This retrotransmission episode is inspired by the schizophrenic weather of early spring, when its warm and sunny one day, then cool, damp, raining, and grey the next. These are moody, weird tunes for a dark spring. Tune in live today 4-6 EST on 8ball radio to listen to tracks from Nico, Chrome, Psychic TV , Kraftwerk, Legendary Pink Dots, Clan of Xymox, Peter Murphy, Edward KaSpell, Dead Can Dance, Siouxsie, and more…

If you can’t tune in live, you can always listen to the playlist here, or catch any of my radio shows on my archive. Enjoy!

VINTAGE RT: SOME WEAR LEATHER, SOME WEAR LACE…

This time of year, when it gets chilly and brisk, all I want to listen to is 70s, 80s, and 90s goth, and think about how Halloween is right around the corner…

VINTAGE RT: AUTUMN EQUINOX

After a long hiatus while I moved across the country and settled in, retrotransmission is back! On the eve of the Autumn Equinox, and in celebration of the dropping mercury, I felt it appropriate to post one of my many fall playlists. This one comes from Fall 2012 and features a lot of bands I listen to when it gets cooler out: Front 242, Psychic TV, The Tear Garden, Skinny Puppy, Love and Rockets, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Tones on Tail, 6 Comm, Depeche Mode, Swans, The Legendary Pink Dots, The Creatures, Joy Division, Dead Can Dance, Clan of Xymox, and more. I hope this gets you in the mood for the greatest season there is.

VINTAGE RT: DIRTY BLACK SUMMER

Today I’m posting one of my favorite retrotransmissions of all time: The Black Show. This show, from spring 2013, features rock n roll, goth, punk, and post punk bands paying homage to black. Summer goth reigns.
