One of my favourite underground goth/pop bands of the late 80’s, LOVE & ROCKETS, which included former members of the Iconic Goth pioneers BAUHAUS.

Here’s a great cover of their seminal track SO ALIVE given a decent rework by a band called RUBY LAMENT a little while back.  In fact you can download their whole album via that link which also includes a cover of the Verve’s “The Drugs Don’t Work”.

The reason for this post on Love & Rockets, albeit via a cover version, is because there’s a whole new album coming out of Love & Rockets covers called NEW TALES TO TELL: A TRIBUTE TO LOVE & ROCKETS.  You can pick up another cover of a Love & Rockets track via RCRD.LBL which is only up for a week, so be quick!

However, you need to be sure to check out the original version of “So Alive” and so here’s a vid to give you a taster of the original track.  Man, total 80’s!
