    I must get my mate to download a track for you, Retro (from vinyl to CD) ,as I am a Luddite and a dullard and get it up to you. Totally demento!

  • I do like a touch of the macabre, I must say. But Goth as a subculture never appealed. They take themselves too seriously.

    The closest I got to goth was in the 80s when I got heavily into garage rock/60s punk etc and bands like the Cramps and the Gun Club. Used to wear tight black jeans and pointed boots with psychedelic shirts and stuff but the look was more 60s.

    • I think your taking it to seriously...LOL. 

  • It was a full moon last night. i was at a Psych' Fest' and bugger me...i turned into a Werewolf!!

  • It was all that eye liner in the 80's lol

  • This has brought out the inner goth in me (mod/goth - a moth?!?) Used to love Halloween. I dressed up as a human fly once, and a hanged, drawn, and quartered man another year (with johhnies stuffed with cottonwool soaked in red gunk and covered with glycerine hanging out of my belly as intestines).

    • Aha you remind me of two Mod friend's in Manchester who wear a lot of black.

      "We are the Moth's, We are the Moth's, we are, we are, we are the Moth's" 

    • Believe me, I'm not a goth! I think that was the most spammy movement ever - Bela Lugosi is dead undead undead undead what a load of bollocks!! I was up in Whitby once. Saw all these phalloids walking around dressed up like Dracula - like from the 90s film. They were all trying to look like Gary Numan or whatever he was called. Twits.
