INFO > “Body And Soul” was the second of two singles lifted from Love And Rockets’ experiment in electronics, “Hot Trip To Heaven.” This US release erroneously credits both of Kris Needs’ mixes to Secret Knowledge; however, Needs produced one remix as Delta Lady (track titles have been revised here as per the UK 12″, BBQ 42T). Also, Higher Intelligence Agency warps the tune into a dark, ambient noodler, while B-side “Coyote” evokes an excursion through the deserts of the American southwest.

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.”
