Interview: Amanda Palmer

By DANIEL BROCKMAN  |  September 25, 2008

Or the dude from Dead Can Dance, who sounds like Neil Diamond half the time.
Yeah!  But it's also a lot like "punk"— that term has just been bandied about, and it's much more about fashion than about a genre. And the bands and the artists that are literally saying, "I'm going to tap into that crowd," like Voltaire or Switchblade Symphony, or, what's that fucking band, oh yeah, the Cruxshadows! The goth band, they are willing to go up there and say, "We are a goth band, you are goth fans!"

It's like, I dunno, the metal equivalent would be like Manowar I suppose.
Absolutely. They know who they are, they know who their fans are, and that's the job. But one thing that's really important to me, though, is that I not alienate the goth fans. Because I love that they love the Dresden Dolls—

And they'll grow out of those other bands, but not you guys!
I would hope so! I would hope they'd stick around, and that as I evolve and they evolve, we'll all hang out together.
