We couldn’t let Friday 13th go by without mentioning the dark-hearted spirit of 80s goth rock.
That was a time when a whole movement took the energy and edge of punk, the darker elements of 70s glam rock and even strains of psychedelia and forged them into new sounds. A whole “look” was born – in a word, black! – which has transcended its era and remains an iconic fashion/style to this day.
Cherry Red control the rights to many eery, menacing, doom-laden recordings by the likes of Alien Sex Fiend, Theatre Of Hate, Flesh For Lulu, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Skeletal Family, Ausgang, The Screaming Dead, Inca Babies, Hula and 1919.
You can almost smell the dry ice?
