I;ve kept most of the news on the front page, and there's not really much to view here. I'm beginning to make progress on getting my web site back in order. Please be patient.
Have a happy holiday and go buy Lift for someone as a gift. We've bought 2 to give as gifts. And play it loud, it sounds great!
December 13th, 1998--Found Holy Fool tonight while not even looking for it. I bought 2, and I'm sure I'll buy more. Like the first 2 mixes, but I was a little disappointed by the So Alive remix. Only $2.99 at Tower, buy one for you and one for a friend......
December 2nd, 1998--Well, Lift is out, I love it and yet I have not put anyhting new on my site about it. I'm working to correct that oversight right now. Also ,the single for Holy Fool is supposed to be out, but I'm having trouble finding it. I can still find Resurrection Hex everywhere, so I don't know what the deal it. Even CD Now and Amazon say it will be at least 1-2 weeks if I order a copy. ***Also, check out this great Love and Rockets page Body and Soul and sign the swing petition.*** See you all soon with an update!
June 29th, 1998--
The Bauhaus reunion tour is on. Besides Hollywood, I've heard about Chicago and Seattle dates. Check your local radio station, or check out ticketmaster for info. Should be great.
The new Love and Rockets single, Ressurection Hex, is out now. I bought it and the Tones on Tail compliation "Everything," a few weeks ago. BUY BOTH NOW! They are both really good. The new L&R single is sounds like it should have come back right after Hot Trip to Heaven. Very electronic, and the single features remixes galore. I have no idea if the whole new album is like this, but we'll see. I think I'll have to re-order my L&R CDs in my CD holder. It should now go, in order of evolution, Seventh, Express, ESM, L&R, Sweet FA, Hot Trip, and now the Ressurection Hex single. Just a joke. Here's the track listing. And did I mention you should buy the Tones on Tail 2 CD set, "Everything?" You should.
Love and Rockets CD5--"Resurrection Hex" Red Any records
May 15th, 1998-
I was searching for news after hearing the recent rumours about a new album, and found only spotty information. I found that Love and Rockets are on a new label in the US, Red Ant Records, and that new material is on the way. The following is from Rolling Stone online, in the random notes section. I hear the single, Ressurection Hex, should be released May 19th. Call our local *alternative* station and demand the play it. It's been sad to see these stations adbandon the ands they once supported lately. Anyway, here's the news bit:
Love and Rockets have recently completed work on Lift, the follow-up to their 1996 album Sweet F.A.
The latest album, recorded at Swing House Studio in Los Angeles, represents an amalgamation of styles showcased on previous Love and Rockets albums, said Suzan Crane of Red Ant Entertainment. Encompassing dark, enigmatic sounds, guitar rock, psychedelic musings, techno and cabaret music, Lift is "schizophrenic and ambitious," she said.
"This is an electronic album with heart and soul," Crane said. "It's not cold and anonymous like other techno music."
This latest album from Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins also features a guest appearance from members of Luscious Jackson on the track Holy Fool. The album's first single, "Resurrection Hex," will air on radio May 19. The band has not announced tour plans yet. (Anni Layne)" (from Rolling Stone online)
