Chances are you’ve heard of at least one of the acts that Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins have been involved with. And they all come together in Poptone.

Bauhaus is the big one, but Love & Rockets and Tones On Tail and many others have seen Ash and Haskins collaborate. For their first release in their new guise, they’ve put together an album of covers of those other acts, updated for the age. Bauhaus’s Slice Of Life, L&R’s Mirror People and lots more besides all feature, but it’s ToT’s Go! that stand out. A proper toe-tapper driven along by that distinctive bass noise.
