Bloodletting is an ancient treatment that persisted until the 18th century. One of the techniques used to let blood were leeches, blood-sucking worms. In this episode, we discuss both the history of bloodletting and these fascinating yet creepy creatures.

Year: 1989

Albums: Dawnrazor, Fields of the Nephilim

Radio Ethiopia, Patti Smith Group

Patti Smith's revolutionary rock is in the air, as is the smell of Nick cooking bacon in Simon's vegetarian-only frying pan, this week. We discover how our weedy heroes found their dream flat in Camden High Street, only for it to be plunged into darkness and nightmare as the skylight went out. A goth hothouse was born, burned for a little while, then puttered out. Oh, the merciless scourings of time!

Part 1 of 2

Year: 1989

Albums: Dawnrazor, Fields of the Nephilim

Radio Ethiopia, Patti Smith Group

A divine 'derangement of the senses' was the order of the day, and Simon and Nick went about the task with true dedication. Moving into a flat across the road from the legendary Camden Palace club in London, heady days of smoke, noise, intense discussion and musical exploration ensued. An unforeseen windowless darkness descended from above. O Lord, were these headless, heedless pilgrims prepared? Does a goth where any colour except purple?

This month we are looking at the ever shifting spaces goths inhabit, reifying their ritualistic, embodied bringing forth of identity into the world around us. The future of these spaces is now forever changed as the current pandemic robs us of our sacred curated temples to goth. We also review the new album from The Funeral Medieval, share our Sinister Suggestions and more!

Our guests this month are Sean Detra and Mary Millions of Sisters of Mondays!
