Love And Rockets

Love and Rockets comprised guitarist/vocalist Daniel Ash, bassist/vocalist David J, and drummer Kevin Haskins, all former members of the pioneering goth band Bauhaus. However, the group didn't sound very similar to its first incarnation. Instead, Love and Rockets emphasized the strains of psychedelia and glam rock that appeared underneath Bauhaus' gloomy drone, adding elements of pop songcraft, folk, and R&B, as well as cryptic, self-important lyrics. For most of the late '80s, the group had a devoted cult following, resulting in a surprise Top Ten hit single, "So Alive," in 1989. During the early '90s, the group's audience steadily declined, although they still retained a number of loyal fans.

After Bauhaus broke up in 1983, David J recorded a solo album and collaborated with the Jazz Butcher, while Daniel Ash concentrated on a side project, Tones on Tail. Haskins soon joined Tones on Tail, but the group folded in 1984. Haskins and Ash then attempted to reunite Bauhaus. David J agreed to the project, but the band's lead vocalist, Peter Murphy, refused. Instead of pursuing an incomplete Bauhaus reunion, Ash, J, and Haskins formed Love and Rockets, taking their name from the underground comic book created by Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez.

Love and Rockets released their first album, Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven, in 1985; it received mixed reviews but it began to build their following. Express, released the following year, was more successful, charting in both the U.S. and the U.K. On Earth Sun Moon (1987) the band retreated to more atmospheric musical territory, with the notable exception of the alternative/college radio hit "No New Tale to Tell," which helped increase the group's fan base. Love and Rockets, released in 1989, broke the band into the mainstream, thanks to the T. Rex-inspired Top Ten single "So Alive." The album was nearly as successful, breaking into the Top 20 and going gold.

After the success of Love and Rockets, the members of the band concentrated on solo projects for nearly a half-decade. Love and Rockets returned to recording in 1994 with Hot Trip to Heaven, which failed to make any inroads on the pop or alternative charts. In 1996, they returned again with Sweet F.A., and Lift followed two years later. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Selected Discography

Comments

I saw them when they had The Pixies opening up. It was a tough act to follow. Ash walked out in a leather skirt for the encore.
The song My Drug, is a fun song to be a drug addict to. Thumbs up
bobonnit's hair plugs never came in right.
just another group of talentless arseholes from the 80's! That and my name is Barack O'bama. I don't absolutely hate a band that never came out with a bad song one!
One of my all time favorite bands
Boring and pretentious
Some psychedelic bealtesish vocals I detect.

Can't beat The Mirror People
Love and Rockets ... sooooo freakin' cool....
I half expected to see you hear Monica...... . . : - )
By far my favorite band of all times.
my god Love & Rocket held up wonderfully, didn't they? This sounds so un-80s it's unbelievable .

I loved these guys, they had such a unique sound.

Need to come back and make more music!

Have every album...want more!
I must disagree with the comments regarding the self titled release. Please listen to No Big Deal, Motorcycle, No Words No More and of course So Alive. In my opinion they are masterpieces and I still love them 20 years later.

So Alive captures the time.. beautiful stuff on Earth Sun Moon
Daniel Ash in any incarnation has always been awesome. Loved Bauhaus, LaR and ToT
How is it that Lift doesn't appear on this discography? A brilliant album that has sadly gone unnoticed. A truly amazing band and a great live show. They will remain one of my all time favorites forever.
i am a huge fan of daniel ash.i have seen bauhaus live daniel ash solo and love and rockets .i have to saythey were my fav live.
I am suprised but impressed.
Express is the best!
I saw them in concert in L.A. years ago and was so excited to finally see one of my favorite bands, they didn't let me down either. Their show was great, simple lighting. I wish they were still around.

Saw them at the Showbox in 2000!! Great show!! Great band!! Why isnt Lift listed on the discrography ? ?
who cares what years it came out, I was a little kid, and this kicks a** as much now as it did then......
the self-titled album sucked...it wasn't even close to being as good as Earth, Sun and Moon...for me Earth, Sun and Moon is STILL one of my most favorite albums ever!
I disagree Michelle - the self titled album was far reaching in scope and quality and still holds it's own when compared to more contemporary alternative music. Meeeeeeeeeee e and my motorcycle.. . c'mon, that's great stuff.
They are coming to San Francisco Jan 2010!
Love & Rockets is absolutely the best. Their music is so beautiful especially when Daniel Ash sings!
and those dates above refer to re-issue dates..expre s s originally came out in 1986. just so you know.
forget the self-titled and everything that came after. the debut seventh dream was pretty good, but the absolute best of love and rockets is found on express and earth, sun, moon. believe me, i wouldn't lie to you. it's incredible stuff, really transcends the genre and creates something magical and unforgettabl e !
their sound is the most induplicable , most far-out and crazy and fantastic that i've ever heard. whether with bauhaus or love and rockets or whatever.. except for the new bauhaus album right
Love and Rockets to this day////way ahead of their time.
Are you sure about those album release dates? I seem to remember listening to "Express" in 1989. Anyway, absoulutly love these guys.
michellecb73
They are great...I love the the "Express" album
I'm time-trippin ' . . .this is so cool!
