The Cure – Creators of Adventurous & Passionate Music
Churning out 13 studio albums so far, The Cure is among the most influential New Wave bands in history. Exploding onto the music scene in 1976, their early years featured them more as a post-punk ensemble and it was during the 80s that they ventured into pop-friendly melodies. The British band found international fame with songs like “Friday I’m in Love” and “Just Like Heaven”.
Founded by Robert Smith, he’s the only permanent member who has remained with the band in all these years. Through his efforts The Cure rose from moderate success into a goth rock sensation. Besides him, Simon Gallup (bassist) and Port Thompson (guitarist) have remained with the band the longest and are the most consistent contributing musicians. But The Cure is Robert Smith’s brainchild.
The Inevitable Rise
Creators of the unique “mope-rock” sound, The Cure treated music lovers to a mix of cocky lyrics, Robert Smith’s low-keyed vocal whine and restrained melodies. Keeping in tune with his music, Smith has always been seen in a death-white makeup, teased black hair and crimson lipstick. Introducing goth rock to the listeners, they built their sound around bass riffs and lyrics full of imagery. They were able to layer their compositions successfully and their words hit home with the fans.
They made a splash with the controversial single “Killing an Arab” and following two moderately successful albums, released the commercially hit record “Faith” in 1981. The Cure’s 7th album “Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me” was an international hit. It featured the Billboard Top 40 track “Just Like Heaven”, which went on to become a rocking number performed in all their concerts. Other popular singles from the album were “Why Can't I Be You?” and “Hot Hot Hot!!”.
“Disintegration”, their 8th album catapulted the band to superstardom and the songs “Lovesong,” “Friday I’m In Love” and “Pictures of You” received a lot of airtime and acclaim. All the while The Cure continued to tour and their shows witnessed a huge crowd, all looking forward to quality rick music.
