MP3: Love and Rockets
Here's a band that surfaced out of the underground long enough in the late '80s/early '90s to gain enough fans to carry them through until Ash went off on a solo career.
Taking their name from a wonderful independent comic created by Los Bros Hernandez, Love and Rockets grew out of an older group named Bauhaus.
Bauhaus was a bit more darker and gothic, doing tracks like Bela Lugosi's Dead.
Love and Rockets scratched the pop surface with So Alive. Then went back under.
Nevertheless, with both them and the Cure gaining exposure on MTV at the same time, I slowly started to find a liking for post-modern rock.
