Day 5: Is there a local goth band or group in your area?
Not that I know of, where I currently live, I think I’m the only goth in my area, I’m the only one bustling about in Ne0-Victorian wear and sometimes Gothabilly style clothes with heavy eyeliner, blasting the Sisters in my car while my boyfriend looks on with a combination of admiration and fright at my flailing arms. As far as I know there isn’t even a goth or rock club in my current area, let alone a band. There are alternative and rock clubs around, but they are a bit far from me…
There was, however, a goth band called The Awakening that hailed from Johannesburg in the mid 90’s, I do enjoy what I’ve come across!
Silex is another South African band that I’ve just recently heard about. I like what I’ve heard from them too!
Plasticoma is an electro goth band from Johannesburg, I’m not a huge fan but it’s alright.
Hexotericka is from Pretoria but I’m not to familiar with many of their songs, they are also Electro-goth.
Day 6: Handwrite your favourite lyric and take a picture:
My favourite lyrics are often changing but here are Marilyn Manson’s Coma White (I know it’s not Goth), Lucretia My reflection from The Sisters of Mercy and Walk like a Zombie by the Horrorpops.
Day 7: 10 of your favourite goth bands:

But there are many, many more that I love as well!
