The Cure - If Only Tonight We Could Sleep

The Cure are a new wave/post-punk band which formed in 1976 in Crawley, England, United Kingdom. The band originally consisted of Robert Smith (vocals, guitar), Porl Thompson (guitar), Michael Dempsey (bass) and Lol Tolhurst (drums), with the band’s lineup overgoing several changes throughout the years and Smith remaining as the only constant member throughout the band’s history. The band has released 13 studio albums and have sold 27 million albums worldwide and are considered a major influence on goth rock, alternative rock and new wave music. Just as the group’s lineup has changed, the band’s sound has evolved throughout the years, starting off as a post-punk band similar to Wire and Gang Of Four before morphing into a gothic rock band in the early 80’s, to a synthpop group in the mid-80’s and a power-pop-alternative band in the early 90’s. The Cure has always been an alternative and very independent band which was evident from the early days.
