Formed in 1979, Pomona, Ca. as a punk band by Rozz Williams. Rik Agnew replaced Jay early on. Visually a combination of cross-dressing, drugs and satanism. After releasing one album, Rozz lost interest in the band and a new line-up, based on local band Pompeii 99 arose. Years later Rozz formed a new Christian Death, with both bands touring at the same time.
Founded on punk lines in 1979 in Pomona, CA, USA by Rozz Williams (Roger Painter) who died on 01.04.1998 with original line-up of James McCarthy (bass), Jay (guitar), George Belanger (drums). Rik Agnew replaced Jay in 1981? First album in 1982, in 1983 they either 'relocated' to Europe or run out of money to get home after touring. From 1984 onwards the band began going through a series of line-up changes, many of whom had been in another local band, Pompeii 99. Either way Gitane Demone stays in the Netherlands for 8 years. Has featured William Faith. Early to mid 80's featured Todd Williams who was also drummer on Rozz Williams European Tour 1994, and has worked with Gitane Demone.
A week before the 1998 European tour Steve the drummer attempted suicide while Flick was in jail for narcotics offences and sex with under-aged girls. Bishop of Hildesheim (Germany) ensured social authorities were at every show (so Yåål, 5-year-old keyboard player, junior lead vocalist, couldn't perform). Quintet at this point. Fernando was on drums, Wym was on guitar. Rafael Garcia Hernandez mixed Pornographic Messiah in Mexico. Played bass since school in Holland, met Kota (bass player of Christian Death) in London. When he couldn't come to England anymore she replaced him. Maitri likes opera, classical, rock, metal, etcetera but not rap. Have recently used ambient synths/samples, tribal drums, techno-industrial, disco-industrial, industrial-hardcore, avant-garde ambient, classical influences, choral, death rock, gothic metal.

Alternative rock, popular with Goths.
Ideas of spirituality, reality and self-analysis.
Inspired by the Cocteau Twins, Riou and Simpson decided to use drum machines and synths. The Claytown played the Marquee, Astoria and the Town & Country Club and supported The Cult on the 'Sonic Temple' tour, Pearl Jam, The Wonder Stuff, The Damned, Julian Cope, The Godfathers and the Mission. The band left EMI, then split up after three members left, forming another band. Riou and Williams have re-formed the band.
Riou claimed in a 2004-10-28 interview that a famous local clairvoyant advised him to form a band called the Clayton Troop.
Riou used to follow The Ruts, Theatre of Hate and the Killing Joke. A similar following sprung up around Claytown Troupe. Ben used to play songs in a cage at 'The Bastille' - a Bristol cellar club modelled after 'The Batcave'. Sharp's late 1990s band Altastate featured members of Skin (Skunk Anansie)'s backing band.

Active (again). Formerly Southern Death Cult, then Death Cult and latterly just 'Cult', originally formed in the late 1970's in Cheshire, with early Native American influences. Billy Duffy (from Manchester) joined while in the Death Cult phase. Astbury and Duffy had disagreements around 1985, Astbury spent all his time in hotel rooms with his girlfriends while the rest of the band overproduced the album, before it was ditched by ex-Beastie Boys producer Rick Rubin. During their 18-month tour, starting in 1987, Astbury began to drink too much, and trash hotel rooms. American Sorum joined at about this time, but, along with Stewart quit at the end of the Sonic Temple tour in 1990.
Sorum played with the Cult, then Y Kant Tori Read (1988?), later playing with Guns n Roses for the Use Your Illusion tour, before returning to the Cult.
The new Cult consists of Astbury, Duffy and Sorum, with Billy Morrison on bass.
