By Cathi Unsworth

Cathi Unsworth, music journalist (Sounds, Guardian, Mojo, Uncut etc.) and author of the Jordan memoir, Defying Gravity, celebrates all that is covered under the cape of the musical culture that is Gothic. Focusing on its inception and explosion in the 70s and 80Killing Joke, Bauhaus, Joy Division, Birthday Party, Cramps, Cure, Lydia Lunch, Siouxsie, Sisters of Mercy, Southern Death Cult, Theatre of Hate etc. Including both the personal experiences of the author, and also the broader context of the social and political events of the day. Including regional scenes, (Leeds, of course) and adjacent bands such as The Mekons, UK Decay, and The Mob. Essential for social/cultural history obsessives. One Amazon reviewer mentions that Fields Of Nephilim got zero mention – which has to be a bonus!
