The Cure: A Perfect Dream by Ian Gittins

The Cure’s story is a fantastical pop fable, but their trajectory has not been one of unbroken success. Along the way, their uneven, uneasy pop odyssey has taken in fierce intra-band tensions and fall-outs, numerous line-up changes and even a bitter court case that saw original group members feuding over payments and ownership of the band’s name.

There has been alcoholism, substance abuse and countless long, dark nights of the soul, many of which have been translated into luscious dark-rock symphonies. From gawky teenage art-punks in Crawley to gnomic, venerable rock royalty with 30 million record sales to their name, their journey has been a scarcely believable, vivid pop hallucination.

 
A Perfect Dream is the tall tale of a truly unique British pop entity. It’s the story of The Cure.

The book is out September 2018 https://www.palazzoeditions.com/thecure

None of the pics can be seen (at least not on my screen here).  :(

This average promo-text does not sound too promising, tbh.  :roll:
Oh I miss the kiss of treachery...

Someone likes the word dark....
Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves
