So on the eve of Hitler’s birthday I’m pulling out old Laibach and Enigma records in horror of the papacy’s return to that old Oberammergau catechism, and I reach for the most seminal goth-rock number of all. It’s on The Yardbirds Great Hits (Epic, 1977, one vinyl disc, liner notes by Ira Robbins), and the album cover’s got reams of ticker-taped That Was the Year That Was headlines, and there the unexpected words were, (accidentally?) next to the title of the ‘Birds Gregorian high-mass stained-glass pagan-pop plaint “Still I’m Sad” (later covered by Boney M): “Pope Paul VI makes a ‘peace pilgrimage’ to Istanbul.” Eerie . . .
