Episode 064: Rock Out With Your Goth OutĀ w/ Anonymous 2
(Where we bring you an hour of music that we all know and love, but some of us are afraid to admit to. Featuring special guest, Anonymous 2!)

Nearly everyone of a certain age range has a little bit of Goth lurking in their past. And by Goth, I’m not talking about the modern conception thereof: ridiculous make-up, yards and yards of black clothing, smoking cloves and doing all of the spooky dances you can think of when you find a DJ that will play a healthy dose of Skinny Puppy. To me, Goth music has been best when it isn’t so much about fashion, but about a certain sound. It took me a long time to come to terms with this, and this was compounded by people I knew in the past who were more about the fashion and less about the music. During this hour, I try to feature bands that I think got it right.

Were you to ask me about Goth music even a few years ago, I would have rolled my eyes, laughed, and told you a story about certain ex-roommates I’ve had to deal with. But something happened when I finally listened to Joy Division, and soon enough all sorts of spooky music was beginning to bubble to the surface of my records. I would be hard pressed to identify myself as a Goth, by any stretch of the definition, mostly because I tend to laugh at everything, wear way too much brown, and quote “Weird Al” a little more often than the av-er-age bear. But I have to admit, there are overcast days and lonely evenings where there is nothing better in the world than wine and Cocteau Twins, and on those days, you will find me in full-batcave mode. When I put my mind to it, I can take brooding to hitherto unparalleled depths.

I’m sure there will be many of you who will challenge some of the selections I’ve picked for this show, and to that I have no real response other than: I don’t see you making an effort. While all the artists I picked for this show many not be cob-web-clearing dance moves, roots-re-dying, excessive eyeliner wearing Goth bands, I picked songs that I felt sustained the mood I was going for. I promise: if you didn’t know The Flaming Lips were the band, would it really bother you that much? Listen to the show first, then tell me where I went wrong.

This show featured a special guest, Anonymous 2, a new KPSU volunteer that I was training during the broadcast. Hopefully they will soon become publicly known, so I can refer to them by their real name, but in the meantime all I can say is that they will be on the air soon enough, and I have a feeling they will bring you exactly the kind of show you will need to hear, provided you are a radio listeners, and are tired of listening to crap when you tune the dial away from KPSU. Stay tuned for more information concerning that.

This show was also the second 2010 Pledge Drive show for Blasphuphmus Radio, and with that in mind, I did a lot of promotion during this show. KPSU is funded by PSU, but we also depend heavily on listener donations to make sure that we can operate. (Without them, we wouldn’t be on the air.) Even though the show is over, it is not too late to donate money. Just got to kpsu.org, and you can donate money electronically. And, my previous offer still stands: anyone who makes a cash donation to KPSU (because they heard it on my show) will receive a compilation CD called Good Morning Portland, featuring live music by artists that performed In-Studio at KPSU. You cannot hear these recordings anywhere else, and in some cases, only on my show. It’s one of the cool things that we offer to listeners of our show because we care, and hopefully you do, too.

That does it for us this week. See ya in seven.
