Saw the Cult last night at the poolside venue at Lauberge Lake Charles. They sounded great. Focus ed heavily on "Electric" era stuff plus the hits(minus fire woman and edie). It was all rockers, with only one slower tune, but it was a smoldering scorcher. Astbury and Duffy we're both in top form.

One of the most underrated bands of all time, IMO.

Tickets were only 15 bucks. So I bought five and had no problems finding people who wanted them. They played for a little over 2 hours.

Like Astbury's voice, but I've heard him sing as a guest star with others (Iommi, Slash, etc.) more than with The Cult.  Can't say I'm all that familiar with The Cult, but I'm pretty sure I'd like them if I made an effort to track down some of their stuff.

I'm assuming they played "She Sells Sanctuary" as it's their best song. I liked them a ton in the '80's and that song is one of my favorite riffs. I think the actual song lyrics of Asbury are weak in general but he's got a voice that fits the band.

Yeah, they played that and rain off of the love album. Played Sweet Soul Sister and Sun King from Sonic Temple, I think all of Electric (most of it at leaet) and a few newer songs I'm not familiar with. Left out edie, as it wouldn't have fit the hard rocking set, and fire woman, which I guess they're just tired of.

If they hadn't played She Sells Sanctuary I'd have demanded a refund. That's like when I saw Clapton in 1995 and all he played were his "From The Cradle" Blues covers. I wanted to hear Badge in the worst way. Felt ripped.

Yeah, I imagine some were disappointed that they omitted fire woman, and my friend specifically wanted to hear Edie, but I wanted as much electric as they could bring, plus She Sells Sanctuary, so I was quite pleased. That was basically as good a set as they could have played, for my taste. Maybe some more from Love, but I was well pleased, particularly for 15 dollar tickets. At that price, I was scared they'd pull the shit Gregg Allman did where he played for little over half an hour and split, no encore, but they gave a solid 2 hour set.

When did Allman do that? Recently or years ago?

Around 97 or so. Teenage phenom Derek Truck's played a great first set, so it wasn't a total bust of a concert, and my hot friend got to do blow backstage with Gregg. He actually dedicated the song "Melissa" to her. So it was a memorable show. But he played 5 or 6 songs and jetted.

He played the Roxy Theatre in Buckhead (ATL, literally a 5 minute walk from where I lived at the time) in 95 and I missed the show but he was great, per my friends. He also invited the hot girl backstage that was with my buddy that night. Sounds like a routine.

I saw Derek Trucks in either the summer of 1994 or 1995 play at "The Masquerade" (ATL) while I was visiting before I moved here on the lawn in back when he was probably 13 years old. I remember thinking "this kid's going somewhere".

If you decide to, I'd start with Sonic Temple first.  That record rocks and is full of gems like Sun King, Edie, Sweet Soul Sister, and Fire Woman.

OK thanks, I'll pick it up from the library this week.

That was their biggest hit, but the prior album, Electric, was a breakthrough for them. It is my favorite album from them. Rick Rubin produced it, and it's much more raw and sparce than the others. The one before that, Love, is really good, too, but with a post punk, new wave influence. Electric is straight acdc style rock. Sonic Temple is a combination of both, a little more on the rock side. Bob Rock produced it, so where electric is raw and purposely underproduced, sonic Temple is slick and glossy.

Electric was/is a great album indeed.
