summary of how the tour with the cult is: me surrounded by 30 people who are 2-3 times my age ready to rock out to the Cult, nobody knows who Against Me is so I cant mosh it up, (im still dancing up a strom though fk it) and by the end of their set everyone in a 20 foot radius of me comes up to ask me who the band was because they fckn loved it
Butch Vig is a shit producer, he makes for the most antiseptic of listening experiences. Like his crappy band's namesake he is "garbage" har har har. What a fucking joke. If you want a good producer look at the work of J. Robbins, Lou Giordano or Ted Hutt. Hell I'd take fucking Bob Rock over Butch Vig.
But they *aren't* good now. They managed to have an album produced by one of the all time best producers (Butch Vig) and come out with something massively generic. This album was so inventive. Their new stuff is not.
