Lost in Time

Simply brilliant!

EPIC SONG ALERT: Performance


Unbelievably cool. Savage synths, vamp vocals, and ricocheting guitars spiral and twist in glorious fashion on this Tones on Tail masterpiece. Want to understand where electronic gothic started... look no further.

One Of The Greatest Bands Ever.


I don't know how this group of songs were reissued into this package, nor do I care. Tones On Tail created some of the greatest Alternative-Pop music to ever come down the road. You buy this, you won't regret it.

About Tones On Tail

Bauhaus guitarist Daniel Ash created Tones on Tail as a side project in 1981 with bassist Glen Campling, who was also a roadie for Bauhaus. When Bauhaus broke up in 1983, Ash chose to concentrate on his new group, bringing in Bauhaus drummer Kevin Haskins as well. Their style ranged from light rock to funk to atmospheric synth music. Ash became dissatisfied with Campling, and a Bauhaus reunion was planned, but when Peter Murphy backed out, Ash, Haskins, and former bassist David J, who had been playing with the Jazz Butcher, decided to re-form as Love and Rockets. ~ Steve Huey
