OG Goth Ride

August 8, 2021 at 2:00 pm

“This Goth ride meets on a Sunday afternoon, 8th of August. This is MY Goth, as Punk is one influence on the specific English genre I have in mind. We tour cemeteries, rose gardens, and interesting architecture with historical lectures as part of the thing. Goth is more than just fashion to me, it’s a vibe in music and art that honors ancestral currents, thus cozy with the strange beauty of graveyards and the thorny lush of the rose. Not a late night dance party, more like a picnic in the park. Sound systems play full albums, we take turns leading as DJ’s. MY Goth is The Cure, Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil, Bowie but only the albums he did with Brian Eno; Coil in their Lunar phase such as Music To Play In The Dark, The Ape Of Naples, Astral Disaster; Love’s Secret Domain is also a key favorite since to me it bridges the Solar and Lunar phases of the band. The Banshees. This is for while we ride. In the parks and gaveyards I’d like us to bring instruments for analog jams. Picnic in the graveyard is the theme for this Goth ride, inspired by the ones I attended in the past. There will be hills. Gears highly recommended.”
