- The Cult
Just got tickets to see The Cult in October. I was taking a bit of a flyer on it as it's a long time since they did anything really good, but after a bit of reading it turns out they are touring 1985's Love album in it's entirity – this just happens to be one of my top 5 fave albums of all time. Boy, am I excited now.

Hope you enjoy it Chase.
Trailmonkey, I also saw Southern Death Cult at the warehouse in Leeds in 1983, they were my fave band at that time and, of course, a local Bradford band. saw Death Cult at the Beer Keller (or something like that) in Leeds and The Cult at Leeds Uni in 1985 (maybe 86), I think they'd had a minor hit with Sanctuary by that time, because the crowd had gone from about 300 to about 3000, but I think that was before the Love album tour, I'm not sure.Posted 8 years ago
Chase, I'll do you a copy of the Death Cult EPs if your interested in that period, or I'll email them to you?

hav'nt heard the 'love' album apart from sanctuary (got a 12" of it somewhere), but i did/do really like the later 'electric' album.
must go buy them on cd!
Gav, I think She Sells Sanctuary is on the earlier Dreamtime album, that was the tour I saw them on, but the Love album is still worth getting.Posted 8 years agoRoter SternMember
Sounds pretty good – slight change in style though!!
I would say it was more of a return to their old style after trying to be poor imitation of AC/DC. I saw them live also around '85 and they were pretty good I thought at the time. I also saw them at Reading after the Electric album and they were boring. Last year they played about 800 yards from my house open-air supporting the Who. Weird sitting in my garden listening them sound check She Sells Sanctuary.Posted 8 years agoslimtubingMember

Saw them on the eve of my 18th birthday at glasgow barrowlands on their electric tour.would definately go to see Love live.john_drummerMember
I prefer the stuff up to & including Love. Not sure if I'm prepared to pay £35 a ticket though.
I first saw Southern Death Cult in 1982, I was well impressed. Saw Death Cult in their Brothers Grimm phase at Futurama festival in 1983 – again very good.
See if you can find footage from 'Dreamtime Live at The Lyceum' – IA certainly wasn't going through the motions at that gig!Posted 8 years ago
