In their very earliest days, the band emerged as one of the progenitors of the budding post-punk music scene which was happening in England, their music style was associated by the media with gothic rock, taking influences from the mysticism associated with Native Americans and psychedelic rock acts such as The Doors.[1] Post punk generally refers to the particularly fertile and creative period following the initial punk rock explosion.

It was after re-locating to London and releasing their album Love that the Cult gained a larger audience, charting at #4 in the United Kingdom and producing popular singles such as She Sells Sanctuary and Rain. Following this the band moved away from their original sound, adopting a more hard rock approach; with the release of the album Electric and the single Love Removal Machine they broke into the North American market, their 1989 effort Sonic Temple also proved to be a huge commercial success.

The band was fraying behind the scenes, due to alcohol abuse and off-stage tensions during the early 1990s. In early 1995, the Cult split up, citing unspecified problems on a South American tour.[1] Between 1999 and 2002, the band reformed to record the album Beyond Good and Evil, and reissued all of their albums in Asia and eastern Europe in 2003 and Japan in 2004.

History

Early years (1981-1984)

In 1981, singer Ian Astbury joined a local band in Bradford, England, as the lead vocalist and renamed the group "Southern Death Cult" after a Native American tribe from the Mississippi delta in the 14th and 15th centuries. The band's first performance was at the Queen's Hall in Bradford, England, on October 29, 1981. The band was together for about 16 months, releasing a double A-sided single, "Moya", and touring with Bauhaus and Theatre of Hate before breaking up after a performance in Manchester in February 1983. The Southern Death Cult compilation album, essentially a collection of the single, radio sessions and live performances - one of which was recorded by an audience member with a tape recorder - was released by Beggars Banquet. In 2006 Ian Astbury said he would love to record the album that Southern Death Cult never made. Ian Astpurie (born May 14, 1962, in Heswall, Cheshire) is an English rock singer and lyricist. ...

In April 1983, Astbury teamed up with guitarist Billy Duffy and formed the band "Death Cult". Duffy had previously been in The Nosebleeds, Lonesome No More and then Theatre of Hate. In addition to Astbury and Duffy, the band also included Jamie Stewart (bass) and Raymond Taylor Smith (later known as Ray Mondo) (drums), both from the Harrow, London based post-punk band, Ritual. Death Cult made their live debut in Oslo, Norway in late June 1983 and released the Death Cult EP in July 1983, then toured throughout Europe.

Another European tour, with UK dates, followed later that autumn. To tone down the gothic connotations of their name, and to gain broader appeal, the band changed its name to "The Cult" in January 1984 before appearing on the (UK) Channel 4 television show, The Tube.

The Cult's first studio record was recorded at Rockfield Studios, in Monmouth, Wales in 1984. The record was originally to be produced by Joe Julian, but after having already recorded the drum tracks, the band decided to replace him with John Brand.

The band recorded the songs which later became known as; "Butterflies", "(The) Gimmick", "A Flower in the Desert", "Horse Nation", "Spiritwalker", "Bad Medicine (Waltz)", "Dreamtime", "With Love" (later known as "Ship of Fools", and also "Sea and Sky"), "Bone Bag", "Too Young", "83rd Dream", and one untitled outtake. It is unknown what the outtake was, or whether it was developed into a song at a later date. Songs like "Horse Nation" showed Astbury's already intense interest in Native American issues, with the lyrics to "Horse Nation", "See them prancing, they come neighing, to a horse nation", taken almost verbatim from the book Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, while "Spiritwalker" dealt with shamanism, and the record's title and title track are overtly influenced by Australian Aboriginal beliefs.

In June 1985, following his increasingly erratic behaviour, drummer Nigel Preston was fired from the band. Big Country's drummer Mark Brzezicki was picked to replace Preston. The Cult recorded their second album in July and August 1985, which became the Love album. The band's music and image shifted from its punk-oriented roots to 1970s psychedelia influences. Love was a successful independent record, selling 300,000 copies in the UK, 500,000 copies in Europe, 100,000 in Australia, and eventually over 1.5 million copies in North America.

