“Cult,” from Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary:
5a: a great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement or work (as a film or book).†
For each of these bands, there exists a rabid following somewhere waiting for the next record or a bootleg to turn up. And for every kid who’s ever picked up a guitar, there exists something mysterious in finding a record that connects with this primal urgency to hear something so fresh. So next time you’re browsing the CDs and see something strange, give it a spin, you might uncover something that was never lost. Remember after all – it’s free!
Enjoy: Cult Bands
