Gothic Rock

We have a special two-part version of We Have A Commentary for you this week, as we’re tackling both discs of the Mick Mercer-curated Gothic Rock compilation, a companion record to Mercer’s book of the same name. In the first instalment, we’re discussing some absolutely foundational tracks by the likes of Bauhaus, X-Mal Deutschland, Virgin Prunes, and plenty of others, noting both the variety of sounds and the emergence of unifying tropes across the genre’s early years. Stay tuned for our discussion of the second disc this weekend! As always, you can rate and subscribe on iTunes, Google Podcasts, download directly, or listen through the widget down below.
