You know how I get about things

I've just got the "fannish gene" I suppose. From sci fi TV to carnivorous plants, I get really enthusiastic about the stuff I am into. I've got a new thing to be psyched about: The Horrors!

They are a current (!!!) British band, and their earliest stuff is so much like 80s gothic punk that it almost makes me teary. Here is their debut single... I think it's from 2006. Note that it has strobe lights and is mildly gory. Apparently it was the strobe lights that got it banned in the UK. People were having seizures.



There's a preview of their newest album on their site. It's a little too trance-y and shoegaze-y for my taste, but I still intend to get the album and give it a chance. Sometimes these things seem to get better with repeated listening.

I am beginning to suspect that we were born at the perfect time - for everything I liked but missed in the late 70s / early 80s is back with a vengeance. Only, now I can enjoy it.

I enjoyed that, all yelly and stuff, thanks!

Yeah, it is great to see all the things I love from that time reinvented. Glad you liked the song.

The Horrors will be playing at the Black Cat in a few months - tickets just went on sale.
