A nice mixture of some new discoveries (had never heard the Thomas Dolby track before), and some old favourites (makes me wonder I left my copy of Nekromatik's Fairy Catcher...). Thank you!


Glad you enjoyed it, so many of these songs remind me very fondly of Slimelight, Gossips and Whitby adventures when I lived in the UK! I loved Nekromantik and got to see them live a few times too!


Ah! I figured, if you knew bands such as Nekromatik, and had bands such as Soft Cell, Skinny Puppy and The Virgin Prunes on there, you would have been a fellow ex-Slimelighter. Small world! :)


Yes, I still have my membership card, from back in the day when you had to get two members to co-sign and take a written test! Makes me London homesick for sure. Small Goth world indeed! Nice to meet you!


Ah yes. I still have the test somewhere at home (I think I passed, I wasn't entirely sober at the time). Lovely to meet you, too! :)


I loved this-- the first song I was listened to, I didn't watch closely enough to get the name! It started out with chanting/talking and it almost sounded like Arabic to me, and the lyrics mentioned God quite a few times, the almost chanting came up... do you know which track that is? I'd love to purchase it!


I think you are referring to "The Devil is an Englishman" it's from the soundtrack to Gothic (the Ken Russell film). Let me know if that is it!
