Curepedia: An A-Z of The Cure (Hardback)

£20.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

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.

Simon Price is a highly-experienced British music journalist whose career includes nine years as one of the main feature writers at Melody Maker and twelve as the senior Rock & Pop Critic for the Independent On Sunday newspaper. The alternative music of the 1980s is one of his specialist areas. His first book, EVERYTHING(A Book About Manic Street Preachers) became the fastest-selling rock biography in British history on its publication by Virgin in 1999, selling the first 10,000 copies in record time and the next 10,000 almost as quickly. It was named Book Of The Year by NME and Rock Book Of The Decade by The Guardian. He first became a fan of The Cure as a teenager in the 1980s, and has written about them several times since, for various publications.
