A veritable modern-day Goth-rock classic that virtually defines the term "sonic cathedral", The Cure's "Bloodflowers", which constituted the title track to their often-underrated 2000 masterwork, gets showcased in a powerhouse performance at the Tempodrom arena in Berlin in November 2002. Be awed by the band's virtuosic firepower in this masterfully shot clip, which perfectly captures Simon Gallup's rock-steady bass underpinnings, Jason Cooper's percussive pyrotechnics, Perry Bamonte's superior axe-wielding capabilities, Roger O'Donnell's synth flourishes, and of course, the invariable, inherent frontman charisma of Crawley's most famous son, Robert Smith.
