Wanted: sellers for merch tables @ bookreleaseparty Berlin
For the bookreleaseparty in Berlin (come september) I will organise some merch tables that are for rent. If you have something to sell (art, music, clothing, etc) that is related to new wave/postpunk and old skool goth please email us: email@example.com
It is possible to pre-order the book (out in August) for 50$ at the Chicago press site. Not possible to pre-order? - no worries, I’ll make sure the book will come your way wherever you are located. Soon an update on the UK and EU prices.
hi! I'm quite interested in the fashions from the 80s and I'd like to ask: what's the difference between goth and post-punk, fashion-wise specifically? I've got a vague idea myself, but I'd like to ask someone who knows way more than I do.
I’d say that goth is a darker and more dramatic version of postpunk since the people that dressed like it started to focus on black and developed specific taste for certain fabrics or themed jewelry.
Haha, that trad goth facebookpage has blocked me because I commented below the photos ‘seems most pics are from a good source called nowthisisgoth tumblr”. It seems a bit useless to upload the same photo there as I posted it on here a few days back imo. Ahh, how internet works…
As you might know I made a book about ’80s postpunk/wave/goth which is very likely to be released come summer (2014). It is a bit early to think of, buuut I’d like to brainstorm on the Berlin releaseparty already. Don’t expect something mega, but something small and hopefully cool :)
— > What or who would you love to see at this party and what kind of things have you always missed in goth parties that we should do? Message me or reblog.
AWESOME BLOG! I'm going to ask you something and you can choose not to answer, ok? I was wondering which bands goth/dark alt/goth related/idk you think are underrated and which bands do you think are overrated. Again, awesome blog, you sound like a nice person to be around with.
The most underrated: Clan of Xymox ’Medusa’ (1986), Propaganda ‘A Secret Wish’ (1985), Paraf ’Zastave’ (1984), Guardin Bird, Shark Taboo, Euroshima, Kirlian Camera (some early stuff), Forward Music Quintet, Angel of the Odd, Big Country, Variété, Brotherhood of Pagans. Overrated? Well, most of the standard bands in the scene are honestly kind of annoying.
Not very vain type of person - I’d fail running a personal blog too. Generally, I will only post a picture when I have a good reason to, probably like promo stuff when I am in a band or something or maybe for the book.
