The Cure – The Artist

The Cure are an English rock band formed in Crawley in 1976. The group has experienced continuous line-up changes over its lifespan, with vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter Robert Smith being the only constant member. The band’s debut album was Three Imaginary Boys (1979) and this, along with several early singles, placed the band in the post-punk and new wave movements that had sprung up in the wake of the punk rock revolution in the United Kingdom. During the early 1980s the band’s increasingly dark and tormented music, as well as Smith’s stage look, was a staple of the emerging style of music known as gothic rock.

A Forest – The Song

A Forest is a song by the English alternative rock band the Cure. Co-produced by Mike Hedges and the band’s Robert Smith, it was released as a single from the band’s second album Seventeen Seconds in 1980. It was their debut entry on the UK Singles Chart, reaching number 31. Recorded and mixed over seven days, along with the rest of the songs from the album, “A Forest” is representative of the Cure’s early-1980s gothic rock phase. The song has featured on the band’s setlists for many years. Several versions have appeared on concert albums, and it was remixed and released as a single from Mixed Up in 1990.
