INFO > After Bauhaus disbanded in 1983, the goth godfathers went about their separate, gloomy ways: frontman Peter Murphy teamed up with the late Mick Karn in Dalis Car; bassist David J released a solo album and played with The Jazz Butcher; and guitarist Daniel Ash continued side project Tones On Tail with drummer Kevin Haskins. By 1985, Murphy had embarked on a solo career, while Ash, Haskins, and J reunited as Love And Rockets. For their fifth album, Love And Rockets took a departure from their rock sound to produce material more electronically-based. With mixes from Kris Needs and Mark Van Hoen, “This Heaven” was the first of two singles released from 1994’s “Hot Trip To Heaven.”

  1. wasn’t aware of a Secret Knowledge remix for this, but then again, didn’t follow that closely the career of Love And Rockets. So this is perhaps a good time to rediscover!

    • Since my college days, I’ve liked Bauhaus and everything born from it. Kris Needs also remixed LAR’s follow-up single, “Body and Soul” (I’ll get that posted too at some point).
