Although they began life as a Clash-inspired punk band, by second single ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ there was a distinct Cure sound. With a prominent, gloomy bass line undercut by trilling guitars and Smith’s unique, keening voice, their subsequent albums would evoke dark forests and late night liasons. Following the black-hearted masterpiece Pornography (1982), they went through a glittering run of cheerier records before returning to a synth-drenched melancholia with Disintegration (1989) – regarded by many fans as the band’s peak. After returning to pure pop with the likes of Friday ‘I’m In Love’ (1992), The Cure continued making music that challenged and delighted their vast fanbase in equal measure.
