Well I have been 3 pages back and cannot find a similar thread so here goes. After the demise of Punk and New Wave music an altogether different kind
of rock music started to emerge in the UK. Like it or loathe it I think you will agree that there were some great bands and great songs, here are some
of my favourites from early to mid 80's which I think, given the chance, some of our younger ATS rock fans may not be familiar with but will truly
Hope you teens and twenty somethings like this stuff......
As Theatrical and Loud as ever.........This is......... THE CULT
Once me and my husband discovered Goth we never went back .... and we're in our 50's now. It's been sometime now that we found it...one of our
fav's is Type O Negative (RIPeter Steele). When we were in our 20's (way back in the 80's) we were pretty well isolated from the newer sounds
then such as Punk, Metal, and what would become Goth, because of our location. These genres came out of urban areas like London, New York, and finally
L.A. Took us awhile but we found it!! LOL! Now our new fav is Cradle of Filth. Salute to the pioneers like the Cult and Souxie! Thanks for the thread
and thanx for sharing! Starred and flagged!
Loved Siouxsie since back in the day, seen them live a few times.
The Cult were an awesome band and saw them in '89 and they were brilliant, they played 'Rain', 'Revolution' then 'She Sell's Sanctuary' back
to back, a truly spine chilling and hair raising experience.
Nice to meet a true goth on here, I am glad you and your man got so much pleasure from the movement. Maybe you can embed one of your favourites for us
all to enjoy
I loved Spear and that SOM track brought great memories flooding back..... Sadly I never saw either live
I am surprised nobody commented on The Kiss as I remember buying the album back in the day and rushing home to play it and when I heard it and kranked
it up, I thought WTF is this??.... If ever there was a tune that left me speechless, "The Kiss" was it..... Never saw them live either... What was I
thinking of?? (note to self: less fishing... more gigs)
Anyone remember this?

I was wondering when there was going to be a goth music thread. *drag of cig* And I'm glad to see people in here posting actual goth songs, instead
of that crap people think is goth now..*tosses hair*...but anyway thought I would add to the mix (life is pain)..
