The Pandemic Songs (Saustex Records). Review by James Mann.
A triple bill of underground Goth, led by NYC’s Pawns, transforms Uncle Lou’s into a time machine. Jen Cray did not wear eye makeup, but she did wear a black shirt to the show.
When Gothic godfather (oh stop it) Peter Murphy swept into Jacksonville on the 4th of July with a bag full of hits and Bauhaus classics, Matthew Moyer dropped his bottle rockets and went to check out the REAL fiireworks.
Beauty?… (Hollow Hills Sound Recordings). Review by Matthew Moyer.
Unshattered (Viastar). Review by Matthew Damascus.
Learning Curve (self-released). Review by Anton Warner.
Boo Hoo (Projekt). Review by Ian Koss.
Tom “Tearaway” Schulte has probably listened to it and reviewed it before you’ve even heard of it. This month he includes vinyl reviews and longer pieces on Tom Waits and Fred Frith.
Peter Murphy discusses Dust — his new East-meets-West CD — as well as David Bowie and the true meaning of "Gothic" in a surprisingly candid chat with Steve Stav.
Steve Stav offers his personal musical recipe for love, culling from various music genres and eras, to get your Valentine’s Day headed in the right direction. What, no Barry White?
Live In Liverpool (spinART). Review by Steve Stav.
Tom ‘Tearaway’ Schulte cuts through a score of new releases, all kinds of electronic noise, garage thrash, and muso mastery compressed into compact critical chunks. It’s Outsight.
Campground Effect (Glue Factory). Review by Marcel Feldmar.
