Daniel Ash & Kevin Haskins of Love & Rockets, Bauhaus, etc. form POPTONE, touring this spring
Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins have been playing music together for almost 40 years, first with Bauhaus, then Tones on Tail, and then Love and Rockets. They're now playing favorites from throughout their career as POPTONE. (The group is rounded out with Diva Dompe on bass.) The band will be touring this spring, currently only West Coast dates have been announced. Those are listed, along with some classics from Tones on Tail and Love & Rockets, below.
It does seem a shame that Kevin Haskins can't pull his brother David J back into the fold for a full Love & Rockets reunion, which is something I'd personally go see. Meanwhile, Tones on Tail's '80s hit "Go!" was used -- in rerecorded form -- in the trailer for the new Power Rangers movie.
