One of the most popular album associated with goth music, a pinnacle of effects laden sad music, a collection of Robert Smith’s tear-drenched jingles resulting from a midlife crisis…well maybe something like that.
Did you know I first started reviewing The Cure’s albums in 2015? I can’t believe it’s been almost 5 years. I think outside of the podcast I’ve covered a total of 2 (Three Imaginary Boys & 17 Seconds), but I’ve done different books and other topics relating to the band. I’m always hesitant to cover their albums because it’s such a popular topic and they mean so much to fans.
What a great album! I have wanted to cover a Type O Negative album for a looonnngg time, but it is very difficult to objectively review albums from your favorite band. I actually learned a few new things while doing research. One thing I din’t mention in this video is the Bloody Kisses demos. The demo for We Hate Everyone is AMAZING! I actually like it more than the album version.
I really don’t know how I keep making almost 20 minutes long. I seriously thought this was going to be about 6 minutes long. I had some personal stuff going on so this took a bit longer to get out. Sweeney Deville was great to work with and you should check out his videos and music. We actually didn’t talk that much behind the scenes, it just kinda worked out.
Looks like it’s after midnight and we just happen to be in London for this episode. So let’s take a look at the first album from London After Midnight and see if it’s romance has successfully held my heart close after all these years. (and no, I wasn’t actually in London when I filmed this episode)
This week we discuss the ever influential Siouxsie and the Banshees. In particular, we review their first four albums, beginning with The Scream and ending Juju. Aside, from being an extremely popular and beloved band associated with the gothic subculture, Siouxsie and the Banshees are personal favorites of ours and we wanted to start from the beginning as many fans may not be familiar with their early work.
