The Cult Frontman Wants Every Show To Be Unique

(Classic Rock) The Cult frontman Ian Astbury says he wouldn't want to perform the band's songs exactly as they appear on record, even if they could. Instead, he insists their performances are all about creating a one-off experience. And those fans who'd rather not share that would be better off not attending.

Discussing the chance of fans hearing songs precisely as they were laid down in the studio, Astbury says: "I doubt that will ever happen all the ad libs were spontaneous in the recordings."

"We are not that kind of band who strive for note perfection we go for feeling," He continues. "We thrive in the chaos, beauty and disorder of the moment. We are not machines; that's not why we started performing. Sometimes we can be crass, base and vulgar. Other moments can be beatific and transcendent.

"So if you're coming expecting to hear a note-for-note rendition of a recording, save your money, stay at home and listen to the albums." more on this story