From mid-1985 to 1986, the band went on a worldwide tour with new drummer, Les Warner (who had previously played with Julian Lennon and Johnny Thunders). Two more official singles from the Love album followed; "Rain" (charting in the UK at #14) and "Revolution" (charting in the UK at #30). Neither of these singles charted in the US. Another single, "Nirvana", was issued only in Poland. The album version of "Rain", as well as the remix "(Here Comes the) Rain", were used in the Italian horror film Demoni 2.

Once back in England, the band booked themselves into the Manor Studios in Oxfordshire, with producer Steve Brown (who had produced Love), and recorded over a dozen new songs.

Rubin agreed to work with the band, but only if they rerecorded the song. Rubin eventually talked them into rerecording the entire record. The Cult's record company, Beggars Banquet, was displeased with this, as two months and £250,000 had already been spent on the record. However, after hearing the New York recording, Beggars Banquet agreed to proceed. The first single was released in February 1987, and the new version of the album appeared in April that same year as Electric, reaching #4 and outselling Love. A few tracks from the original Peace album appeared on the single versions of "Love Removal Machine", and "Lil Devil".

In the US, The Cult, now consisting of Ian Astbury, Billy Duffy, Jamie Stewart, Les Warner and Kid Chaos, were supported by the then unknown Guns N' Roses. The band also appeared at Roskilde Festival in Denmark in June 1987. When the world tour wound through Australia, the band wrecked £30,000 worth of equipment, and as a result they could not tour Japan, as no company would rent them new equipment.

Ceremony (1991)

During the actual album recording sessions, Mickey Curry was recruited again to play drums, with Charley Drayton on bass, and various other performers.

The Cult (Black Sheep) (1994-1995)

The Cult (1994)

With the same line-up still in place, the band released The Cult (also referred to as the "Black Sheep" record) in October 1994 produced by Bob Rock. Ian Astbury referred to the record as, "very personal, and very revealing" songs about his life, with the subject matter ranging from sexual abuse at the age of 15, to the death of Nigel Preston, to his directionless years spent in Glasgow in the late 1970s. But the record achieved little success, only reaching #69 in the US, and #21 in the UK. The record reportedly went to number one in Portugal also, but quickly dropped out of sight. The single "Coming Down (Drug Tongue)" was released with the band going on tour in support of the new album. Only one more single, "Star", was officially released with a live appearance on UK TV show The Word. "Star" began life in 1986 as "Tom Petty" before being dropped by the band during rehearsals. In 1993 the song was resurrected once again as "Starchild", and was finally completed for the record in 1994 as, just simply, "Star". Image File history File links The_cult_album. ...

When the band began touring in winter 1994, they augmented the line up with James Stevenson on rhythm guitar. As with the Ceremony record several years earlier, no other official singles were released, but several other songs were released on a strictly limited basis: "Sacred Life" was released in Spain and the Netherlands, "Be Free" was issued in Canada and France, "Saints Are Down" was issued in Greece, but none of the songs gained much commercial success.

Hiatus (1995-1998)

During the 1995 tour of South America, despite the fact that several more new songs had already been recorded, the tour was cancelled after an appearance in Rio de Janeiro in March, and the band splitting-up citing unspecified problems on a recent South American tour. This article is about the Brazilian city. ...


Singer Ian Astbury started up a garage band called "Holy Barbarians" a few months later. The band made their live debut at the 100 Club in London in February 1996 and released their first (and only) record in May 1996, and toured throughout North America and Europe for the rest of 1996. The band allegedly started writing material for a second record in 1997, but the band was dissolved and Ian Astbury began writing and recording a solo record. Throughout 1997 and 1998 Ian Astbury recorded his solo record, originally to be titled Natural Born Guerilla, later called "High Time Amplifier", ultimately the record remained unreleased until June 2000 when it was released under the name, SpiritLightSpeed. Astbury played one solo concert in 1999, and later said he had intended to do a solo tour, however when The Cult reunited in 1999, Astbury dropped this idea.

Reunion (1999-2001)

In 1999, Astbury and Duffy reformed The Cult with Matt Sorum and ex-Porno for Pyros bassist Martyn LeNoble. Their first official concert was at the Tibetan Freedom Concert in June 1999, after having rehearsed at shows in the Los Angeles area. The band's 1999 'Cult Rising' reunion tour resulted in a sold out 30 date tour of the US, ending with 8 consecutive sold out nights at the LA House of Blues.

