Biography

‘’I’ve always thought of Love Spit Love as being a long-term thing, it was never a side project, The Psychedelic Furs are long gone,’’ says Richard Butler. And Love Spit Love have powerfully returned with a second album and their first for Maverick.

(Edit: 2/4/2010: Love Spit Love is sadly also long gone - 13 years gone, in fact. Apparently the long-term intentions were crushed by the reality of hardly anyone knowing about them, Richard’s pre-existing claim to fame notwithstanding. LSL was considerably more cerebral and introspective than The Furs. Too intelligent for the masses, perhaps, they didn’t go on to release anything beyond Trysome Eatone. However, what comes around goes around. The Furs recently regrouped and went on tour in 2009. Intentions unknown as to whether Richard and Co. will be releasing any new material as The Psychedelic Furs.)

Like the band’s music, their second album’s title “Trysome Eatone” was an invitation both dangerous and alluring. The 12 songs included ‘’Fall On Tears,’’ ‘’Hurts When I Laugh,’’ ‘’Sweet Thing,’’ ‘’All God’s Children,’’ ‘’Well Well Well’’ and the LP’s debut single and video ‘’Long Long Time.’’ Throughout, the Love Spit Love sound was sharp and moody, blending Butler’s unmistakable vocals with the shimmering guitar textures of Richard Fortus and the penetrating rhythm section of drummer Frank Ferrer and new bassist Chris Wilson.

Produced by Butler, Fortus and Ben Grosse (Filter, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Violent Femmes), Trysome Eatone aimed for the head and heart, with harmonically complex melodies, dynamic rhythms and subtly poignant lyrics.
