Disco-punk pinups the Rapture know more than a little something about Pornography. As the band was forming the sound for their heralded 2003 full-length debut, Echoes, a friend passed along a tape of the 1982 Cure album to singer-guitarist Luke Jenner. ”I kind of lost touch with them for a while because I got old and a little too cool for school,” the 28-year-old says. Next thing he knew, the dour Smith and Co. new-wave dance grooves he obsessed over as a kid crept into their music. ”I just like how the whole record was this messy acid trip. I remember reading interviews with Robert talking about taking loads of acid.” So just how much did they emulate the record? ”We’ve all taken drugs,” he replies, ”but no…we’ve never been incredibly hedonistic.”
