The tunes playing on Radio 6 this morning in tongue-in-cheek honour of National Goth Day made us all nostalgic for our very own black and purple tinged youth, when Wayne Hussey and Andrew Eldritch ruled the airwaves (sort of) and Fields of the Nephilim kept Homepride in business.
Here then for your listening and reminiscing pleasure, as the witching hour approaches, a 13 song mixtape down memory lane. In our cloaks and via the graveyard of course, accompanied by legions of squeaking bats.
