  • Love and Rockets - A Private Future

    5:09

    Thinking of your private future
    You snatched at the trees
    In the starry dark green sleep
    Thinking of your private future
    You think at the river and set it flowing
    A late fog's lifting a fast wind's rising
    So you turn to reflect on your brief life
    Session slip

    Thinking of your private future
    Cut by the scars of timeless coming back
    Realize the unreachable is nothing
    Cool winds wash down your hope and you slipped
    Cool winds wash down your hope and you slipped

    God's good to the humble
    As the devil is to fools
    Stop looking back in anger
    Cause you can't change the rules
    Believe in where you're going
    But don't lose your yesterdays
    To terrify to cry its true
    Your life is just a game

    So I need a million dollars
    To sit on mountain tops
    To see the stars surround you
    Is to see an awful lot
    I see the work of sinners
    I see the work of saints
    So I see the work of everyone
    That's ever ever been

    Sleep without reason
    Your laughing masks your love
    You've got so many scars
    How does it feel deep in your heart?

    Cause when the covers blown over
    It'll crack up your skin
    So now you're drowning your sorrows
    In whiskey and sin

    Live the life you love
    In the god you trust
    And don't take it all to seriously

  • Love And Rockets - So Alive

    4:13

    So Alive is a song by British alternative rock band Love and Rockets. It was released as a single from their album Love and Rockets (1989), released by RCA Records. It reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the Modern Rock Tracks chart for five weeks. The song was later given an aggressive yet spacey hard rock treatment when Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland's solo outfit Black Light Burns covered it for their covers album, Cover Your Heart.

    Lyrics:
    I don't know what colour your eyes are, baby
    But your hair is long and brown
    Your legs are strong, and you're so, so long
    And you don't come from this town

    My head is full of magic, baby
    And I can share this with you
    The feel I'm on a cross again, lately
    But it's nothing to do with you

    I'm alive
    Oh Oh, so alive
    I'm alive
    Oh Oh, so alive

    This drug makes me crazy
    Makes me see you more clearly.
    Oh, baby, now I can see you.
    Wish I could stop,
    Switch off the clock,
    Make it all happen for you.

    I'm alive
    Oh Oh, so alive
    I'm alive
    Oh Oh, so alive

    OOOOH
    OOOOH

    Don't know what colour your eyes are, baby
    But your hair is long and brown
    Your legs are strong, and you're so, so long
    And you don't come from this town

    My head is full of magic, baby
    And I can share this with you
    The feel I'm on top again, baby
    That's got everything to do with you

    I'm alive
    Oh Oh, so alive
    I'm alive
    Oh Oh, so alive

    What is the openVAULT you ask? It's quite simple. Music that for lack of a better analogy, has been locked away from the general public. What has happened to the musical landscape is sickening. Far too many artists go largely unnoticed. We are here to change that. To drive the point home, this will not be some best of list aka Rolling Stone. No Stairway, no Walrus, just music that should be heard. Here at openVAULT you're going to be forced off the beaten path more often than not.

    It'll be good for you, trust us.

  • Love And Rockets - So Alive

    4:10

    Love and Rockets were an English alternative rock band formed in 1985 by former Bauhaus members Daniel Ash (vocals, guitar and saxophone), David J (bass guitar and vocals) and Kevin Haskins (drums and synthesisers) after that group split in 1983. Ash and Haskins had recorded and performed in another band, Tones on Tail, between 1982 and 1984. Love and Rockets' fusion of underground rock music with elements of pop music provided an early catalyst for alternative rock.
    From the album Love and Rockets (1989).

    Lyrics :

    I don't know what color your eyes are, baby,
    But your hair is long and brown.
    Your legs are strong, and you're so, so long.
    And you don't come from this town.

    My head is full of magic, baby,
    And I can't share this with you.
    The feel I'm on a cross again, lately,
    But there's nothing to do with you.

    I'm alive, so alive.
    I'm alive, so alive.

    Your strut makes me crazy,
    makes me see you more clearly.
    Oh, baby, now I can see you.
    Wish I could stop,
    Switch off the clock,
    Make it all happen for you.

    I'm alive, so alive.
    I'm alive, so alive.

    I don't know what color your eyes are, baby,
    But your hair is long and brown.
    Your legs are strong, and you're so, so long.
    And you don't come from this town.

    My head is full of magic, baby,
    And I can't share this with you.
    The feel I'm on top again, baby,
    That's got everything to do with you.

    I'm alive, so alive.
    I'm alive, so alive.

    Lyrics:

    I'm so happy with my feet on the ground
    So happy, my head spins around
    Quite content to sit on this fence
    Quite content now a little bit older
    The mirror people one day shall be free
    The mirror people laugh at you and laugh at me
    The mirror people, know not how to cry
    So they scream, the mirror people scream inside
    Because I could be nothing at all
    Because I should be nothing at all
    I wish I could be nothing at all
    I wish I could be nothing at all
    Time goes by so slow
    When your stuck to me
    Time goes by so slow
    When your stuck to me
    Yes it's true we're all in a gutter
    And yes it's true please set me free
    The christian says
    I love love everybody
    And you and you and you can be free
    But I'm so happy with my feet on the ground
    So happy my head spins around
    Quite content to sit on this fence
    Quite content
    Now a little bit older
    Because I could be nothing at all
    Because I should be nothing at all
    I wish I could be nothing at all
    I wish I could be nothing at all
    Time goes by so slow
    When your stuck to me
    Time goes by so slow
    When your stuck to me

