As we continue to march through yet another alphabetical turn through my vinyl library, we come upon a several linear inches of Love and Rockets records. This was three-quarters of the Goth band Bauhaus who stuck together after singer Peter Murphy left. They had done one turn under the name Tones on Tail before becoming Love and Rockets in 1985, stealing their name from a series of comic books.
Their second album was entitled Express and came out the following year. And like everything else they did came out on the Beggars Banquet label. There were several versions of the album, all with slightly different track listings, but they all had this one big single in common: Love and Rockets with “Yin and Yang and the Flowerpot Man.”
