lol, is a loathsome club kid gonna have to cut a bitch?!?
for me at the time the goth scene was getting real boring and that neon green and purple bullshit started creeping into the clubs and suddenly every fat girl had platform boots, a corset, and thought they were amanda palmer.
The unattainable, pompous, uber-cool art school girls were gone and suddenly every kid who liked The Cure and worked at Hot Topic was a goth.
So the gay clubs were where it was at for good dance music and the hottest straight girls who didn't wanna go dancing with college shitheads everywhere.
New Order, Joy Division, Bauhaus, Erasure, DM, etc wasn't "hip" or mainstream like it is today. So instead of having to put up with every skinny jean hipster-bro expounding on the life of Ian Curtis over their favorite Bourbon, you had something that nobody else cared about.
It was unique and special.
Now they use 'The The' songs to sell fucking M&M's and Depeche Mode is hocking VW's.
It reminds me when my old man saw (i think it was) Dennis Hopper on TV selling Mercedes Benz or some shit a bunch of years ago and was like "wtf, man. you sold out."
