theres only one thing Im listening to at the mo, “and you know what Im talkin about…”Since getting it in the post this morning, Im not letting it out of my stereo!
But before today it was Lightening Bolt, shipping news, keelhaul and suno)))
Not listening to any particular album. Doing mst of my listening at work, with my MP3 player, so I just plop on entire artisit and let is shuffle. SO here’s the bands I’m listening to at the moment
Strung Out (especially Live in a Dive)
Ten Foot Pole/Pulley mix
Fugazi (ordered all of their Bootlegs from the Bass Player, some brilliant stuff there even if the recordings are a little raw).
I recently (re-)discovered The Mission and Sisters of Mercy. Especially Tower of strength by The Mission is fanfuckingtastic! I like this music now much more than I did 20 years ago. Wisdom does come with age ;)
I could never get my head round all that “whoa is me ” stuff.
I couldn’t either. I’m not a goth, although I quite like the way goths dress and ‘gothic’ art (and off course clasic gothic ghost stories e.g. Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Edgar A Poe’s stories). Anyway, I think The Mission is great, but I’m not waiting for a Sisters of Mercy comeback either.
Most goths over the age of sixteen don’t go around feeling sorry for themselves or being really miserable all the time. A lot of goth bands often have their tongues firmly in cheek - the Sisters and Bauhaus especially.

Everything The Mission did after that was crap. I got into them with their version of Neil Young’s Like A Hurricane.
But then having seen sisters and mission within a week I had to go for Sisters as Wayne Hussey had turned into a boring hippie by then.
I’ve also seen Fields Of The Nephilim once supporting New Model Army. They were so pretentious. Their fans used to put flour on their leather coats to make it look like desert sand. Ridiculous.
Bauhaus are great (you have to love ‘em when you love David Bowie). I’d also label them New Wave ‘coz they were too early to be called Goths.
Well, I think the TGerman goth scene may be even bigger than the English.
And as Bauhaus named themselves after a German art style, I just felt free to utter my opinion.
And I just love to pretend to be a whippersnapper. :)
