I forget sometimes how terrible/generic/stereotypical a lot of goth music can be.

Why I forget this I have no idea. It's not like I've been listening to the damn stuff for the last 21+ years and have seen/heard some truly amazing bands and seen/heard soem truly hideous ones.

Still, I shouldn't expect more from an album called "Gothic Party Time" I suppose. Although it has got two Creaming Jesus tracks on (their covers of The Forest and Temple of Love) that I only own on vinyl so that's worth the £6 I paid for the thing to have those on CD :)

EDIT: Maybe I'm being unfair as I'm only 4 tracks in. It might get better...

EDIT2: Who am I kidding?

EDIT3: OMG  :(

I really used to love Creaming Jesus. Live they were fantastic.

Still sound pretty good in retrospect too. I picked up one of their CDs off ebay a year or two back but sadly most of their material was only available on vinyl (but luckily I brought most of that at the time it came out!).

...you know there will be a 'Gothic Party Time 2' and you know it is not destined to be any better!...who was it released by 'Ronco' or 'tel-star'? *mwaaah ha ha*....wonder if there will be a 'NOW! Thats What I Call Gothic' or heaven forbid, 'stars on 45 Goffic mega-mix featuring the Bauhaus smash hit Bela Lugosis'De-Dur-Dur-Dur-Dur-Dur-Dur-Da-Dead'.

It was released by Jungle.

The cover is bloody awful too and the back cover blurb is "At halloween there's nothing better than Gothic Music to create a spooky party atmosphere. Add some shadowy punks and you've got great scary songs for fun horror parties all the year round!"

I'm getting an image of there being a talk over track by Alan Freeman!

I paid two quid for 'Gothic Party Time' in one of the Record Exchanges at Camden. I, too, bought it primarily to get Temple of Shite (which I had only on a compilation tape done by an ex, years ago) and I think I got my money's worth, just barely, since a quid of that was using up an exchange voucher I had left over.

It's kind of scary to think that that load of crap is what you get when they're trying to compile something stereotypically 'gothic' for a straight audience...
