guns n bombs + the cult.


californian love machines guns n bombs (not pictured above) are back with another killing production, this time it's a remix for the (so people say) legendary rock band the cult (pictured above). i have never actually heard them, so i've got no idea what they sound like but judging by their looks and artworks it must be something in between europe (hair metal) and iron maiden (screaming and grunting). whatever, i am sure they are great.

back to topic: just like they always do, guns n bombs deliver high quality and turn 'sound of destruction' into a smashing floorfiller. from what i can see the track has been posted before but this is the dub version without epic hair metal vocals and all screaming and grunting removed. and according to guns n bombs, the dub is the one and only version they want on the blogs, so here you go:

the cult - sound of destruction (guns n bombs dub mix)

and for the light-hearted among our beloved readers, here is a great disco mix guns n bombs did in anticipation of their show with hercules and love affair. enjoy nearly 45 minutes of solid disco gold:

guns n bombs - disco night at the big horse

i'll see if i can get the tracklist for all of us later but for now i'll head out and get lost in the streets of berlin while you go and add guns n bombs on myspace. be prepared for more big things to come from them real soon!

Go listen to 'she sells sanctuary' for some classic The Cult. Mandatory listening.

i'm not sure if i'm really feeling the GnB remix, mediocre compared to their other productions.

it's all starting to sound the same.

PLEASE LISTEN TO THE CULT BEFORE POSTING AND SAYING I'VE NEVER LISTENED TO THE CULT. THAT'S ABSURD.

EDIT THE POST OR SOMETHING, DON'T BE LAZY.

And Southern Death Cult is dope. If anyone has any of the tracks Johnny Marr did with Ian, holla at me, been looking for that for a long time...

morgan louis: it wasn't because i am lazy - just because i wanted to post it and had to go out, all at once!

but now i am actually too lazy to check them out and edit the post. i've got a great idea though: maybe you can help me.

and i am glad everyone noticed that this post was a discodust all-time-low regarding valuable background information!

i saw cult play the cne in toronto back in 1987. some band named guns 'n' roses opened up for them...

the cult were ones of the few bands back in the 80's that had hugely diverse fans - the rockers, punks, new wavers, jocks, goths all loved them.

i think we need to see some more tracks of theirs get the remix treatment.
