Turned out as The Easy Cure (previously known as Malice and before that as Obelisk) the English Crawley-grown post punks came up with The Cure, which changed many lives because their formula finally caught on.
The germination source for the band name Easy Cure is believed to have been drummer Laurence 'Lol' Tolhurst, the composer of a song with that name. The band name of course has several development histories, one of which is that the band wanted to provide a remedy for the (apparently considered sickening) top forty culture. There are also reports stating that the psychiatrist of legendary frontman Robert Smith told him that music probably is the cure for his supposedly precarious mental condition.
The lyrics of a song by Laurence Tolhurst could have offered the much needed aid, if it wasn’t for the fact that the text of I Want To Be Old (Easy Cure) - a rather obscure track on the Deluxe Edition of the album Three Imaginary Boys from 2004 – does not mention any easy cure at all.
