The Cure are an English rock band who formed in Crawley in 1976. While the line up has changed several times, lead singer and songwriter Robert Smith remains the only constant member.
Bursting forth from the post-punk and new-wave movements of the '80s, Smith's increasingly dark appearance and music has led to The Cure being cited as a founder of gothic rock. Robert Smith briefly pulled a double shift each night by played guitar with Siouxsie and the Banshees when the Cure supported them on their Join Hands tour of England, Northern Ireland, and Scotland.
The outfit have release 13 studio albums including Disintegration via Fiction Records, which saw the band achieve worldwide stardom.
