      CUREPEDIA: An A-Z Of The Cure

        The Cure are arguably the biggest alternative rock band in the world. Their popularity is not limited to any one country, or even continent. Between 1985 and 2000 every album they released went to at least Gold in the UK, the US or both. In America they have earned four Platinum albums, and they are estimated to have sold 30 million albums worldwide. Their iconic status as elder statesmen of Alternative Rock remains undiminished - if anything, their tireless touring has ensured that it has grown with every passing year - and lead singer Robert Smith is an endlessly fascinating figure to successive generations of fans. The Cure's influence reverberates through genres including Emo, Goth, Industrial and Indie Rock.

        The book is an encyclopaedic A-Z of The Cure examining and riffing on miscellaneous trivia, biographies of the band members past and present, summaries of each album and selected songs, details of the band's various tours and films, and essays on broader topics such as their image, their politics and their influences. Playful, eccentric and irreverent - true to the spirit of the band itself - CUREPEDIA is a comprehensive biography of one of the biggest alternative rock bands in the world.

                  ‘Wish’ released in April 1992 was The Cure’s 9th studio album and reached Number 1 in the UK Album Chart on its release. It also reached Number 2 in the USA, where it was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Alternative Music Album category.

                  The first single to be released from the album, “High” was released in March 1992 and reached #8 in the UK Singles chart, but the album is probably best known for the 2nd single, “Friday I’m In Love” which reached #6 in May 1992.

                  The 3rd and final single from the album was “A Letter To Elise” which peaked at #28 in October 1992.

                  Mamas Gun

                  Cure The Jones

                    Mamas Gun animate the spirit of conscious ‘70s soul on bold and big-hearted new album, 'Cure The Jones'. Out ofthe turbulence of the last two years comes the fifth album from UK-based soul outfit Mamas Gun - a lush, nuancedand expansively contemporary meditation on a world turned upside down, embedded in the classic soul traditionof Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye.

                    Building on 2018 album Golden Days and the band’s status as a world-renownedlive act, 11-track opus Cure The Jones represents Mamas Guns’ most complete and powerful work to date - ajoyous and sophisticated exposition of song-craft, that explores themes of love, loss, life through the most pressingsocial and political issues of the day. Written and produced during the pandemic by Mamas Gun frontman AndyPlatts with additional intricate soundscaping from drummer Chris Boot, Cure The Jones was recorded direct to tapewith an array of analogue gear at Platts’ home studio in just three days, focussing the soulful energy of the bandinto a coherent gospel-tinged whole.

                    “Rather wonderful music that combines classic soul influences with a distinctly modern production approach” - Sunday Times.

                        The Cure

                        Faith

                          Released in September 1981 The Cure's 3rd album is seen by aficianados as probably their finest hour. It is a moody, melancholy, sleek and glacial affair that was clearly influenced by Joy Division but in a very good way indeed! Basically it's more than a tad gloomy, but that's why we love it!

                          The Cure

                          Seventeen Seconds

                            Released in May 1980, this record is the place where The Cure really started to develop their unique early 80's sound. It's sparse, precise and rhythmic, with those gorgeous melodies always on top. This album features 'A Forest' which is still regarded as one of The Cure's greatest ever songs.

                            STAFF COMMENTS

                            Martin says: My favourite Cure album. A giant leap forward from the post punky snarl of "Three Imaginary Boys", "Seventeen Seconds" set the scene for the brooding majesty that was to follow. Sombre, stripped back and with a quiet power that was to bettered only (maybe) by Joy Division. While it the features such stark beauty as "A Forest", "M", "In Your House" and "At Night", the whole is a thing of cold magnificence that, in my humble opinion, few, if anyone, ever surpassed.

                            The Cure

                            Pornography

                              This is a heavy, dark, churning, spiralling (whisper it) Goth Rock record that is unremittingly doomy but always melodic. Released in 1982, this is The Cure at their most dramatic.

                              Three Imaginary Boys

                                The Cure's debut album came out in the summer of 1979 and unlike their subsequent doom and darkness period, it is a fine, catchy piece of clipped, new wave pop. There's a youthful exhuberance here that would slowly dissipate as the band developed.

                                Lee Hazlewood

                                Its Cause And Cure

                                  The mid-to-late '60s were strange days for Lee Hazlewood. Having struck gold as songwriter and vocal foil for Nancy Sinatra, he signed up to MGM as an artist in his own right, and between 1966 and 1968, produced three ambitious solo albums that were eclectic, idiosyncratic, and most of all, unpredictable.

                                  It was a happy time for Lee; his music was hot on the charts, he was fully immersed in his collaboration with his muse, Suzi Jane Hokom.

                                  The second of his MGM trilogy - 1967's peculiarly named Lee Hazlewoodism: Its Cause And Cure - took on countrified French ye-ye (“The Girls In Paris”), a tale of a young bullfighter built on Spanish guitar and choral cowboys (“Jose”), a string-drenched song about the passing of time (“The Old Man And His Guitar”), and a western epic about a Native American tribe (“The Nights”). And that was just the first four tracks. Elsewhere, the honky tonk madness of “Suzi Jane Is Back In Town,” the Byrds-like jangle of “In Our Time” and–in the bonus tracks–an instrumental named “Batman” confirm this to be one of Hazlewood's most far-ranging, far-out LPs ever.

                                  It’s the result of two main factors: ambition–to top Phil Spector, primarily–and cash, which paid for orchestras, plush studios, and the inestimable talents of arranger Billy Strange. “I think the big sound of those records came out of the Spector thing,” says Hokom, in the new liner notes. “If you can have a big sound and you have money to burn… it was a flamboyancy.”

                                  Released before the Nancy & Lee LP–a bona fide hit for Reprise Records–Hazlewoodism was a tougher nut to crack, a record that confused by combining po-faced delivery with unabashed comical touches. By 1967, Hazlewood had founded the LHI imprint, and was busy building his own empire–one we've been lovingly archiving for the past few years. We now present this missing link in the story, plus predecessor, The Very Special World Of Lee Hazlewood and follow-up, Something Special. Welcome to Hazlewood's magnificent–and mad–MGM years.

                                  The Cure's new studio album, their thirteenth, is appropriately called "4:13 Dream". 'There are songs about relationships, the material world, politics and religion. They're very upfront and dynamic,' says Smith of the new songs. 'People will be surprised how stripped-down and in-your-face the record is.'

                                  A Cure For Whatever Ales You

                                    Second album on Moon Ska; the Skoidats are able to mix styles like ska, oi! and reggae, this time making the oi! rawer,the ska more skankin' and the reggae sweet as a nut. They've managed to record some of the best skinhead reggae recorded for nearly 20 years. Rounding it off with an angry punk version of Cock Sparrer's "Running Riot" for good measure.
