Love and Rockets

Express - Reissue

Beggars Banquet
Released 13 January 2023

Love And Rockets is the seminal, groundbreaking trio of Daniel Ash (vocals and guitar), David J (vocals and bass) and Kevin Haskins (drums). They formed in 1985 after the first split of their band Bauhaus. Love and Rockets provided a clean slate and an opportunity to plumb the depths of imagination and influences.

Express is a unique, mystical and transcendental travelogue of sorts. The original press release for the album said that "the balance of light and dark, positive and negative, yin and yang, is a recurring theme". In 2020, NPR, referring to the album, stated that their "psychedelic train ride laid the foundation for alt-rock".

This is a single black LP with a standard sleeve, remastered by Sean McGee at Abbey Road Studios

The next reissues in this series will be available for pre-order in 2023: Earth, Sun, Moon, Love And Rockets, Hot Trip To Heaven, Sweet F.A. + two more releases in October, details to come.
