Cobweb is a Sydney Deathrock party, run by James of Beat Poet and Cat Katerwaul, (who also does the monthly club Ascension at the Sly Fox), billed as “another dose of batcave, trad goth, deathrock, post-punk, punk and coldwave for Sydney bat people”. DJ’s were Cat, Unexpected Guest, Anorexic Dead and Inksucker.
We were told to ”expect to hear the likes of Alien Sex Fiend, Christian Death, Rosetta Stone, Sisters of Mercy, Las Gorgonas, The Cemetary Girlz, Frustration, Opera De Nuit, Bunker Strasse, 45 Grave, Red Zebra, Malaria!, Specimen, Plastique Noir, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Death Cult, Deadchovsky, Sexbeat, Bauhaus, Skeletal Family, Rudimentary Peni, Acid Bats, Kas Product, Fields of the Nephilim, Fad Gadget, Corpus Delicti and plenty of tracks from the new Zorch compilation ‘Zoundbies’.
I caught a ride with Brigitte and Carly (from the Dark Shadows), and the awesome Will (who goes to all the punk gigs and clubs in Sydney). Just as we arrived, so did masses of other punters, and the place exploded with people and big hair! In the centre here is DJ Inksucker.
