|15 Essential Goth Albums||5/11/08|
|Right, as a resource for those new to Goth, I decided to start this 15 Goth albums blog. I welcome others to make a list that they think are essential Goth albums. Also, keep it to gothic Post-Punk (Goth Rock, Deathrock, Darkwave), so no Industrial, Metal, Shock Rock or New Wave please (yes, that means no Skinny Puppy, COF, Nightwish, NIN or Depeche Mode).|
In no particular order:
Joy Division - Closer
Bauhaus - In The Flat Field
Siouxsie and the Banshees - Juju
Christian Death - Only Theatre Of Pain
Sisters Of Mercy - First and Last and Always
The Cure - Pornography
Alien Sex Fiend - Who's Been Sleeping In My Brain?
Kommunity FK - The Vision and the Voice
Fields of the Nephilim - Dawnrazor
Cocteau Twins - Garlands
The Birthday Party - Junkyard
Sex Gang Children - Song and Legend
The Southern Death Cult - The Southern Death Cult
Clan Of Xymox - Medusa
Virgin Prunes - ...If I Die, I Die
Yes, my list is old-school biased, but I feel it's important to learn the roots first.

|what this has come to||12/5/06|
|these day the world is no longer about peace.|
its about defence, competing and winning.
thats wot goths used to be best at.
only these days very few REAL goths are around to show their faces and prove to everyone that we can just be as violent as everyone else.
most alternative ppl think and say goth are quiet and kind. true.
some say they are freaky. theyre ment to be but theyre comfatable with it. i can only go so far.
goths are supposed to rule the place without ppl knowing.
we're supposed to stand up for ourselves and others.
we supposed to beat chavs not egnore them.
goths are supposed to be goths.
that no longer happens.
it will soon come bak.
thing is more ppl have turned to the halloween theme.emos, seen kids,moshers and others. some of them go so far they become goth.
they look goth, they listen to goth,they act morbid, not goth.
remember how should recognise ppl these days.

|info on goth history||11/24/06|
|Goths exist from the beginning of the 80's. Gothic and goths have harmonically appeared from the mix of obscure power and aggression of dying post punk ( Joy Division, Virgin Prunes, Siouxsie and the Banshees etc) and aesthetic and energy of nascent new wave At the time when the youth had been full with post punk and there were no alternative to commercial rock and pop, then for all those who had some definite tastes to music and life there was no way to get some other music besides simple one. Then in 1980-81 bands appeared that played quite gloomy music with philosophic- mystic texts (The Sisters of Mercy, The Cure, Depeche Mode, The Mission, Nick Cave, Bauhaus, Fields of the Nephilim, the Cult, etc) and that bands also wore almost exceptionally black color and silver. Every band had its own beginning ? rock, post punk or electro but stylistics were equally gloomy, melancholic, some times energetic, sometimes decadence or depressive. But that was energy. The energy for those who doesn?t like that simple and jolly tinsel of art. They were listened to by people who also started to wear black ( the color became a characteristic feature for goths ) and by those who found their principles of life in that music and who needed the energy of that sorrowful, dreary, depressive music with wicked ironic texts?Unlike the others ? GOTHS TAKE AND HAVE TAKEN THE STRENTH from this very music, which others took as suicidal or too gloomy? At that time papers and magazines (?Melody Maker?, ?New Music Express?, ?Sounds? etc) and society called those bands gothic, the music was called GOTHIC or gothic rock , and those who liked the music and started to live the particular lifestyle- GOTHS.|
