In the late 90s/early 2000s, I used to frequent Tucson’s Fine Line goth and industrial club, RIP. This playlist conjures the spirit of that long lost legend. Tune in from 4-6EST/1-3PST today to listen to the show live on 8ball radio, or check it out later in the retrotransmission archives. Put on your blackest black and goth shuffle to tracks from My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Front242, Switchblade Symphony, XMal Deutschland, Specimen, Alien Sex Fiend, Skinny Puppy, Revolting Cocks, The Wake, Skeletal Family, The March Violets, Bauhaus, Type O Negative, Nitzer Ebb, Sisters of Mercy, The Danse Society, The Cure, NIN, Depeche Mode, Ministry, Christian Death, Clan of Xymox, and more!
Well, I just finished sewing my leather bat wings to my catsuit, so you know what that means! It’s almost TIME! On this day, anything goes, kids. Let the retrotransmission Halloween show be the soundtrack to your mischief and mayhem…but don’t do anything I wouldn’t do 😉
So, yesterday someone shared with me the images from Lethal Amount’s Without Sympathy show, featuring lots of great early photos of Al Jourgensen, Miistry, and Revolting Cocks. As a longtime fan of Al and his projects, I found it inspiring and came home and listened to Without Sympathy, Twitch, and the Trax! box set back to back. This morning I decided to post my vintage retrotransmission “Al and Friends” show from Winter 2014, featuring plenty of Ministry and Revolting Cocks, but also Lard, KMFDM, Rigor Mortis, Pailhead, 1000 Homo DJs, Pigface, PTP, Skinny Puppy, and more. Viva Uncle Al!

Tonight was my final retrotransmission on rainydawg radio, and it was emotional for me. I hate goodbyes, so I wanted to end on a high note with a nonstop dance party, the kind where music blasts from a righteous sound system at top volume and people can’t get off the dance floor. Postpunk, pop, goth (I had to represent the goth stomp!), industrial dance, and electro kept it strong all night, and I sent retrotransmission off in style. I hope to be broadcasting live from the radio again soon…stay tuned. But until then, keep checking this blog every Monday for new and vintage retrotransmission playlists!
