Tones On Tail - “OK, This Is The Pops" (1983)
Discogs Profile: Originally intended as an outlet for Bauhaus guitarist Daniel Ash to record his more experimental material, Tones On Tail surfaced in 1982 with a self-titled 12” EP on 4AD Records. Fueled on a steady diet of hash and Big Macs, this musical offshoot became the psychedelic and light-hearted antithesis of Bauhaus’ gloom and doom reputation. Danny was initially joined by Glenn Campling on bass & keyboards, and, with the subsequent demise of Bauhaus in 1983, drummer Kevin Haskins, turning this ‘side-project’ into a ‘proper’ band. During their short tenure together, Tones On Tail created some of the most inventive, arresting and tongue-in-cheek “pop” music until the group disbanded after an US Tour in late 1984.

"And the air was alive,
with piercing sound and burning skies,
the horror did me good,
the magic was on my side,
and hot and cold ideas,
were running onto your eyes,
your sinking grey eyes…”
