The Cult

Just wanted to write something about The Cult show at the Fillmore last night.  I was saying on air last week if you were disappointed Oasis didn’t play Terminal 5 you should get your Brit Rock fix from The Cult, and if you were at the show you’ll know I wasn’t wrong.

What a gig.  The Cult have the catelogue to make sure their live show is always good, but they sounded great last night and Ian’s voice was probably the strongest I’ve ever heard him.  If you were unfamiliar with the newer songs go check out Born Into This (their album from last year), the four songs from that merged seamlessly with She Sells Sanctuary, Fire Woman, Sweet Soul Sister etc.

I always admired The Cult, cos being a Brit who desperately wanted to move to America I liked the way they had some hits over here, moved to the States and never looked back – cos if you’re English and you like Rock it IS better here!  The fact they’re still as electric (sorry, couldn’t resist that) in their adopted home 20 years is testament to the fact if you’ve got the songs you’ve got the longevety.
