From The Desk Of The Cult’s Ian Astbury: Michelle Peerali

Ian Astbury is so much funnier than we imagined. The Cult, his mighty metal-crunching band with guitarist Billy Duffy, has just released Choice Of Weapon (Cooking Vinyl), the newest and best Cult album since 1994’s The Cult. In our Q&A with him, Astbury takes down those who make themselves authoritarian without merit—music journalists, politicians—in a fashion similar to his highly personal lyrical outlook on Weapon. He is guest editing magnetmagazinecom all week with the same candor.

Astbury: She‘s the director of the Cult’s first video/film clip, “For The Animals,” from our latest album. I jumped at the opportunity to work with her after I saw a clip she made of the Kills. She has fresh eyes. A female director of great strength and dangerous youth.

Another video after the jump.
