Lost and found: The Cult's 'Wild Flower'
It's hard to think of a band that straddled the line of alternative and hard rock more than The Cult. Early songs like She Sells Sanctuary are stone cold alternative classics, but in 1987, The Cult embraced their hard side with the aptly named album Electric that features the sweet smelling rocker Wild Flower.
The Cult has had many different lineups but the constants are vocalist Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy. Much of the success of the Electric album is credited towards Rick Rubin's production efforts in making a hard rock album that is very danceable.
Reports indicate The Cult is back in the studio working towards a 2014 album release.
