The legendary English rock band The Cure rose to fame in the early 1970’s, first as its earliest incarnation, the Obelisk, which was established by Robert Smith, Laurence Tolhurt, and Mick Dempsey, who were classmates currently attending middle school together in Sussex. Over the next few years, the group was reformed a number of times, until Porl Thompson joined the group to establish Easy Cure in 1977.
Following a successful talent competition in which the band won, Easy Cure garnered its first recording contract, although the success was short lived and the group was eventually dropped from the label. After a few changes to the lineup, the band re-established as a trio without Thompson, and re-named themselves the Cure. A series of demo tapes for the newly formed band found their way into the hands of the representatives at Polydor Records, who signed the Cure in 1978 and launched the band’s career.
With the release of the Cure’s debut single, “Killing an Arab,” the Cure rose to both fame and controversy. Despite the title serving as a reference to Camus’s famous novel, The Stranger, the song served to bring the band to the forefront of the music conversation, setting the stage for the Cure’s debut, Three Imaginary Boys, in 1979. The album spawned the songs “Boys Don’t Cry,” and “Jumping Someone Else’s Train,” although it received lukewarm reception from both critics and fans.
By the early 1980’s, the Cure was ready for a new sound, and their new gothic approach finally brought them to the level of success they’d desired. Seventeen Seconds was released in 1980 and featured the Cure’s first hit single, “ A Forest.” The success of the second album led to a re-release of the band’s first, under the new title Boys Don’t Cry, and the Cure slowly rose to legendary status, becoming one of the most iconic bands of the 1980’s and 1990’s.
For the last three decades, the Cure has given fans the albums Faith (1981), Pornography (1982), the Top (1984), the Head on the Door (1985), Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me (1987), Disintegration (1989), Wish (1992), Wild Mood Swings (1996), Bloodflowers (2000), the Cure (2004), and 4:13 Dream (2008.) The albums spawned the hit singles “The Walk,” “The Love Cats,” “The Caterpillar,” “Close to Me,” “Why Can’t I Be You,” “Just Like Heaven,” “Fascination Street,” “Lovesong,” “Pictures of You,” “Never Enough,” “High,” “A Letter to Elise,” “The End of the World,” and “The Only One.”
The Cure continues to perform and record with the current lineup of Robert Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O’Donnell, Jason Cooper, and Reeves Gabrels. Recently, the Cure has launched worldwide tours taking them to Europe, the Americas, and Asia, and the band’s music has been featured on the hit CW series One Tree Hill. Thus far, the Cure has sold nearly thirty million albums, the most recent of which, 4:26 Dream, was released in 2014.
