The Cult - in the mid 1980s probably the UK's most vibrant and courageous rock band - were both a product of, and soundtrack to, violently changing times. Formed in Spring 1983, around the songwriting partnership of vocalist Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy, Death Cult sprang from a post-punk crucible that was bubbling wildly. Having recently returned from a six-year emigration to Canada and a disastrous month-long stint in the army, a dispossessed Astbury passed through the punk hot spots of Belfast and Glasgow before settling in Bradford and making a name for himself in The Southern Death Cult, whose ferocious, tribalist Fatman caused a major stir in the UK's hugely influential music press. The pair teamed up and made their plans at Duffy's flat in Coldharbour Mansions in Brixton, South London, an area that, just months earlier, had been the flaming heart of major race riots and was now, unsurprisingly, the spiritual and physical home of Positive Punk. Astbury's simplistic, genuinely earthy lyrics, Duffy's sky-surfing guitar and their thunderous rhythm section made The Cult ideal soundtrackers of their time. The breakthrough was inevitable and came with the blistering singles She Sells Sanctuary and Rain, two tracks still on the airwaves today and both taken from the band's first unarguable artistic success, Love. That album became The Cult's first big triumph, going Top Five in the UK. Its title was aggressive and unashamed, love and ultimate togetherness being the absolute root of Astbury's world-view - something that caused much cynical barracking from the press. Blame Rick Rubin, who helmed Love's follow up Electric and steered them down the rocky road to metal heaven. This best-of collection brings together tracks from the span of their career, and is a worthy testament to their rites of passage. "She Sells Sanctuary" sounds as refreshing as it did in 1985. There are some dubious inclusions from the twilight years of their career, such as "Star" and "Coming Down (Drug Tongue)," but when they have to hold their own alongside "Fire Woman" and "Lil' Devil" it's hardly surprising that they are found wanting.
