What do you think about goth bands using backing tracks in a crutch-like manner during live shows?

I remember my introduction to the existence of backing tracks. I was at a goth/industrial show and the opening band had to cut their set to about half a song. Because the cd player handling the backing tracks failed. I have seen goth bands tour my city and the first show had a full band. The next show had a missing bassist who had now been absorbed into the backing track. It felt like Alice in Wonderland but lame. Many shows I see people freaking out over are literally just a karaoke show with a keyboard playing single notes.

I understand it isn't easy to tour in this economic climate and make sure everybody gets paid decent, but it's reaching the point where I think the audience have lowered their own standards to accommodate what they are oversaturated with. Curious what other people think based on shows they have been to.

What pedal effect are they using?

I’ve been trying to figure out what pedal they are using for this song. I think it’s overdrive/distortion combined with some kind of delay. Almost has that Robin Guthrie/Cocteau twins sound.

Thoughts?

Did Angela Benedict ever formally apologize for using the n-word?

I used to watch her a lot (I’m a Black Goth, been in the scene for about a decade) a long time ago when I was new to the subculture. I remember when she did her first cover of Romeo’s Distress without the n-word and people pressured her to re-do it and she actually did it and sang it. I remember watching it. I stopped watching her for a bit but I also think that maybe she stopped posting? I’ve recently noticed a resurgence in her posts or maybe she’s just popping up in my feed again. I can’t find either video of her singing Romeo’s Distress anywhere but I also can’t find a formal apology. Did she just quietly take the video down and never publicly formally apologize? She was definitely in her 30s-40s at the time and old enough to know better I think. And I would appreciate seeing an acknowledgment of wrongdoing to her Black fans literally anywhere.
