Pulp Reunites, Of Course

November 10th, 2010 · 5 Comments

As with any reunion news that surfaces these days, Pulp’s reformation is no great surprise. The only band that would genuinely shock me with a reunion is The Smiths, and that’s only because I know what a grudge-holding drama queen Morrissey is.

Peter Murphy pulls out the cape for Twilight 3 cameo

MP3: Love and Rockets gets its due

July 24th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Love and Rockets were another one of my gateway bands in high school that opened up a whole new world of music to me. The band’s fluke Top 40 hit, “So Alive”, represents very little in terms of the breadth of its myriad musical styles. Despite being 3/4’s of the legendary art-punk pioneers, Bauhaus, Love […]

RETRO: Kommunity FK “Something Inside Me Has Died” video

April 7th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I was just reminded of this song by Kommunity FK because a friend sent me a completely arbitrary list of the 30 Best Goth Records of all time, and I lamented this song’s omission. In high school my tastes often veered towards the darker side: Sisters of Mercy, Southern Death Cult, Bauhaus, etc., and Kommunity […]
