Laurence "Lol" Tolhurst was born on the Third of February 1959, years later he would discover that it was the very day that Buddy Holly passed on...

...five years later two little boys at their first day of school would meet...

Lol Tolhurst and Robert Smith would start on a journey that would take them to the very pinnacle of musical success. In adolescence, Lol and Robert discovered that they shared a similar vision to form a group like the ones that influenced them. This simple inspiration would create one of the most influential, critically acclaimed and commercially successful groups of modern times: The Cure. From 1978 onwards, Lol and The Cure would chart an impressive selection of achievements:

  • Well over 27 million units sold worldwide
  • Extensive touring covering all the continents
  • 40 Platinum and Gold plaques in the US, Europe and Japan
  • Co-writing many of the group's big hits including "Let's Go To Bed", "The Walk" and "The Caterpillar"
  • Over 20 landmark award-winning music videos
Now, fast forward into the 21st century. Hot new artists ranging from 
Coldplay to The Rapture and Hot Hot Heat have repeatedly cited The 
Cure as a major influence. The strident beats/drums of the Cure’s 
masterpiece Pornography and innovative, new wave keyboard licks he 
pioneered in classic albums like Head On The Door are now being 
constantly referenced by throwback bands such as The Faint and 
Fischerspooner. Upon feeling this resurgence, Lol dove headfirst back 
into the studio with his new project: Levinhurst. Levinhurst is a 
suave, exotic group comprised of Lol's keyboards, beats, and sonic 
landscaping against the stirring vocals of Cindy Levinson and 
intricate musical crafting by Dayton Borders. Cindy's Eurasian lineage 
adds an ethereal, dreamy feel that incorporates everything from rock, 
trip-hop, blues and even Middle Eastern ragaas. Layer that on top of 
Lol's mixture of retro keyboard phrases/riffs/colors with Dayton's 
intriguing instrumental work and the result leaps into the future as 
much as it acknowledges his past.  The resulting album, Perfect Life, 
covers that gamut quite nicely with a wider musical range than most 
electro artists attempt to fill. The minimalist approach of "Let's Go" 
fits nicely with the down-beat sitar tinged "Sad Man." The Giorgio 
Moroder-pulsing bassline of "Sorrow" feels just at home near the 
tribal beats that "More/Mad" devolves into.  Add in addictive 
songwriting and you have an album that will appeal to old Cure fans 
alongside newcomers to the Electro genre. Full Contact will release 
the album on March 23, 2004.

"I wanted to do something positive now as I have felt inspired by recent trends in music," says Lol. "It feels to me like when I first started making music, which seemed like a good enough reason to do some more!" It is this inspiration that Lol used as a start off point for further sonic experiments. "Listening to new artists utilize the sound I helped develop inspired me to reach now for new sounds in the studio. The finished CD, Perfect Life, is easily the most exhilarating project I've been able to work on since the early Cure records." The timing for Perfect Life couldn't be more perfect as 2003 marks the 25th anniversary of The Cure. In addition to first time eligibility for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, active plans are in the works for remastering the entire Cure catalog. "It's amazing to me that The Cure still has this much viability and resonance so many years later," remarks Lol. "If you had told the schoolboy versions of Robert and myself this is where we'd end up, we wouldn't have believed it!" It sounds like Perfect Life was the most appropriate title Laurence could have given to the Levinhurst CD.
