In the 1800s, there was a surge in the creation of leather objects made from human skin. None of the people making the objects were considered criminals or even particularly disturbed. In this episode we discuss some of these objects, how they were made, and why.
Now that witch house and Nu Goth have been an identifiable thing for nearly 10 years, we want to reflect and look forward to what impact if any they have had on goth and the ability for subculture and youth to be subversive and transgressive in today's society. We also review the new album from Crystal Cage, talk about goth wrestling and more!
This week we're joined by Derek Rush, owner of Chthonic Streams as we tackle what to do about problematic artists within the scene, especially artists who have made notable contributions to the collective canon of goth and industrial music.
