Eagulls Cover Killing Joke

We love spiky down-to-earth punks Eagulls.

And we used to love Killing Joke.

And we certainly loved their apocalyptic single Requiem when it came out way back in 1980.

And now you can have Eagulls rather natty take on the aforesaid, doom laden classic.

Altogether now:

Man watching city fall
The clock keeps on ticking
He doesn’t know why
He’s just cattle for slaughter

World Goth Day: A Nostalgic Mixtape!

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.
