Alien Sex Fiend are an iconic band of both the Deathrock and Batcave scene with a dedicated following. Thus, we felt it was important for us to open a discussion about this band. This week we discuss their emergence from the the Batcave and the release of their first four albums as well as their relevance to Goth and Deathrock subculture. We hope you enjoy this episode (as it may a controversial one) and all of our other content. As always, stay spooky!
Well, the moment you all have been waiting for has arrived… our next episode is finally out! On a more serious note, we do apologize for the delay. We have had a very busy month and have been working on a way to increase our video content in addition to the our regular podcast. There is no reason to worry though, as we are back on track with a game plan that we trust will allow us to create more consistent content and increase your entertainment. Without any further ado, we present this week’s episode in which we discuss none other than Nine Inch Nails. Are we aware that Nine Inch Nails are not exactly a goth band? Certainly! However, we believe it goes without saying that their music has played a large role in the subculture and many goths do listen to Nine Inch Nails. Thus, we begin our exploration of their career with their first three studio albums, (along with what we feel is an essential EP to discuss) Pretty Hate Machine, Broken, Downward Spiral, and The Fragile. We hope you enjoy this episode along with all of our content that is to come. As always, stay spooky!
This week we take a look at a more obscure band, And Also the Trees. Although they do have a following, they are certainly not a band that’s frequently discussed. Consequently, we felt it would be interesting to discuss their career, especially considering their ties to The Cure (something we discuss on the episode). In this episode, we review their first four albums, And Also the Trees, Virus Meadow, The Millpond Years, Farewell to the Shade. We hope you enjoy this episode and, as always, stay spooky.
This time on GothCast we’re taking on the fan-requested Cocteau Twins. While beginning with a sound more aligned with post-punk, they quickly established themselves as talented musicians who preferred to experiment with more ethereal sounds.This is definitely one of the more heated arguments between the hosts as they each argue for their favorite releases.
That’s right! The time has come for a long overdue discussion about Joy Division. While not a gothic band, (their genre lies mostly in post-punk) there is no denying the influence the group had on the emerging goth music scene. We’re probably all familiar with the album Unknown Pleasures, but maybe this episode will shed some light on the other releases that came out before and after that seminal album.
As some of you may have noticed, we didn’t release a new episode last week. Unfortunately, we were just swamped between between the holidays and getting sick so we made the decision to take the week off.
However, we are back in full swing with a brand new episode. We thought it would be a great way to start the new year with another movie episode so this week we review three movies that are currently streaming on Netlfix (At least currently in America), and they are Dark Star: H.R. Giger’s World, Rosemary’s Baby, and The Legend of Hell House. So if you’re looking to add a little darkness to you’re new year, these are some excellent choices whether your looking for an obscure horror film, a classic film, or a new perspective on a great artist you will find something among this list. We hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and enjoy this episode. Stay Spooky!
This week we take a look at Siouxsie and the Banshees’ career through the mid to late eighties, starting with A Kiss in the Dreamhouse and ending with Through the Looking Glass. This is where most people feel the band honed their sound into the distinct Banshees sound that we all know and love. Plenty of hits came from these releases, but do these albums hold up in modern times?
