Vintage RT: Spring Goth

image1-4

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!

It’s hard to decide between the Ramones’ homage to the rocknroll radio of yore, The Modern Lovers’ ecstatic anthem about driving through your hometown blasting the car stereo, Velvet Underground’s sweet testament to music’s ability to be a life-altering savior or Joy Division’s hypnotic directive to dance, endlessly, to the radio…
