Rogov delivers a timeless cautionary tale with his new recording of Love Is A Killer — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
The veteran Canadian artist and former frontman of ’80s rockers Arkitex reteamed with long-time friend and Canadian collaborator Stacy Heydon — former lead guitarist for David Bowie and producer of Teenage Head, Long John Baldry and Sheriff — to revisit the evergreen track.
“I wrote Love Is A Killer back in 1978, and recorded my first album in 1979,” Rogov recalls. “It was at the end of the punk movement, ushering in the new wave. Some say I was ahead of my time. I just did and went where my compass directed. I can’t add much to that. After all this time, Love is a Killer — and its sentiment — struck us (just) as insightful and urgent. The subservient quality to love is our willingness to make unquestioning sacrifices for the desired well-being, and transformation into slaves to what we love.”
