- The Cult leader: singer Ian Astbury, who channels the moody mysticism and raw vocalizations of Jim Morrison so well that he actually fronted The Doors during their 21st Century tour
- The followers: a mass of fans with tastes as diverse as The Cult’s sound
- The sound: a seamless blend of goth-tinged post-punk (“She Sells Sanctuary”), topped with the heavy-metal thunder and Zeppelin-like feats of Billy Duffy’s guitar (“Fire Woman”)
- Proof of Ian Astuby’s stage charisma: The Cult recently landed on Rolling Stone’s list of the 20 Best Things at Coachella’s Second Weekend with a performance so commanding, they were crowned “Best Messiahs”
- What Bobby Gillespie was doing when he founded Primal Scream: drumming for the Jesus and Mary Chain
- Similarities between the sounds of the two bands: they both use drums. Other than that, not many.
- The Primal Scream sound: jittery pop, ’70s rock, dance-rock fusion, techno, bluesy Stones-esque rockers—take your pick
- “Trainspotting”: their contribution to the film Trainspotting
- Check out: Screamadelica, the 1991 album that, according to AllMusic.com, “brought acid house, techno, and rave culture crashing into the British mainstream—an impact that rivaled that of Nirvana’s Nevermind”
