The Non-Goth Side: The Clash

Eeeee! 28 followers! Alright, I realize that this is like nothing compared to some blogs, but I'm still really pleased! Thank you everyone for following, I believe I have checked out all your blogs (and followed, they're all great!) but if I haven't don't hesitate to say. I know I followed every blog I looked at via my followers so if I haven't it's because I missed clicking on your little icon thing over there >>>>

Ok, so this a new series of posts I'm starting, about the non-Goth things I love. The official reason is that, since Goths don't only like Gothic things, my blog shouldn't only be about Gothic things. However, the real reason is that I like to talk about all my interests, not just the Goth ones :)


The Clash were an English punk rock band that formed in 1976 as part of the original wave of British punk. They incorporated may different types of music into their songs, such as reggae, ska, dub, funk, rap and rockabilly, as well as punk. For most of their recording career, the Clash consisted of Joe Strummer (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mick Jones (lead guitar, vocals), Paul Simonon (bass guitar, vocals) and Nicky "Topper" Headon (drums, percussion). Headon left the group in 1982, and internal friction led to Jones's departure the following year. The group continued with new members, but finally disbanded in early 1986. The Clash achieved commercial success in the United Kingdom with the release of their debut album, The Clash, in 1977. Their third album, London Calling, released in the UK in December 1979, brought them popularity in the United States when it came out there the following month. The Clash's politicized lyrics, musical experimentation and rebellious attitude had a far-reaching influence on rock, alternative rock in particular.

Their top hits include: London Calling, Should I Stay or Should I Go, Rock the Caspah, I Fought the Law and White Riot

Question: (This is for part of my technology project market research, so please answer :) ) In a (gothic) cafe, would you prefer a seat which was designed to support a hoop or one which was designed to bring comfort to corset wearers?

I would prefer one that supports a hoop, generally because that's what I like, but it one to bring comfort to corset wearers would be more of a help.

In my opinion unless the chair is horribly cushion-y that if probably wouldn't be too uncomfortable.

Thanks for your input :) I thought that most would like a corset-friendly chair as well, because it's horrible (especially if you're new to corset wearing) when you're trying to relax and all chairs are designed for slouching :)
