Death Rock

Southern Death Cult
Vintage Live Footage
Now Showing!

The year was 1983, and one of my favorite bands was Southern Death Cult/Death Cult – they represented where my spirit was at that in that space & time. The lines between positive punk & peace punk were almost non-existent; we were all one tribe. Southern Death Cult waved the banner of self expression for all of us dark-minded outsiders. On the lyrical side of things, they were not too far off from Crass or Flux of Pink Indians. Musically, this band pushed their sound to spheres where punk was not going in 1983. One thing that the band was known for was their mesmerizing live shows. It’s been said that Ian Ashbury would almost have out of body experiences while performing; this might be truth or fiction. Southern Death Cult did give 200% while performing, and would always bring the house down. CVLT Nation has gathered some of our favorite live footage of this rad band for your enjoyment. So after the jump, go back in time & check out Southern Death Cult live, plus some vintage flicks.
