An Exploration of Goth and Goth Adjacent Cultural Artifacts from an Irreverent Reverend

Leaving the ’80s: New Music Coming Soon

It’s no secret that I get stuck in the ’80s.

I’m always living in the ’80s…in my heart.

Clearly, that’s not new music. (Listen carefully and you can figure out which Nirvana song took the riff from this song).

Post-Punk and Goth music and subculture emerged in the late 1970s and the 80s. Popular, and dare I say, important music and bands came from this era: Bauhaus, Depeche Mode, the Cure, Siouxie and the Banshees…so often contemporary goths return to these songs and bands. They mean so much to us. Frankly, it kept a lot of us alive.

Siouxie Sioux being interfaith. Appropriate for this blog.

However, there is new music out there. I must admit, I don’t know a lot about the new stuff… but I intend to find out!

I will start sharing some of the new stuff every other week. This will keep me accountable to explore new stuff, support current bands that deserve some love, and maybe not be too stuck in the ’80s.

You can join me and tell me what you think of these newer bands. Who do you think I should start with? Let me know!
