One of the big things from back before rave came along was goths. Essentially goth was a response to advances in hairspray technology and the invention of snakebite.
Here’s a reminder of how crap they were. Superb pathetic dancing in a Phoenix Nights style club with really bright lights like you get at a proper ceilidh.
Your modern goths are not as serious. Nowhere near as skinny as 80s goths who all had those spindly preying mantis legs that you could only get from a truly dedicated amphetamine habit.
In the 80s it was quite common to lose your virginity to a goth. We always wondered what proper goths did on hot summer days. Did they hibernate?
