UK Goths 1984

Spend two hours in the UK. The year is 1984 and your friends are wear black.

“this film has been rescued from an old mildewed-and-damaged VHS cassette tape so the quality in the first few minutes is pretty poor, but it settles down fine just in time for the action inside the club itself. The original video was commissioned by the couple who ran the club (Annie and Pete Swallow) and was distributed amongst family, friends and people who frequented it. I can’t remember if there was a charge for it at the time [thanks to the commenter who told us it was £2], probably was. This is the complete full length video as originally presented.” – Patrick Torsney

Goths Up Trees

My friend Collin Strange posted a link to a Tumblr blog called Goths up Trees which is photos of Goths in trees. Honestly this is what the internet was invented for. Let’s hope they keep adding to it.

“The goth subculture is a contemporary subculture found in many countries. It began in England during the early 1980s in the gothic rock scene, an offshoot of the post-punk genre. The goth subculture has survived much longer than others of the same era, and has continued to diversify.” – Wikipedia
