The Cure Biography
The Cure was formed by Robert Smith in 1976 as Easy Cure, with Michael Dempsey on guitar, Lol Tolhurst on percussion, and Porl Thompson as the lead guitarist. Smith, originally the band’s pianist, took on the role as lead singer after they could not find a vocalist after holding several auditions.
After changing their name to the Cure, the band was signed to the newly formed Fiction record label in 1978. A year later, the Cure released their debut album, Three Imaginary Boys. Smith was unhappy with the final product, however the album was well-received by critics. The album featured singles such as “10:15 Saturday Night” and a cover of “Foxy Lady,” a popular song originally written by Jimi Hendrix.
Since the release of their debut album, the Cure has released a total of 13 albums, primarily throughout the 1980s and 1990s. The Cure has had many sounds over the years, going through a gothic phase in the early 1980s, which was first heard on the album Seventeen Seconds.
In 1987 the Cure released their seventh album, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, which put the band on the map in the United States. With singles such as “Why Can’t I Be You” and “Catch,” the album reached 35 on the US Billboard 200 and was certified platinum.
