The Cult are often lumped into the Glam category. I don't really think this band is Glam -- more like hard rock. This isn't to say they are not good, but I must admit their songs are quite repetitive. During the endless speculation about which bands would be playing Rocklahoma, people kept mentioning the Cult. I mean, I think the Cult certainly deserve a spot at Rocklahoma more so than half the bands on the current bill, but the choice still surprises me.
XM The Boneyard program director Kevin Kash must really love the Cult, because that band is on constantly. I swear, I hear a Cult song every day during my lunch break. I don't mind the Cult - but the Glam mistress also likes a little variety in her diet.
I've never seen the band live and I would love to interview lead singer Ian Astbury. Of course, he's notoriously picky, so I am sure no question I asked would be good enough for him. Here are some of my favorite Cult tunes.
Here's "Fire Woman."
Here's "She Sells Sanctuary."
So, are the Cult Glam...or something else?
