Goths. I just don't get 'em.

And aren't they supposed to have evolved to Emo status by now?

If I was a goth, I'd want to look like him. Pinstripe tousers, shiny shoes... a smart coat, and not just one of those Robert Smith type messes.

He does look quite smart for a goth. Give him that. And his girlfriend is presumably house trained.

A friend and I once went to the wrong nightclub after a prolonged drinking session and ended up in a giant hall full of goths.....................we were wearing bright orange and red Hawaiian shirts. You could say we stuck out a bit!

And me!!! I ended up dancing with this 6 foot 7 one who was done up like a panda or something... or rather he was dancing with me and I kept shuffling away whilst trying not to offend him.

Scary!

And thus is the eternal question of 'How do Goths dance?' I never seem to remember - all I recall is a sort of shuffle, but I think that is a kind of 'My Bloody Valentine' shoegazing thing and not Goth dancing at all.

That's like the one I went to!!!! I don't know what the bloke talking over that was blathering about... it's just dancing.

They should teach all styles of dancing in schools these days. Being a dancing chameleon is an underated skill.

Now I watch again, the guy speaking is a total twat. I dance pretty much like that to any sort of music and in my experience most british people do after a few beers.

There's nowt worse than being one of 'them' at a club - the kind of person who doesn't dance, doesn't do anything apart from lean against the walls like a mediocre media studies teacher, sip their weak as pi** drink and sneer at everyone else who's giving it some.

Yep, sort of like the rugby boys, but at least the rugby boys go mad to the obvious pop stuff in their guarded yet temerarious way
