We turned up at Talking Heads quite early, and waited around outside until it opened, watching various members of The Eden House popping outside for a smoke (uber-Goth points for smoking on the same pavement as various previous members of Fields of the Nephilim? OK, so I don't technically smoke, but I was STANDING on that pavement, dammit, I was THERE).
It wasn't long before the bar began to fill up. Most of the Southampton Goths appeared to know each other quite well. They were generally aged between late twenties and mid-forties, mostly members of the jeans-and-band-tees brigade, although a few had really dressed up.
