We’re busy this week finishing the next issue of Uncut – the final pages are being signed off and sent as I write this. We’re also packing an ungodly amount of stuff into crates and boxes ahead of another office move this weekend to the floor below the one we’ve been calling home since the last time we packed up and moved.

There’s just time to tell you, though, that the latest Uncut Ultimate Music Guide goes on sale this Thursday, May 15.

It’s a 148-page celebration of the wayward genius of Robert Smith and The Cure, the band he formed nearly four decades years ago and which almost from the very beginning of their illustrious career he seems to have almost every year promised to walk away from, even as they have become one of British rock’s most enduring and fascinating musical institutions.

This is the story of how Robert Smith took the fledgling Cure from suburban Crawley to the pinnacles of pop success, leading them through multiple line-ups whose comings and goings have included several members leaving and returning in a manner that may have left even Smith confused about exactly who was in the band at any given point.

As ever, we’ve braved the cobwebby dungeons in which the archive copies of Melody Maker and NME reside to return from those depths with the greatest Cure interviews from the last 36 years to reprint them in our Ultimate Music Guide, alongside revealing new reviews by the current team of Uncut writers, who bring their forensic attention to every Cure album. All this, plus a wealth of rare pictures, discographies, a complete collectables guide and that’s The Ultimate Music Guide: The Cure… Just Like Heaven!

The Ultimate Music Guide: The Cure is on sale from Thursday, May 15. You can order a copy at uncut.co.uk/store or download digitally at uncut.co.uk/digital-edition.

Have a good week.
