|Out of all the bands that emerged in the immediate aftermath of punk rock in the late '70s, the Cure was one of the most enduring and popular. Led through numerous incarnations by guitarist/vocalist Robert Smith, the band became notorious for their slow,
gloomy dirges and Smith's ghoulish appearance. But the public image often hid the diversity of the Cure's music. At the outset, they played jagged, edgy pop songs and they slowly evolved into a more textured outfit. Over 20 years on and with the release
of 2004's self titled album the band proved that hey still had the necessary tunes and desire to compete in the new millennium. There is no shortage of back catalogue rarities in our specialist Cure collectors store.
