For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we present an exceedingly rare — on YouTube, anyway — ’80s-era concert from Love and Rockets, filmed at the band’s Oct. 15, 1987, headlining date at London’s Town & Country Club. The 70-minute concert took place just a month after the release of Earth Sun Moon.
In honor of Daniel Ash — he of the ’80s trifecta of Bauhaus, Tones on Tail and Love and Rockets — who turns 53 today, we dug up one of the only vintage Love and Rockets live clips we could find on YouTube, this admittedly grainy, but certainly rare, footage of the band performing ‘Mirror People’ at London’s Town & Country Club in 1987.
Highlights of tonight’s ‘Dark Wave’ on Sirius XM’s 1st Wave include a left-field Love and Rockets pick (‘Rain Bird’ off ‘Earth Sun Moon’) and the ‘The Dominatrix Sleeps Tonight,’ the lone single from early-’80s synthpop act Dominatrix.
