GothCast Episode 14: Red Lorry Yellow Lorry

This time on GothCast we discuss a band that many people may have heard of, but most have never taken the time to listen to. Red Lorry Yellow Lorry are a band that are most well known for their album Talk About The Weather, but released a number of albums throughout the eighties and even one in the nineties. Does their work hold up as well as classics like In The Flat Field and Disintegration? That’s what we try to figure out on this episode.

As a note, our news segment this time is dedicated to suggestions for holidays gifts for the spooky person in your life. Hopefully it helps some of you out there who are stumped on what to pick up for the grimly fiendish ones you’ve become acquainted with.

GothCast Episode 13: The Cure Part 3 – 90’s and Early 2000’s

This week’s podcast is our third part in our ongoing discussion about The Cure’s expansive career. This time we take a look at the albums Wish, Wild Mood Swings, Bloodflowers, and The Cure (2004). This was the most difficult episode so far because of the nature of these albums. There is experimentation, critical success and a dramatic changes in the band during this time and it really helped shaped their sound for this era.

I also want to mention that this episode does have a slightly heavier subject for our news segment where we give our thoughts about the Sophie Lancaster murder and its effect on the subculture.

As always, we’d love to hear your feedback and opinions on any of the albums we discuss on this episode and of course, stay spooky.

GothCast Episode 12: Vampire Movies

This week’s episode of GothCast is another movie one, and it is specifically about vampire movies. With all the saturation of Christmas movies that comes right after the Thanksgiving holiday, we felt like everyone could use little vampire lore to lift their spirits. Consequently, we chose to discuss three vampire movies which are very famous in the gothic subculture, and those movies are The Lost Boys, Interview with the Vampire, and Queen of the Damned. Hopefully this gives you a lot to sink your teeth into while listening.

GothCast Episode 11: Type O Negative

This week’s episode of GothCast is centered on the first part of Type O Negative’s career as we discuss their material from Slow, Deep, and Hard to October Rust. The band is one of the more hard to place in the scope of gothic music as many feel their first album is more in line with heavy metal and their experimentation on later releases has led to even more discussion. Listen to find out what we think of The Drab Four’s first four releases.

GothCast Episode 10: The Mission (UK)

In this week’s episode we have a very lively discussion over The Mission (UK)’s career, beginning with Gods Own Medicine and ending with Masque. This is a band that many are somewhat familiar with in the gothic subculture. While their hits like Wasteland and Tower of Strength are widely known, albums like Masque changed their sound dramatically and aren’t as widely discussed as their eighties material. We hope you enjoy this episode, and remember… Stay Spooky!

GothCast Episode 9: The Damned

We know what you’re thinking… “the punk band?” Yes. “The Punk Band.” Actually, if you’re more familiar with this band you might not be thinking that because The Damned actually released some very popular gothic material in the eighties. Not only was it popular, but it was strong work which showed their ability to tackle a variety of styles and sounds with skill. In particular, their album, Phantasmagoria, is a work of art. So yes, we are talking about The Damned this week and we are proud to be doing so. In particular, we will be discussing their work from The Black Album to Anything (which spans their goth years). We hope you enjoy this episode, and if you do be sure to subscribe to the podcast to keep up with our weekly episodes. Stay Spooky!

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.

This week’s episode is another centered around gothic cinema (or at least movies most goths would appreciate.) Sticking with our form of discussing three movies, we decided to choose some movies that we consider to be classics that are not as watched as much as some other movies that have been adopted by the gothic subculture. We decided to review Suspiria, Ed Wood, and Only Lovers Left Alive. We discuss the beauty and value of each of these films, any possible flaws, and their appeal to the gothic subculture.

In this week’s episode of GothCast we take a look at perhaps one of the most influential bands in the deathrock scene, Christian Death. In particular, we discuss the first three albums of their career which feature Rozz Williams as the lead vocalist. In addition, we felt it necessary to talk about the band Super Heroines in reference to Christian Death and their role in the formation of Christian Death.

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 [1984] and end with Disintegration [1989]. 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.
