Dead Can Dance fandom on Geocities!

If you haven't heard, Geocities is closing on October 26, 2009. Geocities has played an important role in the history of the Dead Can Dance fandom. On Fan History Wiki, we want to help chronicle the history of this fandom on Geocities before it is lost forever. We'd love to have you involved.

We've created some stub articles at Dead Can Dance fansites on Geocities. There isn't much there, especially when you think about the whole of Geocities and how important Geocities was to the Dead Can Dance fandom. We'd really want to see the few existing articles improved to give a better idea of what role they played early in the fandom's history and for the fandom's history off LiveJournal. Just click edit, write in relevant information and then click save. You can't screw it up. (It's a wiki. Things are incredibily easy to fix if you're worried.) If you're feeling really helpful, please use Template:fansitesgeocities to create new articles so that we can get the history of more Geocitie's Dead Can Dance fansites saved.

Even if you aren't editing, please pass the word along to others in the fandom. Ask them to help us. Ask them to visit Geocities to just save those sites on their hard drives. If you're a fan fiction reader, check out some of those stories from the fandom before they disappear potentially forever.

(no subject)

Did Dead Can Dance ever do anything similar to their first album? I really like the first one, but all the others bore me (seealso: the Cocteau Twins Conundrum).

Also, did Lisa Gerrard ever record anything else with her first band Microfilm? I have the brilliant 'Centrefold/Window' 7'', and 'Summer House' on a comp, but I haven't been able to find anything else.
