This week, we decided to change gears a little bit and do a film review episode. There is no denying that cinema has played a massively influential role in gothic music, fashion, and the entire subculture. Subsequently, we wanted to pay respect to three of our favorite films associated with gothic subculture. In this particular episode we take a look at Blade Runner , The Crow , and Let the Right One . This is probably one of the only episodes where Dr Sanders and I (Robbie Gore) don’t completely disagree on everything.
We just posted a new video to Youtube. In this video we give some general updates about the content that will be coming in October and we just wanted to give you guys a chance to get to know who we are. Again, if you enjoyed this and our other videos be sure to subscribe to our Youtube channel GothCast Video.
In this week’s episode of GothCast, we discuss the career of one of Gothic Rock’s most influential artists, Bauhaus. One of the first band’s associated with the term “gothic rock”, Bauhaus took their music into a much darker direction than most bands of the time. Their debut album In The Flat Field is still considered a classic, does the same hold true for their other releases? In this episode we take a look at each of their studio albums, live releases, and of course the single Bela Lugosi’s Dead.
Here at GothCast we are excited to bring some unexpected news. It has been some time since any members of Bauhaus have made any appearances in the media. However, as long-time fans of Bauhaus, we are excited to announce that Lethal Amounts will be hosting a Halloween party on October 30th which will be DJ’d by none other than Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins. The event will take place at the Monty Bar in Los Angeles. You can count on us being there and we hope to see you as well. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity. Details can be found here:
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.
