About this Item

Paperback. 552 pages. The Cure are a British rock band formed in Crawley, West Sussex, England in 1976. The band has experienced several line-up changes, with frontman, vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter Robert Smith being the only constant member. The Cure first began releasing music in the late 1970s with its debut album Three Imaginary Boys (1979); this, along with several early singles, placed the band as part of the post-punk and new wave movements that had sprung up in the wake of the punk rock revolution in the United Kingdom. During the early 1980s, the bands increasingly dark and tormented music helped form the gothic rock genre. After the release of Pornography (1982), the bands future was uncertain and Smith was keen to move past the gloomy reputation his band had acquired. With the 1982 single Lets Go to Bed, Smith began to place a pop sensibility into the bands music (as well as a unique stage look). The Cures popularity increased as the decade wore on, especially in the United States where the songs Just Like Heaven, Lovesong and Friday Im in Love entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart. By the start of the 1990s, The Cure were one of the most popular alternative rock bands in the world. The band is estimated to have sold 27 million albums as of 2004. The Cure have released thirteen studio albums, ten EPs and over thirty singles during the course of their career, with a fourteenth studio album in the making.
