5.0 out of 5 stars (Southern Death) Cult heroe's, pay you dues! 7 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is an expanded CD of the earlier vinyl release by Beggar’s Banquet of various recordings by Southern Death Cult during their brief but beautiful career, a collection comprising tracks from the band’s 12” single (their only release), their Radio One sessions for John Peel & David Jensen, live tracks from a performance at Rafters and recordings at Manchester Square for EMI and The Playground (remixed). In addition, there is a slightly expanded (though still minimal) booklet complete with extra black and white photos of the band, including 4 appropriately moody shots by Anton Corbijn. It is also an absolutely essential release which, in a just world, would have outsold ‘Thriller’, ‘Brothers In Arms’ and Celine Dion’s entire back catalogue put together. Sadly, and somewhat inexplicably, SDC languish in obscurity, though its members did do quite well later in other bands. The erroneous consensus seems therefore to be that SDC were a training ground for later greatness, nice enough in their way but of no great artistic merit. Dismiss this idea immediately. SDC represents infinitely more than the sum of its parts.
Perhaps the most astounding thing about this release is that, unlike most other ‘compilation albums’, this sounds like a real album - it flows. Southern Death Cult had their own unique sound and, despite the liner notes’ apologies for master tape quality, it is magnificently showcased here. Ian’s voice, both husky and sharp, does not so much follow the beat as wind around the bass-heavy rhythms and staccato guitar wail, while the almost tribal drumming (particularly evident on ‘The Crypt’ and ‘Crow‘) seems to force the music towards its conclusion with a kind of desperate urgency.

5.0 out of 5 stars The cult before The Cult 6 Oct 2013
By Joe
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Sketchy recording quality and lack of cohesion don't matter here, though those would be the major criticisms. This was the early 80s when bands like the Mission, the Sisters and others were creating the new Gothic Punk movement, still angry, embittered, educated and revolutionary. SDC would later split to become the Cult and Into a Circle. The political and spiritual influences of both bands are evident here. Step back a few decades before the rebellion got rebranded.
