The Beggars Arkive label continues its Love and Rockets reissue series with a new compilation called My Dark Twin that’s being billed as a companion to Sweet F.A.
Love and Rockets’ reunion grew significantly with the announcement of 10 more U.S. concerts, upping the trio’s total number of planned performances to 16.
Beggars Arkive this week announced the reissue of Love and Rockets’ first six albums on remastered vinyl as well as The Albums 1985-1996 colored-vinyl box set.
For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we offer up this delightfully low-budget television commercial promoting Love and Rockets’ 1986 album Express — the existence of which is fairly surprising, considering it would be three years before the band’s real commercial breakthrough in the U.S. with “So Alive.”
This week’s new releases include expanded reissues of the Pixies’ “Doolittle” and Yo La Tengo’s “Painful,” a box set of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry recordings from 1982 to 1987, a vinyl reissue of MInistry’s “Twelve Inch Singles,” a collection of Boris Blank’s output and a Blondie vinyl box set.
