25th Anniv of The Cult's "Electric" - 8/11/12 Pittsburgh Forum
Please join us on August 11th at Ironworks (formerly The Hideout in Oakland) as we pay tribute to the 25th anniversary of The Cult’s “Electric”.
In late 2011, three high school pals/bandmates regrouped with the idea to cover an album of a single artist. Their first outing was to tackle Led Zeppelin’s “Physical Graffiti”. The endeavor was achieved with high energy, fond memories, and smiles all around.
Courtesy of Wikipedia:
“After the breakthrough success of their second album, Love, the Cult began working on a follow-up to build on their success. In the summer of 1986, they recorded twelve tracks at the Manor Studio in Oxfordshire. These “Manor Sessions” were overseen by Steve Brown, who had produced Love. The twelve tracks were to be the basis of a new album, tentatively entitled Peace. However, on completion of the recording sessions, the band decided that they were unhappy with the sound, and looked for a new producer.
The band went on to re-record the entire album with producer Rick Rubin, with a slightly different track-list and running order. To that point, Rubin had been producing hip hop artists and thrash metal band Slayer. These new recordings became the album that was released, Electric.”
$5 at the door to be donated to the Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
