Proto-goth

I have a friend whose son is graduating from high school. He's a great kid, and he and I both love the music of Placebo. The kid is kind of a goth - real queer friendly. I am getting my friend's son a $100 iTunes card. Which teenager wouldn't love that?



However, I'd also like to give the kid a crash course in "early goth". The music of my late 1980's/early 1990's  youth. Music that he may not have been exposed to. Songs that rocked my world. Can you think of any CDs I should buy? That way the teenager could sell them back for a few bucks if he hates them. Here are some of my ideas: 

Bauhaus
Peter Murphy
Joy Division
This Mortal Coil
Cocteau Twins
Dead Can Dance
Other 4AD bands?

Thanks for any ideas you might have!
