An ur-source for goth music and thematics, The Virgin Prunes’ …If I Die I Die is the subject of this month’s We Have A Commentary.

Crack a Guiness or pour yourself an absinthe and traipse through the stranger lands of The Virgin Prunes.You can rate and subscribe on iTunes, Google Play Music, or download directly or stream from Spotify or the widget down below.
Excellent episode. One thing I wish you had touched on, especially since you had mentioned the relationship between the Prunes and Bauhaus, is just how much the intro of Love & Rockets ‘The Game’ sounds like ‘Theme for Thought’.
