I'm gonna start looking into this.
Glad you like it! Bauhaus are a fantastic band.

I've always that it was unfortunate that goth has this association with being dark, depressing, whiny type stuff because that really not what it's about at all.

I know it is. As you said, hard genre to explain.

Yeah I agree with Janszoon. I've always looked at goth rock as a genre that likes to play with dark themes, be it for fun or some romanticism, but not truly being dark. There was always a certain distance from it. I have a love/hate relationship with goth rock. I like those first bands, so called death rock, basically the majority already listed here. But I really don't like Sisters of Mercy and their innumerable clones.

LOL. I did a bit of goth wallowing in my day. Can't say much of it earned a permanent place in my play lists but I enjoyed it at the time. (Well maybe 'enjoy' isn't the right word for goth )

Bauhaus - Hollow Hills




Sisters of Mercy - Marian




Christian Death - This is Heresy

Yeah I didn't mind the Tones on Tail stuff. Love and Rockets I felt was pretty ordinary though. I quite liked Dali's Car that Peter Murphy did with Mick Karn from Japan.
