For our return to regular releases we thought what better way to start than with part three of Siouxsie and the Banshees. This episode we talk about the last three albums they released before disbanding. This era of the Banshees saw a heavier shift towards pop music with the albums Peepshow (1988), Superstition (1991), and The Rapture (1995). Don’t worry, there’s going to be more content about the goth icons, but just in different way. We hope you enjoy this episode and give these albums a chance.

We are interviewing Emma tonight about socio-aesthetic experiences of culture, cultural history, viewing goth as a culture rather than subculture, and the sociology of design; specifically how that translates into communities of belonging especially among goths. Emma is now undertaking a PhD as a participant researcher. She recently conducted the largest ever survey about goth, among participants of the culture for that very project, which is titled Just a Phase?  Goth subculture as an identity constant beyond youth.

This week on GothCast we take a look at three very interesting films that have dark atmospheres and film noir influences. These movies have surprisingly a lot in common, but their differences make each of them a unique experience. So join us as we tell you what we thought of the movies Dark City, The City of Lost Children, and Brazil.

Also I’m including the incorrect date posted on the Kommunity FK website (as of 3/29/2016) so you can see what we were referencing during the “Recent Interesting Goth Stuff” portion of the podcast.

Mar 29, 2016

On this installment of Gothropology, Griffin Ced and your haunted host Brit-El discuss Ostara and the spring equinox: the finding of inner peace and stability whilst weathering the turmoil of others, and harnessing the creative forces in the season of change. The revealing nature of the season's light, the potential of spring as the transgender-oriented, gender-negatory festival of the Wheel, the strength of the tide... join in on the conversation on stirring energy and awakening light. Griffin and Brit-El also discuss the need to drink directly from the Well of creation on our own rather than glorifying actions in the past, of giving honor to the Hero rather than celebrating the Victim, and another way to celebrate easter: Odin!

What are the right questions that open the most interesting doors? Tune in for insight on the tides that rush to push the awakening of spirit, and follow The Green Man's events on their calendar and Facebook.

This is unfortunately our final episode on Dr.Sanders’ favorite band, Type O Negative. We’re covering every album from World Coming to Dead Again and a few other releases from them. Type O Negative’s output during this time drew upon everything from family relationships, religion, and even a song written about Steele’s Playgirl spread. It was quite an interesting time and we had a lot of fun discussing it. The most tragic part of the entire situation is that there are no more albums for us to talk about.

45 Grave is one of the more interesting bands associated with deathrock and one that needs to be discussed. Their sound has elements of many different genres and blends them into a very unique sound. They’re often compared to Christian Death in style, but are further from that sound than one would be led to believe. On this episode we take a look at Sleep In Safety, Autopsy, Only The Good Die Young, and Pick Your Poison.

That’s right! The time has come for a long overdue discussion about Joy Division. While not a gothic band, (their genre lies mostly in post-punk) there is no denying the influence the group had on the emerging goth music scene. We’re probably all familiar with the album Unknown Pleasures, but maybe this episode will shed some light on the other releases that came out before and after that seminal album.

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.

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.
