When did goths start calling themselves goths?

When did the word appear for the first time? (Referring to the subculture). Was it already around during the 80's?

I want to start a gothy band (Salem MA)

Hi reddit goths

I want to get a goth rock band together. My local craigslist has been a dead end, I'm keeping my listing live but ready to start thinking of other ideas. I punched up a flyer that I'm thinking about having printed up to leave at likely spots (coffee shops, music stores, local club nights, etc). I can't decide if it's a stupid idea or not, but I kind of feel like I need to try something else before I just accept that I really am on my own here. Just wanted to see if anybody had some insights that I might be able to use or thoughts on the subject. Thanks!

Kinda new here, slowly transitioning and wondering what I can do with my style and music and where to start to further develop my love for this subculture in general and really dive deep.

When can I start calling myself goth?

I started listening to goth rock a few weeks ago when a friend I made at college played it for me. So far I really like a lot of the music I’ve checked out.

I’ve also begun looking into the history of the goth subculture, how it originated, the clubs, lifestyle, etc. Although I’m definitely going to do some more in depth research in the future.

I’m still developing my style, I wouldn’t say it’s a goth style per se but it’s definitely a darker aesthetic.

Here’s the music I’ve listened to so far: Alien Sex Fiend Fields of the Nephilim Clan of Xymox Skinny Puppy Sisters of Mercy Sopor Aeternus Depeche Mode (not sure if Depeche Mode counts)

So is it too early to call myself goth?
