I was driving around Edinburgh tonight, doing various tasks for 17 Seconds Records. The soundtrack was The Cult’s Electric, which I feel has dated rather badly. Who advised them that a cover of ‘Born To Be Wild’ was a good idea?
Even more so when compared to this track of theirs from 1984, from their first album as the Cult, Dreamtime; sheer class.
On balance I think The Cult were better when drawing on their goth roots and less good when trying to be Led Zep.
