Sounds For Sad Souls- ŦHE LEFŦ HΔNĐ ƟF CⱤEΔŦĬƟN

Given the increased popularity in witchiness in the Goth scene these past few years, it's been surprising that Witchhouse and it's associated genres haven't really gained as much traction as they could. If I was to point to a particular reason, it would probably be that it's not a sound that lends itself easily to the club scene, with most songs not having the rhythmic beat that we're used to dancing to.

Slimelight to be demolished? Not without a fight!!

It's with rather grim, but important news, that we start The Last Kult blog- in the early hours of this morning it was announced on the Slimelight Facebook page that Electrowerkz, the building that houses Slimelight, is under threat of demolition as part of the Crossrail II plans for the expansion of Angel Tube Station. Slimelight is a singularly important club, not just for the London goth scene, but for the UK and even worldwide. It's famous around the globe and ,as such, has been a portal to the larger scene in London for newcomers for over 30 years. When I...
