Never really was a Love & Rockets fan back when they were releasing stuff. It always felt like it it was written for a completely different (LA) audience; it passed right by me.
Recently i’ve been getting caught on their hooks. Perhaps it’s something that really does work visually as much as in sound. The great big slabs of feedback really are quite lovely… and the mix of it being playful and sinister sort of works for me now. I suspect the playfulness would have just annoyed me twenty yeas ago.
