Ok, but occasionally a Peter Murphy shirt will implode from irony so chose your Bauhaus merch wisely if you must.

Det sjunde inseglet (Ingmar Bergman, 1957)

Ok, what Gothic band made a music video or at least t shirt referencing THIS movie?

Seriously, I know there has to be one out there somewhere… or there has been a serious oversight on behalf of the Eldergoth Cabal.
