“The 1987 Goths are a brazen bunch who openly admit to liking Free, Bad Company, Alice Cooper and Jimi Hendrix. The modern Goth bands are primarily The Cult and The Mission (whose lead singer Wayne Hussey is even a sex symbol). For boys and girls long hair is essential - as are tassles, leather, jewellery, henna, ribbon and studs. Dippy Hippy nonsense is eschewed, but so is the androgenous sexual flaunting of the early 1980s. The 1987 Goths frequent The Crypt, Kit Kat (again under new management), Alice in Wonderland, Sacrilege and Clash City. This is rock ‘n’ roll with no strings attached; just hair.” | i-D Magazine, April 1987
2015 was an interesting year. With ups and downs, to meeting new people and saying goodbye to friends, it was a year that marked great change. I’m back in the Bay, back to my roots and I look forward to what’s in store for me. Who would’ve thought that one day this little pocho Bay kid, with roots in the Mission and raised in Richmond, would’ve graduated from UCLA. I look forward to the new year with arms wide open. I hope to hug friends back in LA and catch up as if I never left.
