Product description


Acclaimed Kurt Cobain biographer Thompson charts Goth from Joy Division, Siouxsie and The Damned onto Bauhaus, The Cure, The Sisters of Mercy and beyond.

From the Publisher

Gothic rock is one of the most misunderstood genres in rock. At its best, in the early to mid 1980s,as represented by the finest work of The Sisters, Bauhaus, The Cure, The Fields of the Nephilim, et al, it ranks up there with some of the finest music ever made. Also, The Sisters were the quintessential goth band - while they often get overlooked in mainstream rock history, their body of work is one of the finest in rock.
