The Cult rose to fame from the streets of London to become one of rock’s biggest attractions of the mid-80’s and 90’s. Critically acclaimed records and radio hits such as “She Sells Sanctuary,” “Wild Flower,” “Love Removal Machine,” “Edie” and “Fire Woman” propelled the band to arena status.
Formed in the UK in 1983, the band initially performed under the name Death Cult, which was an evolution of the name of lead singer Ian Astbury’s previous band Southern Death Cult.
