I was really into industrial back in the day so 1/2 the bands crossed into the Goth area. One of my favorite shows was Skinny Puppy, Halloween 1988. Opening act was NIN, no one knew who they were and they didn't get the warmest reception considering they were a little too "dancey" at the time. @ one time wasn't Depeche Mode borderline Goth?

You all should go back and look at my pic in the embarassing photo thread just for fun...

Yes, I still have my cape in my closet.

Even better, my mom made it for me!!!

About 4 months ago, I got an email from the Damned's drummer's girlfriend, a neo-burlesque dancer from San Diego, who also dances on stage with the Damned. She told me that all of the guys in the band, but especially she and her boyfriend, were big into Tiki and even had a copy of TRT on their tour bus.

This, of course, made my week, since I was a big fan of this band in my wasted youth.

She set me up with passes to the show - I was quite surprised to find that they still sound good after all these years (last time I saw them was in the 80s).

The drummer isn't Rat anymore, it's a new younger guy.

Remember the Young Ones episode with the Damned singing "Nasty" - good stuff! Also: best Dmaned song ever (as opposed to best damned song ever) is one they didn't even write: "Alone Again Or...".

Oh yeah, and New Rose. And Neat Neat Neat. And Nasty. And Generals. And...

Way cool, tikibars! How nice is that, when your heroes tell you that YOU're their hero! (OK, maybe not "Hero", but you get the idea)

(And it IS a good manual to have on your tour bus! Wish it had been around in my touring day!)

The new drummer's name is Pinch. He slagged Rat pretty bad on FM949 in San Diego, saying that Rat's arms had fallen off due to "Saturday Night Palsey" during a 3 day bender, among other things.

Ya know, now that Rat's quit the band that means that every single member's quit at 1 time or another.

The lead singer of TSOL ran for governor? I thought that was Jello Biafra of The DK.

Well when Depeche did "Blasphemous Rumours" they certainly swerved hard into gothland.

Aside from that song I always thought of them as more of a dance band. With some fetish dancers in the background maybe.

Rat was very cool when I saw the Damned years ago, but he wouldn't sign the Naz Nomad and the Nightmares 45 I had, claiming that Nick Detroit had died.

Yep, held a spagetti dinner to raise money, had a Metro Whistle-stop tour, and promised to make all the lawyers, bankers, & brokers wear clown suits to work.

This was enough to make me delurk.

The Damned definately still have it and I was surprised to see that TSOL can still play as well - now that Jack is the lead singer again. I saw them about a year ago at a dive bar here in town.
It warmed my heart to find out that punk is not dead.