In 2000, the band toured South Africa and North and South America, and contributed the song "Painted On My Heart" to the soundtrack of the movie Gone In 60 Seconds. The song was featured prominently and the melody was fused into parts of the score. In June, Ian Astbury's long delayed solo record was finally released as Spirit/ Light/ Speed, but it failed to gain much success. In November 2000, another authorised greatest hits compilation was released, Pure Cult: The Singles, along with an accompanying DVD, which was later certified gold in Canada.

In November 2000, Beggars Banquet released 15000 copies of a six disc boxset (with a bonus seventh disc for the first 5000 copies) titled "Rare Cult". The boxset consists of album outtakes, demos, radio broadcasts, and album b sides. It is most notable for including the withdrawn "Peace" album in its entirety.


In 2001, the band signed to Atlantic Records and recorded a new album, Beyond Good And Evil, originally being produced by Mick Jones of Foreigner, until Jones bowed out to tour with Foreigner. Astbury and Duffy co-wrote a song with Jones, an odd occurrence, as in the past, neither Astbury or Duffy would co-write their material. Bob Rock was the producer, Martyn LeNoble and Chris Wyse were bassists on the recording, and Mike Dimkitch played rhythm guitar on tour. Atlantic Records (Atlantic Recording Corporation) is an American record label, and operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of Warner Music Group. ...

However Beyond Good And Evil was not the comeback record the band had hoped for. Despite reaching #37 in the US, #22 in Canada, and #25 in Spain, sales quickly dropped, only selling roughly 500,000 copies worldwide. The first single "Rise", reached #41 in the US, and #2 on the mainstream rock charts, but Atlantic Records quickly pulled the song from radio playlists. Ian Astbury would later describe the experience with Atlantic to be "soul destroying", after Atlantic tried to tamper with the lyrics, the record cover, and choice of singles from the record.


After the first single from the record, The Cult's working relationship with Atlantic was on paper only, with Atlantic pulling "Rise" from the radio stations playlists, and stopping all promotion of the record. The second single "Breathe" was only released as a radio station promo, and the final single "True Believers" was only on a compilation sampler disc released in January 2002 (after The Cult's tour had already ended). Despite "True Believers" receiving radio airplay in Australia, both singles went largely unnoticed, and both Astbury and Duffy walked away from the project. Martyn LeNoble rejoined the band for the initial dates in early 2001, and Billy Morrison filled in on bass for the majority of the 2001 tour.


The European tour of 2001 was cancelled, largely due to security concerns after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the band flew back to the US to tour again with Aerosmith. But the 11 week tour was considered by fans to be a disaster, as the band played only a brief rundown of their greatest hits. A few odd club shows in various cities allowed The Cult to perform an entire show. In October 2001, a show at the Grand Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles was filmed for release on DVD. After that, with the tour ending in December 2001, the band took most of 2002 off, only emerging in October to play a brief series of dates in the US to promote the release of the DVD, with Scott Garrett and Craig Adams rejoining the band. A sequential look at United Flight 175 crashing into the south tower of the World Trade Center The September 11, 2001 attacks (often referred to as 9/11—pronounced nine eleven or nine one one) consisted of a series of coordinated terrorist[1] suicide attacks upon the United States, predominantly...


Second hiatus (2002-2004)

In late 2002, Ian Astbury declared the Cult to be "on ice" indefinitely, after performing a brief series of dates in October 2002 to promote the release of the Music Without Fear DVD. During this second hiatus, Astbury performed as a member of the Doors (later dubbed The Doors of the 21st Century, later still renamed D21c, and most recently known as Riders on the Storm) with two of the original members of that group). D21c was sued numerous times, both by Jim Morrison's family and by drummer John Densmore. Astbury also recorded another solo album, which as of 2007, remains unreleased. The Doors (formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, California) were a popular and influential American Hard rock band. ...

Drummer Matt Sorum became a member of Velvet Revolver. In 2003, all of The Cult's records were issued on CD, with several bonus tracks being issued on the Russian, Belarusian, and Lithuanian versions. These eastern European releases had many printing mistakes on the jacket sleeves and lyric inserts.

Second reunion (2005-present)

In 2005, The Cult once again reunited for a world tour in 2006, making their first live appearance in three and a half years on February 2006, on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
