    Texas Music Matters posted a show that featured different Texan songwriters discussing a record that influenced their own music. Fast forward to around the middle of the show where Britt talks about his favorite Cure album:

    That was a huge album for me as well. I have had the pleasure of talking to the boys back in the day and I was struck by the overlap in our musical tastes. I didn't have too many friends that listened to Wire, so I was stoked when I saw Spoon cover Lowdown and enjoyed that influence on their music. As for whether or not 17 Seconds still stands up, it's a classic Britt, whether anyone else realizes it or not.
