    I remember this band from my younger and wilder days... the riffs, the sheer energy, that voice... they were epic. That Blackout In The Red Room album was the famous one but I thought the follow-up Wasted In America was even better... They even made some great stuff after changing guitarists...

    Love/Hate at The Marguee, that must have been a laugh! Are you a Londoner, Beanofire?

    I live near Heathrow Airport, moving to Spain by the end of this year hopefully.

    Nice one, that's quite a change! I'd love to live abroad but can't really, for various reasons.

    As for London, ironically I have a love/hate relationship with it.

    Jizzy still totally brings it live. Seen them so many times over the years and the energy levels are still there. The intro to Blackout still gives me the goosebumps after all these years. That crunching E G D G is almost DC like in its simplicity but it still gets me. The intro to ‘smooth up in ya’ by the bulletboys is the same, instant bloody goosebumps.

    Saw them open for AC/DC in Toronto in 1990. Generic rock band (Love/Hate, not AC/DC).

    Mainly for health reasons. Yep, London has that effect on me now. It's changed a lot since I used to frequent it regularly back in the early 90's.

    Too right :-/

    I enjoy the 'niceness' of some parts, such as West Hampstead which is near where I live - a splendid place to hang-out - but the erosion of its character (closing of independent shops, pubs, destroying Soho etc.) is terrible. As for crime, filth and corruption everywhere, don't get me started. A cesspit.

    Hope your health will be OK and Spain helps with that.

    That's cool, I looked him up, he's 61 now, so that's impressive if he can still do it, and does so with enthusiasm.

    Amused by ‘smooth up in ya’ - a local glam rock band in the areas I used to hang-out in did a song called that (I thought it was so ridiculous!), I assumed it was their own, but I guess it was a cover then. Band was The Original Sinners - they gained some minor notoriety at some stage, played a few good venues. Singer passed away a few years ago, but I still know one or two of their other guys.

    Here in the States, we used to have a show called "Friday Night Videos" which aired on NBC channels. It was the only way those of us without cable got to see music videos. For a short time, they tried the format on Saturday Mornings, at the end of the cartoon block and called it "Saturday Morning Videos", again on the NBC channels. I remember they only played "kid and teen" friendly videos. There were no Metallica, or other heavy metal songs. They played Love/Hate's, "Why Do You Think They Call it Dope?" and I nearly fell over in laughter. I can only imagine some stuffed suit thought the song was anti-drug. I went straight out and bought the album - and fell in love with it (Black Out in the Red Room). To this day, it's still one of my favorites.

    When Love/Hate was announced to be coming with AC/DC, I was in heaven! My buddy and I were on the fence, in front of Malcolm, and during the Love/Hate set, we were singing along with the lyrics and the guys in the band noticed it and pointed at us and sort of gave us recognition for knowing their music. My buddy and I were probably only two of a handful of people in the entire arena who knew the band's material. They certainly didn't get any airplay on our radio stations.

    It's sad that they never really captured the success of Blackout. The next album was good, but it ran into the same buzzsaw that killed off the rock genre. Most people were turning to Grunge.

    Nice story, Jack B. That must have been cool being really into them, then finding them supporting AC/DC - good result.

    Me and pals discovered a lot of bands on Raw Power, a rock broadcast on telly late evening (as far as I remember - we probably recorded it to watch after the boozer) - Love/Hate were likely on that show quite a lot.

    I really liked Wasted In America, I felt it had a lot more depth than Blackout.

    Black Out In The Red Room is an 80's classic!

    Absolutely agree sir but if memory serves me correctly I think it cane out in 90’. All the same those two tunes are immense. Jizzy would sound great singing some DC tunes.

    I think the music in these videos shows exactly "WTF happened to Love/Hate?"

    They went back to obscurity where they clearly belonged :)

    Bloody awful

    Old school rock clubs / rock nights... I remember a rock night in Mliton Keynes that was brilliant, The Red Lion at Brentford in West London was also really cool.. friends used to go on about Nottingham Rock City.. Then there was Cosmic Ken's rock night at the craziest pub I've ever known in my entire life, The Iron Horse at Amersham....golden years!

    Love/Hate were the first band I ever met, in HMV, Manchester, in the early 90s. I didn't have the money for a cd (a pal taped Blackout for me) so they signed my schoolbag!

    I remember hearing that Jizzy Pearl 'crucified' himself on the Hollywood sign, and had to be rescued.

    Had a bit of a listen to some of the album again yesterday after maybe 25 years, yikes, the lyrics to Rock Queen haven't dated too well... Makes Squealer look like a hymn.

    I read about that, and amusingly, apparently no-one really noticed as quickly as expected, so he stayed up there much longer than planned!

    They must have started out as a really sleazy glam band - I mean, "Jizzy Pearl" - so embarrassing. But a great singer and frontman, and a great band.

    Watch Stevie as a 1975 Malcolm clone:



    Stevie suffers from the same problem Malcolm had; Always way too low in the mix (or he really played at half volume..)

    I remember an 80s band called Love and Rockets but don’t recall Love & Hate. Will give them a listen...

    I loved their first two albums. I met them once and they seemed alright. I thought then and still think it now, that if they had come out three years earlier they would have been big.
