   NOTE: Again thanx to all who have contributed and send in those
   corrections and new info particularly country of origin. But please no
   e-mail just to say 'hey, but these people aren't Goth and never have 
   Accept that other people inevitably have widely differing opinions as
   what is and isn't Goth. This is just a list for people who enjoy
   Gothic music and would like to know the names of some other bands to
   check out. It hardly claims to be definitive or even necessarily
   accurate because I have to rely on contributions from numerous other
   people and can't possibly investigate all of these bands myself. The basic
   assumption around here is that any band on the list should be fair game
   for discussion. And no mail to say 'but 'X' belongs on the first list, not
   the second. Bottom line is I do this for _me_ and bands go where i feel
   they should go.

  Here's version 23 of the Gothic Music list.
  As always, corrections and additions,comments, etc are
  gratefully accepted. Corey recommends the "Gothic Rock Black Book" and
  "Gothic Rock" by Mick Mercer. It's mostly typical Brit 'journalism' but has
  good history sections and features on the Cult, All About Eve,Fields of
  the Nephilim,the Sisters of Mercy and the Mission. Many of the defunct UK 
  bands only recorded one single so good luck. Only bands that have actually 
  had a piece of music released by a real record company will be listed, no
  bands with only demo tapes.
