No, not that Nirvana. Before Kurt Cobain, there was Ian Astbury. Before "hair bands" there was Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy (a fabulous guitarist who doesn't get enough credit or attention in my opinion).

The Cult/ Southern Death Cult / Death Cult has gone through as many musical styles transformations as the change in name might suggest. They started out as post- punk, then took on a more Led Zeppelin style, and then a more hard rock sound. It's all good, in very different ways.

Mr. IMo? and Ian also happen to be related, though I've never met him, so he holds an extra special place in our musical hearts.

Today's song comes from my favorite album, LOVE.

"Nirvana" - The Cult
