The Cure

The Cure are a gothic rock band formed in West Sussex, England in 1978. Guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Robert Smith has remained the only constant member throughout numerous line-up changes. The Cure’s debut album “Three Imaginary Boys” (1979) placed the band in the post-punk and new wave movements. It is their second album “Seventeen Seconds” (1980) that the increasingly dark and tormented style along with Smith’s strange style saw the band become a strong influence on the emerging genre of gothic rock and its surrounding subculture
