As the first wave of punk evolved into hardcore, no wave, postpunk, and a variety of other subgenres, a singular strand of the punk explosion developed in Southern California: deathrock. Consisting of a dark mélange of glam rock imagery, punk-inflected sound and attitude, and shock rock theatrics, deathrock could be neatly disentangled from the broader regional punk movement. A second deathrock revival is currently underway – and this is no little irony, given how small the original movement actually was.

Oliver Sheppard’s first of a two part history of Death Rock over at Souciant. If you interested in the history of women in punk and/or the roots of goth as we know it, this is essential reading.
