Part 2 of 2

Year: 1990

Albums: Love, The Cult

Les Mystere de Voix Bulgares (4AD compilation)

Our nocturnal seekers of solace turn their thoughts to two very different albums, one a reverb-drenched rock-inflected anthemic classic, one an otherworldly choral journey thru the strangest recesses of the human soul. Along the way they find a (more or less) definitive answer to the question of the ages: what is goth?

Greetings Darklings! In this week's interview, Ken and Collin got the awesome opportunity to talk with Der Prosector, the electro-punk/industrial four-piece that recently dropped their single "Car Bomb" and remixes. Together via Zoom, the group talks about punk rock pasts, nerdy stuff like DC comics and sports, as well as what to expect from the group in the future.

To hear more from Der Prosector, check out: https://www.derprosector.com/discog https://derprosector.bandcamp.com/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC66p... https://www.facebook.com/derprosector

In this episode, we discuss a biological phenomenon that has been mistaken for a supernatural experience for hundreds of years. People of the past believed demons, witches, or spirits were sitting on their chests while they slept, crushing them, but today this experience is known as sleep paralysis, and it's far more common than previously thought.

Part 1 of 2

Year: 1990

Albums: Love, The Cult

Les Mystere de Voix Bulgares (4AD Compilation)

As a decade comes to a close, Nick's band plays their biggest London gig, but on the other side of the mountaintop a painful descent awaits. Simon heads back to his hometown for a year out, finds himself a soul-crushing job in the infamous hive of drudgery atop the hill, but finds a way of piecing together life's fragments in his first recorded songs.

While the debate of what qualifies as goth will be forever debated on the internet, there are various genres that qualify as goth adjacent and could certainly fit into a dark music lover's collection. One of us may have been a little tipsy and a little rambly, too, so apologies in advance!
