Book Of Love

Book Of Love

Profile:
American synth-pop band formed in 1983.

Friends since high school, Ted and Susan Ottaviano (who share the same last name but are not related) initially worked musically with Jade Lee, Susan's classmate at the Philadelphia College of Art, in the early 80s. In 1983, the trio began recording as Book Of Love; the following year, Ted recruited New York’s School of Visual Arts fellow student Lauren Roselli to round out the quartet.

Yep also saw them with Depeche Mode Black Celebration Tour, I caught one of the Roses thrown into the audience but that has long disappeared. BOL was very ahead of there time when they first came onto the scene and they had a very big sound.

Saw the band as support from Depeche Mode. Nice evening in Rüsselsheim...

I didn't realize this until I put this CD in, but if anyone is familiar with the movie "Planes, Trains, Automobiles", Modigliani is the "background" music to the movie. No vocals-just the basic tune. They use it occasionally throughout the movie, during the "emotional" moments.
