    This album is pure fire. 80's dream compilation soundtrack right here. Perfect. It's like this was plucked from a time capsule.

    Great album

    Dead Astronauts is one of my favorite sythwave bands. I like the male and female singers in each song.

    One of my all time fave darkwave albums.

    Fave tracks are Pierced by Shears, Hypovolemic Shock, Nightmares In A Damaged Brain and Cleavage Vs Cleaver.

    I'm going to have to give this thread a good long look. Not sure if anyone posted it, but has anyone here listened to either of John Carpenter's Lost Themes albums?


    Interesting stuff from the horror master, I like listening to them on a long late night walk.

    A little social history..
    I realize this will sound awkward and fruity to most of you, but this is the story of my youth and the times. It was the late 80s and The Cure was hot in the clubs back then. However the word 'club' and its meaning now is well outside of the definition of a club then. Sexuality was far less overt as AIDS was new and people were cautious to exchange bodily fluids with a stranger.
    The social normals were narrower than they are today and I existed comfortably outside of them in the New Wave community where androgyny was king/ queen. When the sun went to bed all of the pale freaks came out to play. Now make up and a corset didn't make you gay, it made you marketable. Boys and girls both looked like Edward Scissorhands.
    This song is the sound track of that time: (raids wife's panty drawer and make up kit)
