Fuchsia dates from when The Goths formed in 1987 and is based on Lady Fuchsia Groan, a fictional character in Mervyn Peake's novels 'Titus Groan' and 'Gormenghast'. The character was also the subject of The Cure song, The Drowning Man, which is about her death and mentions her by name. Cool funky bass and beautifully crafted overall.
