Goth of the Week

Luka, from Croatia. Deathrock styles are awesome, and show the connection between goth and punk more clearly.

Oh, and yesterday (the 14th) was my birthday. I'm older.


  1. Happy birthday Chris! Belated. Older is better than the alternative. Back in the 80s when I was hanging out with the punkers (I was there for the music, I was they guy in the t-shirts and jeans sports a very fashionable mullet at the time) and yeah this guy is WAY too clean to be pure punk. I definitely see the the combination of the goth/punk here. Like PB & J.

    1. Oh, yes, growing older does beat the alternative.

      Thanks for the good wishes!

      Hockey hair has a long, distinguished punk tradition. My own first punk hairs were due to cutting away an ape drape. The hairstylist didn't even know what a rattail (what I actually wanted) was, though, so I ended up with two long strips to either side of a shorter (but still long) back drape. Those were some strange days.
