Influenced by the glam and punk movements of the 1970's, post-punk goth rock reflected the emerging goth subculture of the early 1980's. Founding bands included Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus, The Cure, Alien Sex Fiend, Christian Death, Specimen, etc. The legendary London nightclub, The Batcave, opened in 1982 and would become a center for this new music genre. Goth music encompassed not only gothic rock but also deathrock, darkwave, industrial and new wave music genres. Tune in tonight as we explore 80's goth on WXDU's College Radio Primer from 8-10pm.
During its classic years from 1980-1992, the British independent record label 4AD amassed an impressive and diverse roster of artists. Formed in 1979 by Beggars Banquet record store employees, Ivo Watts-Russell and early business partner Peter Kent, 4AD was on the cutting edge of independent music. Kent left early on and Ivo began to curate for the label a range of pioneering bands such as Bauhaus, Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance and the Pixies. Not only was 4AD known for its music but also for its collaboration with graphic designer Vaughn Oliver of v23 (formerly 23 Envelope).
