Nobody's Goth

Not Even the Cure

The funny thing about the Gothic subculture is that no one will admit to having anything to do with it. I like to wear black hats and long black coats, and I listen to bands like the Cure and the Joy Division (along with everything from fiddle music to space music), but I never refer to myself as Goth. I think of myself more as a Film Noir guy. I used to go out with a girl who wore lacy black dresses and had a Cthulhu emblem on her car, but she wasn't Goth either, she was a Death Metal girl.
