The very first incarnation from the goth punks and afterwards metal heroes referred to as the Cult, Southern Loss of life Cult formed in later 1982 near Leeds. Led by Ian Lindsay (afterwards Astbury), and including guitarist David Burrows, bassist Barry Jepson, and drummer Haq Quereshi, the group became a huge name in goth rock and roll early within their lifestyle, and released their initial one Moya/Fatman in Dec 1982. Early the next year, Southern Loss of life Cult toured with Bauhaus — on what ended up being the goth kings’ farewell tour — but abruptly disbanded. Astbury shifted to Loss of life Cult (and afterwards, the Cult) while Burrows, Jepson, and Quereshi became Obtaining the Dread (afterwards Into a Group). Beggars Banquet put together several periods and outtakes onto a self-titled record, that was released in 1983 and lastly issued within the U.S. nearly 15 years afterwards.
