going to go to this I think
I still can't believe I missed their 'Don't Look Back' thing where they did the first album in its entirety.
Out of all the Creation/shoegaze type bands (MBV - who I'm seeing twice this year, maybe more, JAMC, Ride, etc), HoL are by far the most overlooked.
Thursday 11 at Scala, London, UK
has the info plus 30s clips of 2 new songs. Not had a chance to form an opinion of them as yet... they ain't Love In A Car, thats for sure
Is it just Guy whatsit and some others or Bickers n that?
The House Of Love have announced details of a U.K. headline tour in April to coincide with the release of their new album, She Paints Words In Red, which will be released via Cherry Red in late March.
The full list of shows is as follows:
5th Glasgow Arches
6th Leeds Brudenell Social Club
7th Liverpool Erics
8th Manchester Sound Control
9th Bristol Fleece
10th Brighton The Haunt
11th London Scala
Tickets for the shows are priced at £17.50 (except London where they are £19.50) and are available via www.ticketmaster.co.uk (Glasgow & Liverpool), www.ticketweb.co.uk (Leeds & Bristol), www.alt-tickets.co.uk (Manchester & London) and www.seetickets.com (Brighton).
Having initially re-formed to release their warmly received album Days Run Away in 2005, She Paints Words In Red once again features original members Guy Chadwick and Terry Bickers; Bickers & Chadwick had previously not played together for over a decade before the release of Days Run Away.
The album will be preceded by a single, A Baby Got Back On Its Feet, which will be available digitally on March 18th and then physically as a 7” on April 20th to coincide with Record Store Day.
The album will also be available as a limited edition of 300 LPs on red vinyl with custom artwork.
The House Of Love formed in 1986 in Camberwell, South London and released their first single, Shine On, on Creation Records in May 1987. Two further singles, Real Animal and Christine, appeared before they released their massively acclaimed debut album in June 1988.
The 10-track album, featuring classic tracks such as Hope, Man To Child & Love In A Car was quickly hailed as one of the definitive independent releases of the late 1980’s and was recently re-released by Cherry Red as a deluxe 3-cd version.
Signing to Fontana following the release of their debut album, original guitarist Terry Bickers would leave in 1989, replaced by Simon Walker, before they released their second self–titled (although often called ‘the butterfly’ album) album in January 1990.
Two further albums would be released on Fontana, Babe Rainbow (1992) and Audience With The Mind (1993) before they eventually disbanded in late 1993.
Having released their ‘re-formation’ album, Days Run Away, in 2005, the House Of Love have continued to play and tour intermittently since, including a ‘Don’t Look Back’ show at London’s Koko in 2007.
