The Cult's Ian Astbury nods to '60s psychedelia combined with modern keyboard-centric twists.

Author & Special Guests

Jason has a pick for our latest episode, and it's an oddball among oddballs. Ian Astbury and The Cult towed the line between goth, hard rock and alternative, and after their break-up, he continued down the road less taken and formed Holy Barbarians. Their lone album, 1996's Cream, stands out with it's nods to '60s psychedelia combined with modern keyboard-centric twists. Our review of the self-titled 1994 Cult album ended with gushing praise, so how does the unofficial follow-up fare? Tune in to find out.
