We're almost to the point where we can forgive the Cult
's Ian Astbury for resurrecting Jim Morrison's dead, bloated spirit for what pretty much amounted to a discordant Doors cover band with a couple of surviving band members a few years ago. Astbury's now reunited with Cult co-founder and guitarist Billy Duffy for a tour of shaman-sprinkled cock rock ("Love Removal Machine" still
revs our motors). They haven't spoken in four years, which oughta lessen the amount of onstage banter. That's good news for audiences, which will be treated to a greatest-hits show, since there's no new material to plug.
