what happened next

Wire split in 1980 but have reformed a couple of times and are still active with almost the original line up above.

There have been many line-ups of The Cure, Smith the only constant and Gallup there most of the time, The Cure are still gigging and headlined the 2012 Reading and Leeds festivals and played London gigs in 2014.
