Named after the underground comic by the Hernandez brothers, the band made seven records over the course of thirteen years. 2023 has seen the release and immediate sell-out of a limited edition box set containing their 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, and the continued reissuing of their six Beggars albums. Vinyl reissues of Seventh Dream Of Teenage Heaven and Express came out on January 13th.
April 28th sees the release of two more reissues from their catalogue, Earth, Sun, Moon, as well as Love and Rockets, with more reissues in the series will be announced soon!
Earth, Sun, Moon: In 1987, the band's third album, the acoustic leaning Earth, Sun, Moon was released and spawned the college radio hit "No New Tale To Tell". It was described as "at once gutsy and rootsy yet also rhapsodic and uplifting".
Love And Rockets: Everything changed for the band in 1989 when they released their self-titled breakthrough fourth album Love And Rockets. The song "So Alive" was a massive worldwide #1 hit and Billboard wrote that it was the "best T. Rex tune that Marc Bolan never wrote."
