• Review of "Close` To Me", L.A. Times, 1986.

  • Shooting the Close To Me video. That'll be Tim in the speedos, his back to camera.

  • What did you do at the office today, dear? Oh, I filmed inside a wardrobe and got chucked off a cliff.

THE CURE CLOSE TO ME

vid

"I told Pap the video should somehow capture the sort of claustrophobia you’d get if you were in a wardrobe that you couldn’t try to get out of too violently because you were on a cliff edge. And when it came to the day of the video we found he’d taken it rather literally, and we were to be immersed in water inside a wardrobe." (Robert Smith.)
