When the saint of Shadow appears on the heath, this is the outfit she wears.
In Paint it Black, Gosha goes up to the heath at midnight to perform a summoning to the gothic tones of Bela Lugosi’s Dead by Bauhaus.
I’ve always had a soft spot for droney avant-garde music, and I went through a very big Goth phase when I was a teenager and into my early twenties, and these two came together in my love for this one album by the band Cindytalk.
When I was a teenager, we lived in the next street over from Portobello Road, home of the famous street market.
The character of Johnny’s friend and onetime lover, Sir Wilfred Stepney, is based on two painters: Lucian Freud, who wasn’t gay, and David Hockney, who is.
Though Millicent is a few years younger than Gosha, Gosha entertains hopes that she and Millicent might be friends. Unfortunately, the circumstance of their meeting sets that friendship off to a difficult start.
