We should have a podcast of tonight's show, broken up into four hour-long segments, posted online later this week. But in the meantime, here's a recap of our Boston Phoenix GOTH100 Halloween playlist, taking dark hitz and deeper cutz from our spooky sonic collection and tossing them into the rock couldron with a few random treats from my personal collection (when was the last time AND ONE got played on WFNX? Or hell, WUMPSCUT, even?)
It's late October, and while the bros at Wonder Bar were busy bumping club mixes of Selena Gomez, we were in the laboratory stitching together a more seasonal soundtrack to the spookiest time of the year. The result? The GREATEST GOTH SONGS OF ALL TIME, featuring 100 atmospheric tracks drenched in gloomy glory and jet-black angst.
Goth may be a solitary lifestyle, but in order to properly compile The Boston Phoenix's 100 Gothic Rock Songs of All Time, we made sure to enlist the expertise of three of our city's underground nightlife luminaries: CHRIS EWEN, JAMES CUDDYER, and PATRICK FITZGERALD. We convened here at the Phoenix, had some dinner, and hashed out the Top 100 over several hours of debate and pizza (not very goth).
