In Camera – “13: Lucky for Some”

Posted in Uncategorized by Mogo on July 8, 2007

Teenbeat Records re-issue of material by this overlooked UK post-punk quartet. marred somewhat by the questionable inclusion of some early-90s remix material tagged onto the end, this is nonetheless a worthwhile listen for the original tracks if nothing else.

The Veil – “Surrender”

Posted in Uncategorized by Mogo on July 8, 2007

a bit of a personal story behind this one. in the┬ámid-90s, I was making regular weekly visits to the store of a collector/DJ friend who ran the place (this is the same guy who got hold of the 50 Ft. Hose album for me). at the time, I was mostly interested in/purchasing experimental, psych and free jazz albums. at one point I was looking through his vinyl selection and he said “you like some goth stuff right?”… “well yeah,” I said, “but mostly the earlier british ‘batcave’ type stuff”. he said “ok, right. you should get this then” and handed me a copy of this album with a $5 price tag on it. The Veil – “Surrender”. I figured for $5 it couldn’t hurt. took it home, played it, and the rest is history.

being vinyl impaired, I haven’t been able to play my copy in quite some time, so I found this on soulseek a while back. while making my plans for this post yesterday, I googled it and came across the excellent Phoenix Hairpins blog, who posted this last November. still going to post it here, but this is just the tip of the iceberg of what they have available over there. if you like the ‘batcave’ style goth and enjoy today’s posts, I highly recommend that you also pay them a visit and fill your hard drive up a bit more. in the meantime,

Theatre of Hate – “Revolution”

Posted in Uncategorized by Mogo on July 8, 2007

stepping again a little outside of our usual fodder for a bit of a “goth day” here at the Sector. to be clear though, we are talking about earlier goth in the 4AD, Factory etc etc – the good stuff that spun out of the UK and European post-punk/new-wave scenes in the late 70s/early 80’s, not the metalhead-melodrama of the 90s.

Theatre of Hate were a punk-ish goth group along the lines of 45 Grave with a decidedly politcal bent to both their lyrical themes and album-cover art. this great LP was released in 1984.
