SUSPIRIA / Drama (1997)

A long-dead British Darkwave band with just two members. As well as being the envy of every goth band in existence for nabbing THAT name, they played dance-floor friendly gloom for shut-ins and people who prefer black velvet undies (keeps your janglies warm on winter morns). Trading guitars for programmed beats sounds dated now, but in '97 it was still interesting. It manages to stand out from the rest of the clones and isn't the worst thing to come from that scene. If you own and enjoy anything on the Nightbreed record label, you'll maybe like Drama.
