Sisters of Mercy is the best goth band to ever exist.

They are perfect. Every single second of their music are astonishing, their albums are just unbelievable good, from starts to finish. Nothing on the scene of goth compares with them, and perhaps, they'll be the most relevant band during the future years.

Who was the first musician or band that openly labeled themselves as ‘goth’?

It's a point of common knowledge among goths that the label wasn't really universally accepted or even liked by many of the seminal artists we come to consider forerunners of the genre, the most popular and well-known goth artists never took themselves under that label and often were very resentful of the term being applied. I don't think i need to belabor this point further or to list out who they were, we all know.

Which leads me to ask, who was the first musicians or band who actually openly declared themselves to be goth and proudly took it upon themselves as a moniker? I'm sorry if this is a stupid question but it's being asked sincerely. I hear so much about how this artist or that rejected the label despite being either pioneers of the genre or important to it's further development, and never about any musician who proudly claimed to be part of a nascent musical culture. Even today i feel like many musicians, wanting to be taken seriously, do not label themselves as goth because they feel it limits them creatively.

Equivalent goth band to The Shaggs (not in sound, but in quality)?

So, as many of you may know… The Shaggs are one of the best (worst really), bands of all time. They basically were forced by their father to play music, having no real talent and desire to play and basically their music is horrible. I mean I personally love them and will defend them to the death as one of the best bands to have ever existed. But yeah, their musicianship is shit and to the average listener, they probably couldn't listen past the first 15th second of their record.

Having said that, my question to you is this. Are there any goth bands out there similar to this? Just a really, really bad goth band that is just some weird cult following, which was built/made out of some weird circumstance like The Shaggs, where for whatever reason, even though they aren't very good, had continued to play and gig and now are some weird novelty/cult following goth band that only the really cool goth kids know about?

Ok Thanks! 🙂

Looking for material from this band, Gethsemane (92-95?)

Gethsemane were formed by Katie Helsby and Ian Palmer. After some lineup changes vocalist Porl Morgan is recruited and the lineup is complete, they released only two eps (dark hour, watch and pray) and two singles (here and now, switch) between '92 and '95. I'm curious about this band since I heard they had a very similar sound to rosetta stone and they were called "rosetta clone" because of the similarity they had. There are only 3 songs uploaded and I tried to get the tapes but there is nothing avaible on discogs

Do you guys like the band “Witching hour” ?

I'm totally new to gothic music tho I think we all know the song "ligea" by them but they don't seems to be a well known band.

What was your gateway band?

I just thought this would be an interesting discussion! Mine was probably The Birthday Party! I dicovered them as a kid because a family member liked them. I was so obsessed with the songs "The Freind Catcher" and "Mr. Clarinet" specifically.
