Hidden Gems : Love And Rockets – So Alive

Continuing this very popular viewed series of Hidden Gems (tracks which should have been hits or should have been singles). I’ll present you a track via YouTube, Daily Motion, Soundcloud or another site. These posts are for the music only.

The last real local band to make an impact on the UK music scene was Bauhaus, four lads who met each other in Northampton. Being credited as the one of the godfathers of Goth they had imploded by 1983. Lead singer Peter Murphy went solo and the other three formed Love And Rockets, after toying with the band Tones On Tail, who were so far away from their former band’s genre. Their first single was an excellent cover of the classic tune ‘Ball Of Confusion‘ and along with ‘Kundalini Express‘ were heavily requested at my ‘Indie Disco Events‘, in Rugby. With Kevin Haskins on drums and David J along with Daniel Ash sharing vocals on their releases they should really have been bigger. If you want to check out these tracks I have mentioned then please do including ‘No Time To Tell‘ and ‘All In My Mind‘. The selected track actually was a major hit in America.

So should this have been a hit or a miss?
