Sexbeat s self-titled song is definitive of the postpunk scene. It describes the originality, the freedom and the communal spirit of a subculture: old, young, poor, and rich a group that accepted it all. Released in 1983, the song is a generation s anthem about a scene caught between the outbreak of punk and grunge. With more complexity than punk and more darkness than pop s cheerful mentality, postpunk maintained prosperity because of its atmosphere and romance. The movement in its inception was nameless. It, as we found, has many definitions and associations. Some original members of the scene referred to themselves as punks, others new romantics, new wavers, the bats, or the morbids, for example. Goth often did not become a term until the late 1980s or, in some countries such as Peru, a label in the 1990s. Therefore, postpunk in all its variety, is deemed as the "single" word that encompasses all evolutions of the 1980s proto-punk alternative movement. In one decade, the genre evolved, grew darker and crossed borders: from Argentina to the Netherlands, Greece to Canada and Belgium to Japan. Even though the postpunk and goth timeline varied between countries, the movement began at approximately 1978 and concluded around 1992. Some regions reflected the economic challenges and sentiments towards social issues, while others relied on the individual desire to gain solace in a subculture that accepted diversity. To identify and encompass the words postpunk and goth are arduous since everyone has a different perspective on such definitions. There is no "one "truth about their timeline or attributes. Therefore, this book""is about the music, the individual, and the creativity of a worldwide community rather than theoretical definitions of a subculture. Though not a complete historical essay on postpunk and goth, "Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace" is a visual and oral history of the first decade of the scene. The team found and interviewed both the performers and the audience in order to capture the community both on and off stage. Participants of the project dug through their personal archives for photographs of their past and these are placed alongside professional photography. By combining both personal collections and professional images, a unique range of fashions, bands and scenes are revealed within these pages. "

In this book, Spracklen and Spracklen use the idea of collective memory to explore the controversies and boundary-making surrounding the genesis and progression of the modern gothic alternative culture. They suggest that the only way for goth culture to survive is if it becomes transgressive and radical again.
