GOTH A History

by | Read by Lol Tolhurst, Budgie

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Lol Tolhurst of the goth band The Cure describes the feelings of otherness behind his music. In a rough timbre and British accent he reveals insights into goth music and literature. He recalls early musical influences, such as John Peel, the pirate radio veteran who joined the BBC, and growing up Catholic in protestant England. Tolhurst's voice still reflects his joy at discovering a rare record in a French store while on a promotional tour. In a soft tone, he also recalls waking up on a riverbank in 1979. It might help to be familiar with some of the musicians before listening, but Tolhurst's history of goth is always interesting and entertaining.
