Year: 1985

Albums: Young Limbs and Numb Hymns, Batcave (compilation)

First and Last and Always, The Sisters of Mercy

As our unlikely, small-town heroes reach the age of 16, they make a revelatory discovery: there's a goth club in town! Attempts to sneak in may be less than successful, but Nicky and Simon's discovery of a scene filled with misfits and marvels begins in earnest with their knowledge of The Crypt. Girls and booze also loom into view, with all the inevitable consequences...need I go on?
