Seems weird to see Sting doing that song solo in 81.

Good stuff though. The Police were, imo, one the best, if not the best, band in the 80s.

Since my whole reply went away through the use of the wrong key combination - the album "Tell me something" by Paul D'Adamo (of whom I had never heard before) is an excellent light-hearted album with a bit swing-jazz mixed in - good of you need something light.hearted and easy to listen to.

There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable… I simply am not there.

I'm listening to Jimang's la divina tragedia.

I love the song, even though I hate the anime it first appeared in. It's a very unique song: It's awful, and at the same time it's awesome; It's terrible, and at the same time it's really cool; It's painful to listen to, and at the same time is really passionate and touching. I don't really understand it, but who cares about understanding stuffies?

And Jimang looks really cool, and fine, and tasty for such an old and ugly guy.

They deserve each other, I guess.

Tell me more, tell me more… Like, does he have a car?

Let's opera! Il Trovatore.

#3 is definitely my fave. I love the version by Sky (sort of a classical rock thing with guitarist John Williams). Most of their stuff is pretty average but that song is gorgeous …

Criminally underappreciated band!

Second Skin is probably my favorite track of theirs, but there's just so many great ones to choose from:
"Tears"
"Up the Down Escalator"

And how about mixing up two of my faves!
Mark Burgess with The Curtain Society doing "Swamp Thing"

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

Á propos, I´m replaying System Shock 2 at impossible difficulty plus few mods atm and roughly the first 6 minutes of this Venetian Snares´ track kick unholy levels of ass at every level .

Hey that was very good. I am surprised I have never heard of them (good thing the
Joy division and disintegration reference got my eye)!

It is particularly strange that my Goth/darkwave connoisseur friend (that has pushed boatloads of obscure stuff to me in addition to the boatload I have discovered for myself) had not heard of them either…

I'll just contribute a little air to this thread as I see you people are not shy with the classics or anything

This band is even better live on stage.

The studio versions of their songs are often a bit over-produced.

THE CHAMELEONS-second skin live in london 1984

Mark Burgess is still rockin':

Mark Burgess - Soul In Isolation

Singing together with true fans:

Mark Burgess - Second Skin

My opinion: Goth Rock never dies:
Rhombus - Love you 'til Closing Time

"Anywhere" by Rhombus

Very nice indeed.

Now I have to post my own personal faves from the Genre

Starting from the Top:

Fields of the Nephilim Watchman (my personal theme song )

And speaking of Live performances: Last exit for the Lost

Next up Bauhaus, gods what to choose from those guys … I know! :

She is in parties

And tying in with my Celtic mythology fixation : Hollow Hills

And last but not least Sisters of Mercy, so many awesome tunes..

…But I 'll naturally start with the Temple

And I think to wrap up the second is a live motif : Walk away

That was lots of fun, that was…

P.S The only reason I do not post my joy division favorites is that this post would start to look like a playlist really fast

Those guys are pretty good too! Thanks for the links!

This was a productive morning, not often I discover two groups in a row. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread more often I think…

Joy Division, Bauhaus, Sisters - like them all.

More "rare" stuff:

Second Skin - The Gits

Tones on Tail - Performance

Deine Lakaien - Gone

The Gun Club - "Mother of Earth"

The Arch - Ribdancer

Pink Turns Blue - Walk Away

The Volcanoes - Hail Your Love

The Volcanoes - Johnny Johnny

… and something different:
The Dresden Dolls
'Mandy Goes to Med School'

I love Deine Lakaien, must have most of their stuff. And of course I hunted down everything Ash, Murphy and co did on their own (nothing compares to the stuff they did with Bauhaus though). Very interesting stuff on the rest of the links though…

It has come to my attention some time now that I have grown a bit complacent in my musical pursuits the last decade or so… I just do not go out to hunt for "new" stuff as vigorously as I did… A sign of old age ?

P.S If you haven't listened to the Murphy/ Reznor collaboration you should imo
some I could find in a hurry:

Dead Souls,Sanity Assasin, Hurt, Dreams, Warm Leatherette

two very fine gentlemen…

Murphy/ Reznor collaboration - this is new to me - very good.

We are NOT old - we are listening to cool music on a cold Sunday morning …
