It’s time to release the bats as we’re taking a look at The Birthday Party (As well as The Boys Next Door album Door, Door). The band is most famous for being fronted by singer Nick Cave, but also featured the talented Rowland Howard and Bad Seeds member Mick Harvey. While their sound is most often associated with post-punk as opposed to gothic rock, their experimentation and abrasiveness have influenced many who make music that relates to the darker sides of life.

Gothropology is the show that discusses ancient traditions, spirituality, sexuality and regeneration- the guide to come and take you by the hand into unknown pleasures. On the second installment of Wheel of the Year with Griffin Ced, Brit-El and Griffin discuss the pagan high day Imbolc, and the traditions surrounding the return of spring. From the randy Roman origins of Valentine’s Day in Lupercalia to the stirring of returning earthly life force that is Imbolc, tune in for detailed discussion on the true reason for the season. The dark, contemplative “dying times” pass into light with clearing of the mind, surroundings and spirit– “spring cleaning” leading to the strength of will, allowing the primal force and strength of will to go forth and conquer. Griffin discusses further the inspiration that makes individual rites distinct year-by-year, and gives personal insight on his upbringing and experience as a community teacher today.

As the wheel turns, tune in!

We decided to honor the late great David Bowie by taking a look at three movies starring the Thin White Duke. Two of these films have strong connections to the gothic subculture and the third is a slightly obscure yet highly stylized film about an alien. If you’ve been waiting for us to discuss the Labyrinth, then this is your chance to hear us ramble about our love of Jim Henson’s masterpiece. Hopefully you find our opinions interesting and you might find a new movie worth checking out.

Welcome to episode 27 of Cemetery Confessions! On this month’s episode we explore why teenagers don’t feel the need to rebel, and how that plays into subculture movements, we hear an argument against goths appreciating Halloween, and we take a look at goth taught us about feminism. We have a review of the new album from Zotz, and for the philosophy corner, we are taking a look at vampires and their influence on and reflection of society and culture.

This time Dr.Sanders and Robbie Gore take a close look at one of the most influential bands in industrial music with Skinny Puppy. Their aggressive sound has connected with many people in the goth subculture although their music is not reminiscent of gothic rock or post-punk groups. We hope you enjoy this conversation about industrial music’s relation to goth and the first four albums that Skinny Puppy produced.
