The Cult

British hard rockers the Cult began life as a swirly, gothy hippie-punk hybrid, playing “whoa, dude!” anthems like the tongue-twister “She Sells Sanctuary.” Then they met barefooted producer extraordinaire Rick Rubin, who turned them into riff-minded hard rockers who weren’t afraid to cover Steppenwolf. The LP they recorded together, Electric, broke the band out of their cult audience and eventually went platinum, thanks to singles like the overly trippy “Love Removal Machine” and “Lil’ Devil.” Tonight, they play every Keith Richards—worshiping riff that album had to offer.
