In 1985, The Cult’s long player Love reached out past their early goth fan base to excited rock fans around the world. Ian Astbury’s vocals and Billy Duffy’s guitar had been reforged to create a big spacious sound of Zep-like proportions. Guns N’ Roses formed that year and certainly took note. But, the likes of ‘Rain’ and ‘She Sells Sanctuary’ were immaculately and inconceivably recorded in leafy Farnham, Surrey – far, far away from la-la land. Have a great weekend.
