The Cult's Love (Omnibus Edition)
Today marks the re-release of The Cult's sweeping, reverb-kissed sonic masterpiece, Love. It's no coincidence that Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy are also in the midst of playing shows of the 1985 album in its entirety, so the record is having new life breathed into it in myriad ways. I saw the NYC stop @ Terminal Five a few weeks ago, and despite other gripes, hearing all those tracks back to back live was quite a treat. Beggar's Banquet is doing things right and including four CD's with this new box set, and nine new remixes and live tracks are available for immediate download after purchasing. (The "She Sells Sanctuary" Slutnostic remix by J.G. Thirlwell is pretty scuzzy, psychedelic and delicious). More info at the Beggar's Archive site!
