Cemetery Confessions: A Goth Talk Podcast

This month we sit down with academic and musician Jose aka Hollow Kid, to talk through the history of post punk and goth rock in Mexico. From rock and roll being banned by the government all the way through to the modern day post punk revival. This episode is packed with information about Mexican goth music, identity, art and culture. We also review the new album from Cabaret Grey, talk about death, listen to new releases from this month and more!
