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.
Dr.Sanders and Bryan take a look at Peter Murphy’s career after leaving Bauhaus and branching out on his own. This episode covers Dali’s Car, Should the World Fail to Fall Apart, Love Hysteria, Deep, and Holy Smoke. It’s an interesting journey and Holy Smoke does it get good!

Wait…what? A new episode of the GothCast Podcast!? That’s right! I’ve been itching to record an episode for a long time and my friend Bryan has taken on the brave task of being my cohost. The episode ending up being a strange one for a return because The Danse Society are tough to review. Anyway, let me know what you guys think and we’re definitely working on more.

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.
In this episode we continue our review of the The Cure’s career as we discuss the trajectory of their music over the course of the mid to late eighties. We begin by our review with The Top  and end with Disintegration . This half of the decade was a huge critical and commercial success for the band and generated many hits that are still popular on modern radio today. It was also a time where the band was defining their signature sound that many think of when discussing The Cure.
It’s time to talk about the always controversial Sisters Of Mercy. We discuss each of their studio releases from First and Last and Always to Vision Thing and even their compilations albums from the nineties. The Sisters are a band hard to disassociate from front-man Andrew Eldritch and the discussion does delve into his infamous decisions throughout the band’s career. We hope you enjoy this at times very heated discussion.
