The Cure discography highlights:
- The band was formed by Robert Smith and with a couple of his school friends. This happened in 1976 and at first the band was called "Easy Cure". Before this, Smith played in a band called "The Obelisk". This band could be called the first incarnation of "The Cure".
- In 1977, "Easy Cure" won a band competition that earned them a recording deal with Hansa Records from Germany. Although making some recordings for the label, none of them were ever released. Soon the contract was dissolved and the band became a trio changing their name to "The Cure".
