:P It couldn't have been completely misspent if you had an electric blue mohawk! I added a touch of blue for awhile, but kept it mostly blue-black. I miss my mohawk, but probably wouldn't work out too well in the office. :D The lady friend is my ex-fiancee, she's always had great hair. Typically heavily influenced by Siouxsie Sioux (but I suppose that almost goes without saying).

About Brian/Pinon's acting methods, I think yours is a fair assessment, though Pinon hammed it up pretty nicely in City of Lost Children playing like a dozen versions of himself.

Oh, and yes, Bauhaus. Goth Rock royalty up there with The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Sisters of Mercy, and Christian Death. I got a chance to see them a few years ago for the first time when they were touring for their last album 'Go Away White'. Long story short, I spent a lot of money for the tickets only to get there so late that we only caught Bela Lugosi's Dead. :sigh: Daniel Ash still looked great (can't say the same for Peter Murphy).

'bela lugosi's dead' .... sigh .... such memories :D

say, you ever see siouxsie and the banshees live?  awesome, just awesome.

how about the cure live?  they did some amazing shows, despite their late exploration of popland.  funny, I was listening to them this morning in my car ... turned it up so loud I quite forgot where I was heading :bounce_pinka:

Great! Music is one of my favorite subjects. :D Not surprised to see folks who share similar music interests also having a love affair with Lexx.

I wish. But no, unfortunately not. I'm mad in love with Siouxsie.

hehe. They'll do that to you. Yeah, I saw The Cure once. I love The Cure, but I thought the show was a bit underwhelming. Bob just had no energy it seemed. He was kind of going by the numbers or something. The girl in my picture there is absolutely devoted to The Cure though and has seen them live countless times. I think I just saw a bad performance is all. :P

Haha. Yeah, I got stuck with, what my ex-fiancée affectionately calls him, Fat Bob. Simon Gallup looked great though and was really into it.

lol. yeah, true. For what its worth, I think Siouxsie is still a babe for 187. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vV8UVusmMWc

Of course, of course. :D

You are correct, sir. :P I love anything and everything that is, as I like to call it, askew. Both Lexx and goth music fit that quite nicely. Slightly macabre with a smidgen of whimsy. Two of my favorite things!

Love the deathhawk, by the way. :c030a:

Yep. Exactly. For me, the weirder the better. Macabre is fun too.

:D Thanks. Wish I still had it. Someday, someday.

I loved Lords of the New Church as well, Stiv Bators was the Man ! Of course, this was all before I got into black metal, hehe.

:2567:

Rozz William's Christian Death was wonderful. Incredibly creative. They were really the archetype for a number of bands that came later, and don't get probably as much respect as they should have. Never got too into the later Valor Kand version of the band though. The Cure are a bit more mainstream especially the later stuff, but you should check out their early albums like Seventeen Seconds, Faith, and Pornography (Faith being my personal favorite). Quite a bit darker than the stuff that came out later, but if you're more into black metal now, it may not suit you.

You're right, Stiv Bators rocked, I love Lords of the New Church. I also really liked his previous band Rocket From the Tombs, which split and gave us the Dead Boys, and Pere Ubu. This is all Cleveland based punk stuff, and is pretty close to my current neck of those woods, though I grew up on the East Coast during a lot of this, and was probably too young to know about it anyways.


Ah the Dead Boys, one of my faves. Back in the 80's I worked for a couple different record labels and Goth/Punk trend was very hot. My fave at the time was Johnny Thunders and even the New York Dolls, even though they were sort of glam, but they could rock a house. I still have some JT bootleg discs that have killer stuff on them. I saw him live in Memphis and he kicked ass. I liked Daniel Ash and Peter Murphy as well, but Dali's Car was a bigger fave and some of the other early trance/Goth groups as well. I had a Christian Death pic disc signed by Valor before he killed himself, but I have since sold that.

The Ska stuff is also killer, I loved English Beat, Dave Wakeling's solo stuff, Ranking Roger, Madness, Gang of Four, you name it. Pretty much anything that was on the 'Urgh a Music War' album was a fave of mine. Oh, also, the Cramps, big collector of their early stuff, since I worked for IRS-MCA at the time. I still have some rare CD and video stuff, including that live performance they did at the mental hospital..*wink*.

Wow! Very cool. I'm a huge New York Dolls fan. Heck I love all of that pre or proto-punk glam, and experimental stuff. Suicide, Velvet Underground, Chrome, The Stooges, Bowie, Talking Heads, etc... But I could listen to the NY Dolls on repeat for days. Honestly I've never delved much into Johny Thunders later catalog... I really ought to. I mean, I've heard a little bit of the Hearbreakers stuff, but not that much really.