    3:18

    Rain bird dives through the hole
    In a broken guitar

    Like a stranded insect
    Stuck in a bowl of glue
    He tries to fly
    But he will die
    If he ever leaves the zoo

    Rain Bird, Rain Bird

    Rain bird swoops through the
    Chimney pots and rain
    Rain bird flies to the edge of a gilded cage
    Hiding in the spotlights
    Of a famous stage
    He tries to become invisible
    Whilst stealing the front page

    Rain Bird, Rain Bird, Rain Bird, Rain Bird

    When you were a boy
    You used to wish for this
    But like the cat who turns his nose
    Up at the dish
    Now that you have it
    You want to give it away

    When you had to work so hard
    Slogging for a pittance
    In a boot and shoe yard
    That's when you wanted
    What you now give away

  • LOVE AND ROCKETS Ball of Confusion U.S.A. Mix

    6:50

    Despite their previous band's status as gothic rock icons, Love and Rockets moved towards a slightly brighter and more pop-influenced sound, as demonstrated by their first minor hit being a cover of the Motown classic Ball of Confusion.

    Lyrics:

    Deep down in the city 'neath the concrete trees
    Some signifying hack is scratching backs for fleas
    Putting on their bad mouths for poor little me
    Spreading ugly lies like it's some horrible disease
    He said that I said what I never did said
    But I said that it's rare that it's over your head
    Ask me a question, then print a lie
    I cancelled all appointments having vowed that he will die
    So I went to find the source of this malitious dirt
    Having reread the words and wiped the blood from my shirt
    When I found him he was sitting high up in a tree
    With one bloody finger on a typewriter key
    Sky is gray and the grass unseen
    And you're the dumbest **** this city's ever seen
    He was laughing, shaking, high up in a tree
    But then he lost his balance and he fell down on his knees
    So I leapt on that mother my anger to appease
    When I grabbed him by the throat, he said Oh spare me please
    Sure as gullible as my name I let him go back to the trees
    And straight away the poisons flowing freely from the keys
    The sky is grey and the grass unseen
    And he's still the dumbest **** this concrete jungle's ever seen
    That mother he was laughing, bathing in the heat
    But then he slipped again and landed in the street
    Deep down in the city 'neath the concrete trees
    Nobody's seen that mother high in the fleas
    But there's a new one in the obituaries
    And it shows four stars where the name oughta be

  • Love and Rockets So Alive cover

    3:27

    The Plastic FanTastics cover Love and Rockets' So Alive on their 2011 tribute album Acknowledgments Pt. 1.

    New York City industrial-rock band The Plastic FanTastics pay homage to some of the greatest musical artists that have influenced them and their music on their new 2011 release, Acknowledgments Pt. 1. David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Brian Eno, Michael jackson and The Beatles are just some of the legendary acts that receive the royal treatment from The Plastic FanTastics; creating a fitting tribute to these monsters of music history! Let's hope Acknowledgments Pt. 2 is not too far behind...



    Industrial music drew from a broad range of predecessors. Alexei Monroe argues that Kraftwerk were particularly significant in the development of industrial music, as the first successful artists to incorporate representations of industrial sounds into nonacademic electronic music. Industrial music was created originally by using mechanical and electric machinery, and later advanced synthesizers, samplers and electronic percussion as the technology developed. Monroe also argues for Suicide as an influential contemporary of the industrial musicians. Groups cited as inspirational by the founders of industrial music include The Velvet Underground, Joy Division, and Martin Denny. Genesis P-Orridge of Throbbing Gristle had a cassette library including recordings by the Master Musicians of Jajouka, Kraftwerk, Charles Manson, and William S. Burroughs. P-Orridge also credited 1960s rock such as The Doors, Pearls Before Swine, The Fugs, Captain Beefheart, and Frank Zappa in a 1979 interview.

    Chris Carter also enjoyed and found inspiration in Pink Floyd and Tangerine Dream. Boyd Rice was influenced by the music of Lesley Gore and ABBA. Z'EV cited Christopher Tree (Spontaneous Sound), John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Tim Buckley, Jimi Hendrix, and Captain Beefheart, among others together with Tibetan, Balinese, Javanese, Indian, and African music as influential in his artistic life. Cabaret Voltaire cited Roxy Music as their initial forerunners, as well as Kraftwerk's Trans-Europe Express. Cabaret Voltaire also recorded pieces reminiscent of musique concrète and composers such as Morton Subotnick. Nurse with Wound cited a long list of obscure free improvisation and Krautrock as recommended listening. 23 Skidoo borrowed from Fela Kuti and Miles Davis's On the Corner. Many industrial groups, including Einstürzende Neubauten, took inspiration from world music.

    Many of the initial industrial musicians preferred to cite artists or thinkers, rather than musicians, as their inspiration. Simon Reynolds declares that Being a Throbbing Gristle fan was like enrolling in a university course of cultural extremism. John Cage was an initial inspiration for Throbbing Gristle. SPK appreciated Jean Dubuffet, Marcel Duchamp, Jean Baudrillard, Michel Foucault, Walter Benjamin, Marshall McLuhan, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Gilles Deleuze. Cabaret Voltaire took conceptual cues from Burroughs, J. G. Ballard, and Tristan Tzara. Whitehouse and Nurse with Wound dedicated some of their work to the Marquis de Sade; the latter also took impetus from the Comte de Lautréamont.

    Another influence on the industrial aesthetic was Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music. Pitchfork Music cites this album as inspiring, in part, much of the contemporary avant-garde music scene—noise, in particular. The album consists entirely of guitar feedback, anticipating industrial's use of non-musical sounds.
