Cut Here (4:10)

Cover of Greatest Hits

From Greatest Hits and 11 other releases

“Cut Here” is the name of a single released by the British group The Cure in 2001 on Fiction Records / Elektra Records. The song was initially released on the album Greatest Hits.


The song gets its title from the fact that Robert Smith had believed it would be the last song the band would record, and it is also an anagram of the band’s name. This song is about the suicide of friend and Associates singer Billy Mackenzie in 1997.

“Cut Here” was originally going to be the B-Side with “Signal to Noise” being the A-Side. This fact was confirmed in Join the Dots, with an acoustic version of “Signal to Noise” being intended to be on Greatest Hits before the switch. “Signal to Noise” was played live in The Cure’s 2005 festivals because returning member Porl Thompson really liked the song. It was one of the rare B-Sides to be performed live regularly. (The last was “The Big Hand” in 1992.) “Cut Here” was played sparringly at festivals from 2001-2002 and has not been played since.
