Waterstones Manchester Deansgate
Drawing on his own experience as a musician and journalist, Robb covers the style, the music and the clubs that spawned the culture, alongside political and social conditions. He also reaches back further to key historic events and movements that frame the ideas of goth, from the fall of Rome to Lord Byron and the romantic poets, European folk tales, Gothic art and the occult. Finally, he considers the current mainstream goth of Instagram influencers, film, literature and music.
Featuring interviews with Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure, The Damned, Nick Cave and many more, this is the first comprehensive history of goth music and culture.
This event will consist of a talk from the author and audience Q&A, followed by a signing.
