Simon Pegg interview – “I’m a goth-o-phile” – plus his “personal” Goth playlist

rs_560x415-130508104524-1024.atworldsend.mh.050813The World’s End is filled with references to goth music. Simon Pegg’s character, Gary King, loves the Sisters of Mercy so much he has the band’s logo tattooed on his chest. For a certain kind of movie fan it is enormously fulfilling to see their love of this often derided musical genre, which peaked somewhere around 1989, embraced so unabashedly.

We had a chance to speak with Pegg, and his World’s End cohorts, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright, about their new movie, and it wasn’t long before the conversation turned to music.

Pegg, who describes himself as a “goth-o-phile,” was good enough to indulge us when asked to list the bands that would be on his personal goth playlist, and we’ve turned his selections into the playlist below. Besides Pegg’s personal choices for the playlist, we also included Nick Frost’s “modern Goth” selection the Horrors, and the Stone Roses who were referenced elsewhere in the conversation.
