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!

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!

VINTAGE RT: FIFTEEN FEET OF PURE, WHITE SNOW

Well hello, strangers. This vintage retrotransmission mix, a dreamy, mellow and hypnotic one from fall 2012, is perfect for the winter solstice, which is upon us this very night. This is full of everything I like to listen to when the winter really begins to come down and we’re shrouded in sudden darkness: Death in June, Cocteau Twins, Current 93, Nico, Angels of Light, Psychic TV, Swans, Kate Bush, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Joy Division, Tear Garden, The Legendary Pink Dots, Sisters of Mercy, Clan of Xymox, Depeche Mode, etc. Listen on repeat and hibernate until the crocus appears from the frost…

RETROTRANSMISSION HALLOWEEN!!

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 😉

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.

After reading this great article, “Propaganda: The Aesthetics of Evil and Why Goth Was a Thing That Had to Happen,” I was inspired to post my vintage retrotransmission homage to the infamous UK Goth Club, The Batcave, from fall 2012.  Put on your black best and get your goth stomp on to the sounds of Specimen, Alien Sex Fiend, Bauhaus, Virgin Prunes, The Birthday Party, Tabathas Nightmare, Xmal Deutschland, etc….
