The Cure must have been listening to "Gut Feeling" and certainly its intro from the USA band Devo found on the "Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!" album to come up with this cult tune named "A Forest". A song still played nowadays from mp3 computer jukeboxes in some of your most boring inner-city bars…
Funny inspiration or intensive listening followed years later by creative rehearsals? Lack of sampler budget or discrete plagiarism? Watherver, both of these tunes are fine to me but the two years younger Devo way is certainly more unfixed.
