The band has experienced several line-up changes, with frontman, vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter Robert Smith (Robert Smith (musician)) being the only constant member. The Cure first began releasing music in the late 1970s with its debut album ''Three Imaginary Boys'' (1979); this, along with several early singles, placed the band as part of the post-punk and New Wave (New Wave music) 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 helped form the gothic rock genre. commons:Crawley

'''Crawley''' ( and had a population of 106,597 at the time of the 2011 Census (United Kingdom Census 2011).
The area has been inhabited since the Stone Age (Three-age system), and was a centre of ironworking in Roman (Roman Britain) times. Crawley developed slowly as a market town from the 13th century, serving the surrounding villages in the Weald; its location on the main road from London to Brighton brought a passing trade, encouraging the development of coaching inns. It was connected to the railway network in the 1840s.
Gatwick Airport, now one of Britain's busiest international airports, opened on the edge of the town in the 1940s, encouraging commercial and industrial growth. After the Second World War, the British Government planned to move large numbers of people and jobs out of London and into new towns (New towns in the United Kingdom) around South East England. The New Towns Act 1946 designated Crawley as the site of one of these. A master plan was developed for the establishment of new residential, commercial, industrial and civic areas, and rapid development greatly increased the size and population of the town in a few decades.
The town comprises thirteen residential neighbourhoods based around the core of the old market town, and separated by main roads and railway lines. The nearby communities of Ifield (Ifield, Crawley), Pound Hill (Pound Hill, Crawley) and Three Bridges were absorbed into the new town at different stages of its development. As of 2009, expansion is planned in the west and northwest of the town, in co-operation with Horsham District Council (Horsham (district)). Economically, the town has developed into the main centre of industry and employment between London and the south coast of England. A large industrial area supports industries and services, many of which are connected with the airport, and the commercial and retail sectors continue to expand.
