Classic 12"s of the '80s - Gloomy Monday

Bauhaus - She's In Parties (Extended Mix) (1983)
The goth-fathers deliver with a crazy dub-reggae-goth-rock hybrid, full of spaced out atmospherics and a lovely bit of harmonium.

Jesus & Mary Chain - April Skies (Long Version) (1987)
Brilliantly moody surf rock with giant shredding guitars. Not really goth, but akin. What a hugely catchy tune.

Sorry for no big write-ups - I'm pressed for time today. Just slap on your black eyeliner and get your goth on with these two slabs of gloominess that bookend the eighties.
