High Octane Cult (compilation) (1996)High Octane Cult1996. Vocalist Ian Astbury referred to the record as "very personal, and very revealing" songs about his life, with the subject matter ranging from sexual abuse at the age of 15, to the death of Nigel Preston (friend and former drummer for The Cult), to his directionless years spent in Glasgow in the late 1970s. But the record was barely noticed, only reaching US and UK and then quickly dropping out of sight. Reportedly it reached number one on the charts in Portugal, but quickly dropped out of sight as well.
High Octane Cult wisely focuses on the band's better years, from the release of Love in 1985 to Sonic Temple in 1989, including hits like "Fire Woman" and "She Sells Sanctuary. The fact that the latter turned up in a car commercial both indicates the Cult's position in the pop-metal pantheon and serves as a depressing reminder of the fate of much guitar-oriented rock.
