SUNGLASSES AFTER DARK: Self-titled: CD

May 26, 2008

This is a nearly complete discography from an ultra obscure U.K. goth band circa 1983. Discs like this make me happy. I like knowing there are people out there doing their best to make sure awesome music like this doesn’t disappear. It’s reckless, wild goth with touches of rockabilly. There’s an impending sense of dread in the screaming guitars and off-kilter vocals, but a kind of fun dread, like when you’re being chased by a zombie and you know that your life might end, but you just made out with a super hot girl so you still feel like things are going okay for you. You figure there’s really no better time to have your brains eaten.
