The Cult - Love Removal Machine


The Cult - Love Removal Machine - Meaning of the song


The Cult frontman, Ian Astbury says:


"It was like getting on your favorite motorcycle," adding: "I could sing about anything. That's just what came to me. Just the phrase came to mind. That's what it felt like, a love removal machine."

Astbury mentions that AC/DC had a huge influence on this track:

"We had Back in Black playing in the studio, as Rick [Rubin, producer] was listening to it every day. He was obsessed with it, no doubt. AC/DC definitely had an influence on that record. But 'Love Removal Machine' was that AC/DC influence where you're getting down to things in their very elemental form, instead of waxing lyrical and getting prosaic."

Fell to the red room because she was there, uh-huh-huh-huh

A scarlet woman, she got me in fear, yeah, yeah, yeah

She said, do all those things that you do to me

You know what I mean, boy

Do all those things that you do to me, yeah
