The Cult- Electric- Billy Duffy

It was the latter-Eighties, and rolling the streets of Dallas/Ft.Worth at night felt less like a big-block muscle car and just right in a fire-engine red BMW M3, moonroof open, with The Cult Love  cassette alternatelyly jammed in the dash player blasting “She Sells Sanctuary”and “Rain” with the follow up in April 1987, Electric, slamming “Love Removal Machine”,”Wild Flower”, and “Lil Devil”. Hard to believe it was over thirty-five years ago. Even harder to believe that The Cult recorded the complete album, which we now know as Electric, twice.

This Billy Duffy 1987 interview concludes with the hypnotic, tense, dynamic “Elemental Light” from the strong 2012 comeback  Choice of Weapon . And it is all dedicated to the late Jerry Barrett who, as the Reprise Records Southwest Promotion person for the Cult’s US label, believed in this band more than anybody I know. -Redbeard
