The Mission, spawning from the break-up of Sisters of Mercy, Wayne Hussey formed this band to critical success as a Gothic Rock band in 1986. It broke up two times and is still playing today and looking to reunite the original band members.
An image of the Damned enjoying some down time. Formed in 1976 and playing their first gig as a front-band for the recently formed Sex Pistols, they would go on to be one of the foundation to Goth Rock and were the first to release a single and tour the US as a Punk-rock band. Oh and of course, the lead singer is named Captain Sensible!

Love these first wave bands 'cause there look is so dated. Need to do a before and after for Sex Gang Children who formed in 1980's in England and are said to be one of the original Post-Punk and Gothic Rock groups to come out with any recognition.
