The Cult: Behind the Music #168

Season 1 Ep 1681/20/2002

All the city of Bradford had to its credit was curry houses and the Industrial Revolution. Then the Cult came along. Made tough by the North of EnglandÍs piss-stained punk clubs, Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy migrated to the glittering lights of Los Angeles to record with Rick Rubin. The result? Some of the hardest rocking anthems ever. But could they survive fame, drugs, and AstburyÍs obsession with the American Indian.
