Year: 1984

Albums: Pornography, The Cure

Hyaena, Siouxsie and the Banshees

Completing week 2, we hear how dreams of freedom grow from the dark visions of the Banshees' Hyaena album; its similarities to David Lynch's excavation of the wild urges and violent drives beneath the surface of suburban life are drawn out. Our young gothteens start dressing in line with the styles and ideas they see in the burgeoning alternative culture.

Part 1 of 2

Year: 1984

AlbumsPornography, The Cure

Hyaena, Siouxsie and the Banshees

Waking Up to Goth - in Week 2, we find our alternative heroes turning on to goth and alternative music and culture in a big way. Though still young, the seeds of creativity and freedom are beginning to sprout. From the dark earth laid down by The Cure and Siouxsie and the Banshees, Simon and Nicky start to dream, still sitting behind school desks, of wider, stranger horizons...

Year: 1983

Albums: Breaking Glass, Hazel O'Connor

Head Over Heels, Cocteau Twins

We join our brave young alternatives for the conclusion of their debut week. We've seen them narrowly escape injury at the disco at the end of the pier, and we've heard Nicky's paean to the inspirations of Breaking Glass, now check out Simon's exploration of what made Cocteau Twins so important to his life as a 14-year-old becalmed in the doldrums of the everyday world in small-town suburbia, England, in the early 1980s.

Part 1 of 2.

Year: 1983

Albums: Breaking Glass, Hazel O'Connor; Head Over Heels, Cocteau Twins

Week 1 introduces our alternative heroes. At the tender age of 14, they meet as one is escorted out of the disco at the end of the ramshackle seaside pier, after being threatened, as the other is on his way in, with two hungry-for-action sociapaths riding shotgun. After meeting, Nicky and Simon find they share a love of alternative music and culture, and take their first steps into a darker world of creativity, fascination and doom.

Episodes will be posted in 2 parts.

Nine women and two men were tried and executed for witchcraft in 1612 near Pendle in Lancashire. This was an unprecedented death toll for a single witch trial at the time. In this episode, we discuss witchcraft in England, and why these trials may have resulted in so many executions.
