Joseph Delaney explores the world of Techno Goth - an subversive London club scene celebrating self-expression in fetishwear to a soundtrack of industrial noise - in this illuminating short doc. 

Part of Nowness’ ongoing series on underground scenes around the globe, Delaney's film bears witness to this tribe dressed in latex and Moschino gimp masks, featuring performances from dance noise duo Naked and DJ Judith Klempner.

It also features voice overs from some major techno goth icons – Lee Adams, Yang Li and Lewis Burton - revealing that the ethos of the Techno-Goth culture is to be non-judgemental, and therefore far less intimidating than it may seem from the outside looking in.