I have Dalis Car album someplace in a stack of albums at my parent's home. I haven't listened to it in awhile... I'll have to dig it out for a spin, and see if it grows on me.

I think you mean, before Rozz killed himself. Though I'm sure some fans wish he had, Valor is still very much alive as far as I know. Too bad you still don't have that pic disk... I'd think of buying it from you. :)

I like a lot of the ska stuff too. English Beat and Madness are faves, but I don't really know their discography very well. I adore early Gang of Four though. Entertainment! is probably one of my favoritist albums of all time. I'm also a big fan of the Cramps. Broke my heart when Lux Interior died... never got a chance to see them. I've seen that video of the mental hospital someplace. Might be on a tape or DVD I own... or maybe it was just a Youtube video... I can't remember. Pretty wild.

So do you still work in the music industry?

Suicide! Good gravy, I haven't heard them mentioned in eons. Love Ghost Rider and Alan Vega is a trip. I'm fascinated by the music from that era, the whole No Wave thing. I've seen a couple of good documentaries about it. I love the idea of people living their art. I'm also a huge Bowie fan. And the Cramps and the Stooges... pretty much everyone you guys mentioned. :D Ooh, and the Clash. And X!!! Exene and John Doe had some, shall we say, unique harmonies, and I really dug her whole '20's vamp look.

 Excellent taste, people!

Yep, I dig the Specials too. Like those other 2 Tone ska bands, I'd probably be able to pick them out in a rotation of music, but I'm not real intimate with their catalog. I don't think I ever owned a Madness or a Specials ablum... I like that sound, its just not a genre I got much into with the exception of the later punk infused stuff like Operation Ivy. I'll have to pick up some of the early stuff though, I'm always looking for new (to me) music to listen to.

omg ... the cramps!  this is turning out to be quite a ride :D

hehe. Do you listen to any of this stuff anymore? If not, what are you into now?

@adrift, checking out your youtube presently.  get back to you on 187 year old rock chicks :P


Yeah, its not really the best quality video, but she's still got her figure. That song is off her latest solo album... I think it came out in 07. I haven't picked it up yet...
Siouxsie's still got sass too, apparently she was at some sort of party a few years ago... I think it was for Debbie Harry, and Paris Hilton plopped down next to her talking on her cell phone while people were making speeches, and reportedly Siouxsie says to her something like... "Turn off that #$@*% cell phone, you spoiled rotten little brat. This isn't about you." "Who invited this silly cow, anyway?"

Yeah, me too. No Wave was a weird beast. Suicide was probably the first act in that genre (if you could call it a genre really) and probably the one I gravitate to the most. A lot of the other No Wave output is hit and miss for me. I'll listen to it for nostalgia or educational's sake, but some of it can be hard for me to really get into. Lydia Lunch's Teenage Jesus and the Jerks stuff is good, and I like the Contortions, and DNA, but outside of Suicide I probably don't listen to a whole lot of it. I wrote Nick Zedd, who made some bizarre No Wave films in that period a few times. I had some questions about some words he coined. Nice guy.

I've seen a couple of good documentaries about it.

Yeah, I saw one recently too. It had some modern bands in it. I did't really care about the modern stuff, but the history and interviews with the older artists were pretty awesome.

I love the idea of people living their art.

Absolutely. I always get jealous, and a little angry at myself for not being more creative when I see others doing it so well.

I'm also a huge Bowie fan. And the Cramps and the Stooges... pretty much everyone you guys mentioned. :D Ooh, and the Clash. And X!!! Exene and John Doe had some, shall we say, unique harmonies, and I really dug her whole '20's vamp look.

Yep, I love all of that stuff too. And the 20s stuff is very classy.

Excellent taste, people!

Likewise :D

Wow, lots of folks here with great taste in music. Speaking of the Velvet Underground, I got a chance to interview John Cale at the Empire theater in Dallas back in the late 80's and he autographed all of my LPs that I brought and even signeds the VU bootleg box set of vinyl I'd brought to show him, since I heard he collected his own stuff. He was great, and VERY generousl

Not in the music industry any longer, 14 years was enough. :)

If you missed the Cramps, I have tons of photos I took of them onstage. It's such a shame about Lux, I had such a mad crush on him. He used to do 'special' poses onstage when I was filming, and would come down to the end of the stage I was at and made sure I got great shots. What a sweetheart.

After I get back from work tomorrow, I'll dig some pics out of my more fave concerts and post pics of them. In the meantime, visit my Facebook page since I have a bunch of pics of me with various musics acts, including Iggy Pop, and some other interesting people. It's listed as mayaxiong on FB.

I have some rare concert pics of Gary Numan, the Alarm, REM, Iggy Pop, the Cramps, and a bunch of metal bands from the late 80's to early 90's, like Megadeth and King Diamond.
