly self-possessed, determined 20-year-old I met after a Cure show in London, in the early spring of 1979. Smith has hit his stride now, and there's something reassuring about having achieved that level of success and still having these pet peeves, these hate objects that haunt the mental mantelpiece like Jeff Koons objets d'art.
