Since Mick Mercer’s acclaimed last book 21st Century Goth was published in 2002, the MySpace internet phenomenon has helped fuel a worldwide explosion of related music. But as well as adding countries to the musical map, the post-Goth scene has resulted in a bewildering variety of musical sub-genres. This fully illustrated book is aimed to be the ultimate resource to make sense of the chaos, covering the fields of ambient, cabaret noir, deathrock, goth, gothic metal, horror punk, melodramatic song, post-punk, and psychobilly. Packed with discographical information, web addresses, line-ups, and often contributions from the bands themselves, this is the first edition of a book that will be turned to again and again and will undoubtedly appear in new editions as the years pass.
