Blood And Roses - enough is never enough
"Blood and Roses were one of the most caustic UK gothic deathrock bands ever to be overlooked. They had strong guitar hooks and vocals that drip with seductive morbidity. Extremely dynamic, they were one of the best goth punk bands. Their guitarist was extremely talented, and they often had keyboards added into the mix. The songs could be slow and brooding, or fast and aggressive.
Blood and Roses covered songs from John Carpenter's soundtrack work, some of the most modernly creepy soundscapes to be included in horror/sci-fi movies in the eighties, that make for perfect deathrock instrumentals.
Guitarist Bob Short and Dave Roberts (Sex Gang Children) grew up in the Kill Your Pet Puppy collective (an anarchist/anti-vivisection group) in the 70s. Lisa Kirby, the singer, also did the album artwork for most of the Blood & Roses records, including the illustration for "(Some) Like it Hot".
