Bauhaus, Tones On Tail and Love And Rockets… Most musicians would give their right arms to have graced just one of these critically acclaimed bands. Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins were founding members of all three. Now joined by Kevin’s daughter Diva Dompe on bass, they have formed a new band called POPTONE.
Poptone have kicked off a career retrospective set list playing songs from all three former bands with a view to writing new material further down the road. Naturally, the set leans heavily on Tones On Tail whose songs have not been performed live for over 30 years. “It’s been a real treat to revisit the unique and eclectic Tones on Tail catalog,” says Haskins. “I feel that there are many people who didn’t get a chance to see us back in the day. So I am excited for them to hear these weird and wonderful songs played live again. With the addition of Bauhaus and Love And Rockets material, it will be a veritable feast for the ears!“Having already performed a handful of largely sold-out shows on the West Coast, the trio will be making their way to the East Coast for a round of shows, including Asbury Park, NYC and Boston (tour dates below).
