Ian Robert Astbury is an English rock musician and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist for the rock band The Cult. In 1979, while living in Glasgow, he was deeply struck by The Doors song The End, which he heard while watching the movie Apocalypse Now, later describing this as a religious experience. In 1980 he was in Liverpool, where he was active on the punk scene based around Erics Club. After he was made homeless due to a dispute with a landlord over a party at his bedsit apartment, he ended up following Anarchist Punk band Crass. After a period of living in squats and sleeping rough, he moved to Bradford in late 1980. Here he was a founding member of the positive punk band Southern Death Cult in 1981. Southern Death Cult lasted until March 1983, when it was dissolved. Along with guitarist Billy Duffy, bassist Jamie Stewart and drummer Raymond Taylor Smith, Astbury formed a new band, Death Cult, released The Death Cult EP and later dropped Death from the name to become The Cult.
