Any band that sound good, excellent or mind-blowingly brilliant.
After the original skiffle ensamble, The Good Tea Band, who were alleged to have whipped their 50's audiences into a frenzied, hysterical euphoria with their Tea-Chest bass and banjo rhythms, akin to the eastern spiritual 'dervish' experience.
Thus they were banned by the Tempererance Society (Whitby) at the time, but still proved very popular in Staithes (North Yorkshire bohemian coastal village).
Grungy Kid: Seen any good bands lately.
Hip Kid: Yeah. Caught the Arctic Monkeys. Mint!
Grungy Kid: Were they good tea.
Hip Kid: They were the good tea band of this year, dude!

A public washhouse, ie laundrette, where goths without washing machines at home go to wash their clothes.
Gothdrettes only have 'dark wash' facilities, and are open from 11.55pm to 4.55am.
Lady Goth: Phew! You smell slightly. Too much petulia!

Smelly Man Goth: Yeah, I know. Sorry. I'm putting all my gear into a bin bag and going to the gothdrette at midnight.

Lay Goth: You putting in your boots??!!

Smelly Man Goth: Don't get dark. No one puts their heels in the gothdrette machines. They come out like death warmed up!

An excellent experience, usuaslly induced by music, especially skiffle music where the T-chest bass sound induces euphoria.

Somebody who considers themself superior to the working class masses of the UK and who deliberately goes to a naff working class pub or venue for a night's entertainment, merely to wake up thankful the next day that what they experienced isn't actually part of their real lifestyle experience.
Henrietta: Hello, Marmaduke. You look tired. Hectic night?

Marmaduke: Yah. Went incognito up to the council estate and visited a public house doing Karaoke. Smoked forty fags, sang five songs, ate fish and chips and made out with a single parent mother.

Henrietta: Yuk! You slummer.

Bank Clerk: Right. Let's fill this in. Where do you come from?

Mohammed: What do you mean by come from?

Bank Clerk: I mean that I can't let you open a current bank account until I know where you live.

Mohammed: Ah, OK. I live in Angerland. It's a county where I'm not even allowed to demonstrate my opposition to the government, and am inclined to be made to feel as though as I should hold my head in shame.

Bank Clerk: Fine. I'm spelling that - is it A - N - G - A - L- A -...
(Mohammed sighs in despair and raises his eyes skyward, whispering 'Allah karim!').
