Love And Rockets is the seminal, groundbreaking trio of Daniel Ash (vocals and guitar), David J (vocals and bass) and Kevin Haskins (drums). They formed in 1985 after the first split of their band Bauhaus. Love and Rockets provided a clean slate and an opportunity to plumb the depths of imagination and influences.

On June 9th, we will continue our Beggars Arkive reissue series with the expanded vinyl edition of Hot Trip To Heaven. Additional titles will be announce soon.

2023 has seen the release and near-immediate sell-out of a limited edition box set containing Love and Rockets six Beggars Banquet albums on colored vinyl, the announcement of the first Love And Rockets show in 15 years at Cruel World Festival in Pasadena followed by additional tour dates, and the continued reissuing of their six Beggars albums. Vinyl reissues of Seventh Dream Of Teenage Heaven and Express came out in January and Earth, Sun, Moon and Love and Rockets (self-titled) come out on April 28th.

The band’s fifth album Hot Trip To Heaven was strikingly different from anything previous, and has a diverse range of influences from twisted lounge jazz to ambient trance. With additional vocals by the celebrated Egyptian-Belgian singer Natacha Atlas, the album's world music influences are evident. New York Magazine said it was "hypnotic, glistening, dark and crashing." and in 1994, The album was ahead of its time, pre-dating the electronic music revolution by a few years. Citing Primal Scream’s Screamadelica, Underwold’s Dubnobasswithmyheadman, The Orb and Aphex Twin as prime touchstones, Hot Trip To Heaven spawned two singles; the hypnotic “This Heaven” and the sprawling “Body and Soul”.
