17.45 – 19.15 Goth: The scene that wouldn't die!
£8 (£6 over 60s, £5 other concessions) / Conference Centre
It is now over thirty years since a definable gothic rock scene exploded. Inspired by Bauhaus, Siouxsie and and early eighties The Cure – it generated a vast, diverse and doom-laden world, characterised by the rock of The Sisters of Mercy, the more ethereal Cocteau Twins or industrial sounds of Nine Inch Nails or Marilyn Manson. Two of the most significant figures in the story - Andi Sex Gang (Sex Gang Children) and Rosie Garland (The March Violets), plus music writers John Robb and Natasha Scharf in a wide ranging appreciation of what still makes Goth so enthralling. Chaired by David Quantick.
