This time Dr. Sanders takes a look at one of the most well known albums that helped influence and shape the sound of the emerging goth rock scene- Unknown Pleasures. Plus….those wavy lines…. Anyhow, we hope you enjoy this video and all of our other content. As always, stay spooky!
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.
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 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.
