Rolling Stone Notes/Review
Following an August 23rd gig at New Jersey's Meadowlands, the Cult's Ian Astbury, Jamie Martin and Matt Sorum met up with Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin at a New York metal lounge called the Scrap Bar at 4:00 a.m. (The Gunns had opened for the Cult on its 1987 tour.) From there, they went to a loft and jammed till eight in the morning. The set list included Aerosmith's "Mama Kin," Led Zeppelin's "Rock & Roll," the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction" and Black Sabbath's "Paranoide," along with some blues.
In April, the Cult released its thirs album, Sonic Temple which received positive reviews, although one critic referred to the album as "the funniest parody record I've heard since Spinal Tap."
