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 are kicking off with 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, the songs of which have not been performed live for over 30 years! “It’s been a real treat to revisit the unique and eclectic Tones catalog” Kevin Haskins said, “I feel that there are many people who didn’t get a chance to see us back in the day and 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!”
Poptone begin with two sold out shows in Los Angeles in mid April, and then continue on through North America with plans to go International, later on. For show announcements, merchandise and links to tickets please visit:
