IAN ASTBURY, JAMIE STEWART (bass) and MATT SORUM (drums) of THE CULT joined forces with old friends AXL ROSE and IZZY STRADLIN of GUNS N' ROSES for a jam session In New York last week.

The supergroup style mega-jam took place at a private rehearsal room called The Loft In Manhattan after the two groups had met earlier in the night at The Scrapbar.

Ian Astbury told NME: "We jammed for what seemed like seven hours, everyone was changing instruments, but Jamie and Matt played throughout. We did mostly Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and Sex Pistols songs."

The set, which was performed in front of just 30 or so fans and followers, also included covers of Roiling Stones and Alice Cooper songs.

The Cult were In town as part of their enormous three month support to METALLICA, which has taken them 29,000 miles around the States. They've been playing to up to 20,000 people a night.

Axl and lzzy were in New York taking a break from Guns N' Roses' heavy tour rehearsals In Chicago.

An outspoken Interview with Axl appears in next week's NME.

The two bands first met two years ago when Astbury saw Guns N' Roses playing at the Marquee Club in London. He invited them to support The Cult on their American tour to promote the Rick Rubin produced 'Electric' LP.

At the time no-one would touch Axl's band Stateside because of their problems with the LA Police. The support was Guns 'N' Roses first national tour of their own country.

The Cult's British tour, their first for two years, follows the release of their album 'Sonic Temple'. They play Birmingham NEC (November 15), Manchester Apollo (17), Whitley Bay Ice Rink (18), Livingston Forum (21) and London Wembley Arena (24). Tickets are on sale now, priced £9 at all venues, with 110 tickets available in Birmingham, Manchester and London. Tickets for Whitley Bay are available from Newcastle City Hall. The Cult will continue to support Metallica until the end of August, they will then break before playing as special guests of AEROSMITH In Europe in October.
