The Cure – Τhe recording of the debut studio album in London

English rock band formed in Crawley, West Sussex, in 1978. The band members have changed several times, with guitarist, lead vocalist, and songwriter Robert Smith being the only constant member. The band’s debut album was Three Imaginary Boys and this, along with several early singles, placed the band in the post-punk and new wave movements that had sprung up in the United Kingdom.
