Goth band HAUNTED HAUS and 80's revivalists.

I wanted to show off a fun video by the band Haunted Haus. I wish I had discovered this band a while ago.  This video is from their seminal 1988 album "Goth As Moff"  The song is called"Sad Party" that is kind of a takeoff from fun goth videos back in the day. I talked to one of the dudes in the band who told me he eats fruitarian style which is rad! Love to other vegans :) He filmed the video with vhs and it really takes me back to 80's 90's era. It was a fun watch. They did a throw back to the 80's satire video that was so fun to watch. I love the weird, grainy footage and the chorus will be stuck in my head lolz if you are an alternative like me who does not take yourself too seriously then you might enjoy this band and video. Check their youtube out here: HAUNTED HAUS

Other tracks you might dig are Goth Forbid,

Here is a link to their facebook as well: Haunted Haus facebook

If you are interested in purchasing their album here is their bandcamp: ALBUM

I want to talk about other 80s revivalists. If you happen to be a goth or alternative person who is obsessed with that era I'd love to get to know you. There is something grungy, dangerous, glam and wicked about that era. I grew up as a kid and always admired all the punks and goths I met. I aspired to be like them and I loved bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure and many more. I hope this post can inspire some of you to get your best 80's on. I love the fashion, the style, the diy, the music, almost everything about that era. If you search on instagram you can find a plethora of young and old who are still stuck on the 80's. With the resurgence of badass Spielburg-esque gothic style 80's shows like Stranger Things it is a sign that this era is not dead. I love watching elder goths talk about their experiences on youtube.

I love 80's revival bands :D and the 80's of course. Here is a pic of me dressed all 80's inspired:

Shop Punk Rave!

Punk Rave is an awesome gothic shop with punk, Gothic Lolita and I first discovered them while shopping online. One of the really beautiful gothic pieces I own is from Punk Rave. Their shop is unique and their clothing is well made and can easily fit into many different goth subculture styles. It is hard to find gothic clothes sometimes that I like at certain shops but I have always loved their selections. They have some really lovely pieces that I can easily incorporate into my wardrobe.

Some of my favorite gothic dresses from Punk Rave:

Perfect dress for the club. 

This dress has a very romantic feel to it. 

I love the variety of dresses that they have in the shop that can fit with any mood. 

They also have some amazing gothic jackets in the shop.  

Go check out Punk Rave. Happy shopping! Let me know what some of your favorite pieces are.
