Peter warns us that "there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction" 2 Peter The "God is dead" argument is usually presented as a rational, empowering philosophy for artists and intellectuals.

Phantoms is supplemented with an incredible amount of flyer material, photographs, and zine imagery. How has the publishing process been so far?
Mikey Bean: I had the proof copies published myself, and when they came through it was so great seeing it in book format finally, instead of just reading it all on a screen. And I have to admit that even I was kind of shocked by the size of the book at first. But the amount of information in there could not have been put into a smaller book.
That said, I was impressed enough with the quality of the proofs that print-to-order online is still a viable option. The book is now available via Lulu. Are there any misnomers about deathrock, about your book, or any questions you frequently get asked that you want to set the record straight on right away?
Yes, some musicians and figures did leave a bigger impression than others did, but all participants were as relevant as the next. He was one of a few key people on the scene who made it what it was, but there are so many others of equal merit who are forgotten in his wake. Also, the deathrock scene was incredibly incestuous and an ever-revolving bunch of relationships formed between different people.
Whether it was simple friendship, romantic involvement, sexual or drug-related, each relationship played its own creative and sometimes destructive role within the scene, but it all drove the scene along. Mikey: There is a clear …ish lineage linking those three; many punk bands inspired by the likes of Joy Division became postpunk. It makes more sense for the people who were there to tell the story themselves. My own personal spin on it was that most oral histories use paragraphs by each person, whereas I chose to break it down further.
It made for much more work but reads like everyone is in the room together chatting. As it was, there was nothing already out there about deathrock that was book-length when I started. The punk market has been flooded with books, which is not a bad thing.
Who are some of the bands and performers you think are all too often overlooked in articles or histories of deathrock? Fortunately some live performances still exist. Bands like Aphotic Culture and Die Schlaflosen are totally overlooked due to lack of recordings. Few people I interviewed recalled Aphotic Culture until I mentioned Lucy Amaro on electric violin; suddenly high praise was given by most.
I learnt a lot about bands and performers that I was unaware of when I started the project. There definitely are some lost gems out there. So what were some of the surprising areas of overlap you found while researching the book? Mikey: The overlapping was an eye-opener at times. But like I said the scene was very incestuous, and camaraderies were bound to happen within such a small scene. People with similar interests connecting at the same venues, or doing the same drugs…and a lot of it WAS drug-related.
It just morphed over time. As I mentioned elsewhere, when it comes to how deathrock started, the end of the original LA punk scene is tied in with the death of Darby Crash.
On the surface, yes, but there are very clear differences between all of these films that deliver on the execution of their distinct plots. In fact, not only was King a reverend himself, but Gandhi, a Buddhist, was being referenced in the same context, but no one seemed to have a problem with that.
It was originally used by Thomas Jefferson to assure people that the government would not create its own church or religion, and that anyone was free to practice their own religion as they saw fit. The main actors do a very good job in balancing both sides of this matter building a nice foundation for the film. He combines just the right amount of slime with a gentle ounce of humanity hidden under his menacing exterior.
He may go a little overboard at times, making his glint of evil far too blatant marking him and the ACLU as pure evil , but the audience for the film will still find him a perfectly entertaining foil for Grace.
