I Like This: Poptone–A side project of a side project that Goths should love

First, there was Bauhaus. Then Peter Murphy bailed and Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Hoskins formed Tones on Tail on their way to creating Love and Rockets.

Now we have Poptone, which features Ash and Hoskins and Hoskins’ daughter, Diva Dompé on bass. Their entire raison d’etre is to perform mostly Tones on Tail material as well as songs from the Bauhaus and Love and Rockets catalogue.

Poptone is on tour this summer and reports say their live show is terrific. As you listen to their cover of Tones On Tails’ “Go,” read more about the band here.
