Growing Old Gothfully

A fascinating piece on growing old and staying Goth from the Guardian’s music critic, Alexis Petridis

Goth for life | Music | The Guardian.

As it turns out, it it possible to stay involved in the music which you’ve always loved as you get older and not have to worry a jot about what other people think – who knew?  I personally love the idea of the more stately Goth, so this feature’s notion that there’s a covert UK middle class largely comprised of former batwing jumper wearing, flour-covered, snakebite and black drinking teens who’ve segued into professional life and jettisoned none of their love of music is quite a delight.

Show some respect to the systems administrator helping you with your PC – he might well be spending his weekends DJ-ing at the alternative club you hang out in.
