Poptone, the new project featuring Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins, debuted in April and are back on the road the week playing shows on the east coast. The pair, rounded out with Haskins' daughter Diva on bass, have been playing a packed set of songs featuring classics from their previous bands: Bauhaus, Tones On Tail, and Love And Rockets. Ash recently revealed that the idea to reunite with Haskins wand revisit their catalog was kind of a Spinal Tap moment -- the idea came to him after waking up to Motorhead's "Ace Of Spades." He told NPR:

"I'm not a massive Motorhead fan. I just knew the singles, to be honest...it was blasting at 4 in the morning and I had this realization. This is hilarious, that cliché about getting the band back together, it was very Spinal Tap I suppose but whatever. And I just thought ‘Am I drunk? What’s going on? I’ve not been wanting to do this for a decade.’ But this thing seemed completely right at that moment in time. Boom. Lemmy, the ‘Ace of Spades.’ Who would have thought that song would have gotten me back out on the road?"
