Big Hair, Fishnets, and Eyeliner | A Gallery of 80’s Goth and Deathrock Culture Part II

The glorious days of Deathrock and Goth during the 80’s were so visually engaging that they bore many wonderful photographic archives assembled over the past 30 years. The sources of these visual treasures ranged from—picturesque polaroids, photo-album prints, band promos, and fashion editorials—all of which authentically captured the culture of big haired and pale faced fans of underground music. In our second Gallery of 80’s Goth and Deathrock Culture. we bring you another assortment of eye-candy—many of which are from Southend punk Steve Pegrum of Kronstadt Uprising who was also the owner of the club Station to Station in the 80s.

Also in the mix are a few band photos—such as The Gun Club from Los Angeles (featuring Patricia Morrison), along with Japanese Goth band Madame Edwarda.

Check out the various international photos below, courtesy of the Now This Is Gothic Tumblr, and pick up a copy of the book Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace by Andi Harriman and Marloes Bontje.
