How did goth develop from very guitar driven sounds to a modern shape with a heavy emphasis on synth, while still being considered goth?

There's a gulf between Sisters of Mercy and something like Twin Tribes or Forever Grey, but we all intuit them as 'goth' and i'm just wondering how this developed, historically.

EDIT: Misspoke here, did not mean to imply that synth or darkwave is a modern thing, but more that it's far more prevalent now as a dominant goth sound and was curios as to how we still consider this music to be goth (not that i disagree with that at all).

Have you seen any of the bands from this year’s WGT live? Which ones would you recommend?

I'm trying to plan my schedule and avoid leaving a venue after a few minutes and being late for something that’s actually good lol. So far I'm most looking forward to seeing Topographies, Sextile and Dancing Plague, I think they've never been to Europe before.

PSA from an Elder

First post here, I’ll try to keep it brief, but I feel there is something that needs to be said. I have been into goth/industrial since the mid nineties, and I wanted to provide some words of encouragement for the people who are new to this whole thing.

I see post after post asking “is this goth?”, “is that goth?”, “am I goth?”, “are you goth?”, “I think I’m goth, but am I goth enough?”, etc, etc, etc….

Music: As far as music goes, the goth genre is very specific. With the exception of Andrew Eldritch, and a few others, bands who are goth know that they’re goth, and make it pretty damn obvious that they’re a goth band. There are some good ones and many that suck, but there really isn’t any debate about whether or not they are goth.

The important thing to note here is that no one, I don’t care how goth they are, listens exclusively to goth bands. I can’t imagine anything more boring and mundane than that.

There are several genres that are not goth, but perfectly playable at a goth night, or goth get-together. Those might include Industrial, Synthpop, Darkwave, post-punk, etc.

Then there are the things you listen to that are not goth, or any of the adjacent genres that you listen to because you like them, and you are an individual who is allowed to like whatever kind of music you want to listen to. That can be anything. Yes, anything.

I am an experience musician in the gothic/industrial genres, and I personally listen to everything from ABBA, to Black Metal… including a very select number of country artists. I also love Gangsta Rap, and 60’s girl-pop.

You like what you like and anyone who disapproves can kick rocks. Seriously.

Are you goth?

Well, you’re here. You might be just now getting into it, or maybe you have been curiously exploring it for a while and thinking you might dive in head first. Maybe you’re royalty in your local scene…. Whatever the case may be, I have some advice. Just like anything else, there is a lifecycle involved in being a goth. Everyone here fits into one of these stages:

  1. You like the music and aesthetic, but ultimately don’t care too much about the scene and how people in the scene see you. (Some people are fine staying here and not going any further, or lose interest)

  2. You are in love with everything goth and going full bore into it. You are well aware that people who have been around longer are looking and you, dismissively at best, contemptuously at worst, and you are doing everything you can to gain their approval.

  3. You made it! You’re the real deal. You know what’s up for sure. Maybe you even have a DJ spot at a local goth night. Now it’s your turn to give the fish eye to the out of place newcomers who pronounce the “x” in “Siouxsie” and wear brand new NIN shirts from Hot Topic. This is the pinnacle. (Some try to stay here forever, but most realize that it really doesn’t age well).

  4. You have been through the scene, and still have affection for it, but really you could care less about your standing in the scene. You might hit the club occasionally, or go see a band when they’re in town, and even though you still love the music and the aesthetic, you no longer care enough to put up with the drama. And, you are back to getting the fish eye because you’re old enough to be the baby-bats’ mom or dad.

I know, TLDR… but I’m going somewhere:

The reason I cringe when I see posts asking about things being “goth”is because it is obviously something that you like, but you are concerned about whether or not it’s goth. I get it I’ve been there, but you are you. Don’t make goth your personality. Be you, and incorporate the things you like in the places you want to. If someone says you’re not goth because you have Taylor Swift in your Spotify playlist, tell them to pound sand.

No one worth knowing is ever going to judge you for not being goth enough. Your beauty is in your soul, and if someone can’t see it, you are better off without them.

Where is Siouxsie’s top from?

I really want one! It’s so cool! Is it from a brand or if anywhere sells something similar.

Thanks!
