The New Goth...

So, not goth then?

(Thanks to nemesis_to_go , the NME and a few arguements with people about the new ermerging goth scene that most goths would never have heard of).

Many of the bands are reminiscant of *very* early post-punk/goth bands. Very raw

KASMS - Taxidermy
 
 


A.Human - Black Moon


Televised Crimewave - Kids


A Place To Bury Strangers - To Fix The Gash In Your Head

Sohodolls and Project:KOMAKINO

A couple of people have raved to me about the Sohodolls in the last few months and this evening I finally got a chance to listen to some of their stuff and check out a video or two.

I *really* like them.. and not just because the lead singer really reminds me of an a rather fond ex (I had to really check their bio to make sure it wasn't her). Sohodolls Mypsace

Anyway, here is...
Sohodolls - Right and Right Again


 
Whilst I'm filling everyone's pages with more video clips I also thought I'd post a Project:KOMAKINO video I found. This is another band that  came up in the thread about 'new' non-scene goth bands recently on nemesis_to_go 's LJ. Project:KOMAKINO Myspace

Project:KOMAKINO - Exodus



 
Incidently, the Sohodolls are playing SIN in London on the 6th December at the IAMX Afterparty club night (IAMX are playing The Astoria across the road beforehand)... anyone up for a double bill? hirudo  I think I spotted on your LJ a while ago you were already planning that? You def going ahead? Care if I join you? :p

Colin Powell Backs Barack Obama

I always did have a rather soft spot for Colin Powell and never quite understood why he ended up finding himself in Bush's cabal as Secretary of State - especially with the arguements that he kept having with other more hawkish inner circle members.

The fact that you've got a former Republican Secretary of State come out and endorse Barack Obama and claim that Sarah Palin isn't ready for the White House is an enormous blow to McCain (especially as the two of them are apparently old friends).

Anyway, way to go Colin...
