seems someone has tried to change what it says slightly, but for a while it very clearly said "sex gang children" Twisted Evil Mr. Green

and the cult is written on the post on photo '2 Laughing

I see you a Sex Gang Children graffiti and raise you an ex-abode of Our fearless leader! himself. About 500 yards (as the crow flies) from my house to Village Place.

Well, it's very dark at my office, and I do have a church outside my window.


But Goth? Nah... Just the music played here.... Razz

Glasgow's goth credentials don't extend very far beyond Ian Astbury (*sigh*) and his brief stay (or should I say reign) here in the late 70's.

Strawberry Switchblade, polka-goths extraordinaire are from here I believe.

And the Cocteau Twins are only 30 miles or so up the road in the royal s**t that is Grangemouth.

It rains a lot. That's quite goth, innit?

It is quite goth where I live. Siouxsie and the Banshees played down the road "back in the day" at a place called The Village Inn in West Runton (Norfolk) and so did The Damned. Dave Vanian and Patty go to stay at the Links Hotel in West Runton every so often. I know that because a friends landlord works there and has seen them.
I know quite alot of old goff types in my town, so if you know the right people it's pretty good if you ignore all the Doom Cookies.
I've got pretty good goth credentials too

Throbbing Gristle - and therefore Industrial Records - kicked off in dodgy old Kingston-upon-Hull in a house we've all popped past 'nochalantly'. Von's Mob played here a few times back in the eighties, too, but I don't think the city has ever produced well known artists. Probably they denied their heritage.

Pretty s**t, to be honest...but at least I'm not too far from Leeds or Whitby.

here where I live, any goth thing/person is very rare !!!

The only goth I see around here is maybe my mom at 03:45 at night going to the toilet * SPOOKY *

Not much out here in Rotterdam, I think i'm almost the only one out here.

There's a surprisingly large number of goths in San Diego... but not half as cool as we were back in the day, so they don't count.

What a snob I am Laughing

If Goth is hanging around outside your town's pikiest shopping centre waiting until you're old enough to get served in MacDonalds then Southend is truly Goth central.

Otherwise I don't think it counts.

As for my immediate surroundings, I'm halfway between the Mosque and the Greek Orthodox church, with a big cemetery a couple of streets away. And we have a couple of Albanians families in my street.

Easily the best question on here for ages.

Great Preston - possibly the least goth village in the entire Leeds district.

BUT we get some outstanding sunsets - I'll post pics when I get home. They are more goth than hell itself.

I think only half of the HL members can understand what's written here, all the rest take a look at the luverly pictures.

Not as much as goth, but very picturesque, my lil' town callèd Lier....

And our Zimmer Tower and the Big Church are world-famous! Mr. Green

I love to live here...

Somewhere round the back of the Rhino's ground in Headingley overlooking the railway, there used to be a house with "Rise And Reverberate" on it. And that's before we get to the house painted purple with the Batman logo on the satellite dish... Rolling Eyes
