Rediscovered track of the month: Aug ’13

The Cult — She Sells Sanctuary

There were two camps at my school: Metalheads and Goths. An uneasy truce existed between the two and rarely did anyone cross from one to the other. Being in the former group it was ill-advised to profess a liking for any of the so-called Goth bands especially out-and-out leaders like this lot who were regulars on our school disco record decks.  However, I always had a fondness for them and especially this track with its beguiling guitar line running all the way through. Can anyone tell me though why Ian Astbury is dressed as a Spanish nobleman of the 18th Century? By the way, there was a third group, the mainstreamers who listened to Simple Minds, Go West, Marillion and other such fare . . . they keep quiet a lot these days but they know who they are.

    Yeh, mainstreamers were listening to The Smiths, The Cure, Paul Young (was he mainstream?), Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and later … Edi Brickell, and watching on film Gregories Girl and later the Brat Pack films like St. Elmo’s Fire, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink and About Last Night (1985 -1986) ….. oh the memories 🙂
