    One thought on “Gothic Rock Black Book”

    1. Although this book includes a priceless collection of unpublished photographs, it only features a couple of fairly mediocre scribbles by the author. If you're looking for a serious and in depth history of Gothic / Death Rock, this book will surely disappoint you. The writings are written in a sassy tabloid style that will indubitably annoy most readers. Of course, Mick Mercer is best known for his photographs and not his unimpressive writing skills.

    2. A funny book about the gothic rock scene in the 80's, basically. Mick is a sarcastic smart-ass, though there's a reason for it; even a fan has to snicker at some of the outfits these bands wore. Seriously. But a still enjoyable bit of reading for anyone into the older gothic rock bands.

    3. Not quite as good as I found "gothic rock" to be, but anyone interested the subject of Gothic Music owes it to themselves to pick this one up.
