KITTENS FOR CHRISTIAN
I recommend their early 90s material, not their 2003 re-emergence. I have their s/t 7", and a demo cassette that I later found out ended being a promo that included one-half of their proper cassette album "Flowers"

MINNY POPS
a Dutch group who put out more albums and singles than what's allowed in this thread, but under-appreciated nonetheless. They appeared on Plurex and Factory Records.

STIFF KITTENS
good solid late-80s goth-rock as only the UK can put out. Only a 7", an EP, and another issued as both 7" and 12" (tip o' the hat to Squiggles for giving me the "Happy Now" 12")

DECEPTION BAY
More solid goth rock from the late 80's/early 90s. Released on the Independent Project Records (the brainchild of former Savage Republic guitarist, Bruce Licher), and shares the label with For Against, Abecedarians, Savage Republic, Kommunity FK, and Red Temple Spirits.

CHAOS Z-German dark punk band; most will likely come across them (like I did) through their appearance on the Godfathers Of German Gothic comp.

A WEDDING ANNIVERSARY- A French band with a more polished poppy sound akin to maybe the Psychedelic Furs or Zero le Creche. I only have their s/t debut and a 7", but they apparently have another album after that.

SYS OF CHOI-Catchy female-fronted band from Germany. They appear on Vol 2 of Ghostriders Of German Gothic, but their 7" "(He Was) a Lonely Girl" is even better. I'm still trying to track down their only album that isn't going to cost me close to $100 from Spain.

THE NOW DEAD-local current group that I really dig, and really wish they would put out their second demo cassette already! I mean, you gotta love a group ballsy enough to release cassettes nowadays!

I concur with the earlier recommendations of LOOK BACK IN ANGER and YOUR FUNERAL. YF is just about mandatory, and the 7" is their only body of workl, sadly. Also anyone know if the rest of the material by RADIO WEREWOLF is as delightfully cheesy as "Buried Alive" on the "American Gothic" comp? I love that song, it's so campy I play it often when I DJ. I get people asking me who it is...

Couple of things here...

Stiff Kittens actually had a 7" version of 'Eternal Blue' with an interesting B-side, a live recording of a gothed up cover of Free's 'Fire & Water.'

I'm 80% certain that A Wedding Anniversary was actually Austrian instead of French. ;)

Sys Of Choi had two 7" releases, '(He Was) A Lonely Girl' and 'Nights In White Satin,' and a single LP, 'Get Wet.' Their second 7" doesn't seem to have an entry on Discogs.com yet, so I should probably get on that since I already have a copy (the B-side titled 'Drousy Camel' is pretty ace). There's actually a copy of the LP on Ebay right now for less than $20 USD (make sure 'Worldwide' location is checked). Don't know what happened to the cheap copies on Discogs.com, guess people bought them all up when I wasn't looking. At least I already got a copy! :]

you do understand what the word OBSCURE means ... right? :lol:


all jokes aside... (or asshole remarks like... years and years late :D )

any band I want ... for instance I'm reminiscing old stuff I lost... just googled "theatre of ice blogspot" and found buncha sites with those early rare theatre of ice albums my ears been missing.

THEATRE OF ICE revival underway... tons of old crappy stuff (stuff before I was in the band) is showing up all over the net... especially on YouTube.

Actually there are several out there... "Mouse Blood" is the best of 1979-1985... "Life is a Wild and Scary Thing" is a collection from 1986-1992... 'Lurid Little Lies" is a real best of 1988 - 1995... "Life is a Wild and Scary Thing" is the best CD. I joined the band in 1987.

The big problem I have with Theatre of Ice is that there's so much material to look at, I just don't know where to start. I only have listen to a few songs here and there...

I'd say give a listen to "A Cool Dark Place to Die"... the album from 1984 and "Life is a Wild and Scary Thing"... from 1992. That would give you a good prospectus of the early experimental stuff and the later more accessible stuff. If you want to hear something from the garage punk years go with "Death Becomes You".

I put together a free tour of our music in the board on the link below.. 12 songs I found on YouTube.
