**BOOK of LOVE** - Seattle Debut , Thursday JUNE 25th

Because in the `80s even Goth girls liked to smile now and then at the discotheque, there existed a band called Book of Love. Hearing a Book of Love song like “I Touch Roses” or “Boy” after the blood curdling “Stigmata” or the macabre “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” was like being smacked in the head with a sun beam. Music so fearlessly melodic and optimistic rarely parted the clouds of gloom, but somehow a synth band from Philadelphia did it often.Book of Love were formed in the early `80s by arts students Ted and Susan Ottaviano. They are neither related or married. Susan was the lead singer and her sweet but generally expressionless vocals became the band’s signature. Ted handled songwriting and guitars, contributing a vocal here and there. Joining them on keyboards and vocals were fellow students Lauren Roselli and Jade Lee.
The angelic sound of bells ringing out over a skip-along beat heralds the classic “Boy”. This track began drawing the attention of DJs and deal makers in New York in 1984. Sire Records signed the band and by 1986 Book of Love released their first album. Book of Love , their debut, remains an essential New Wave album with the glistening “Boy” joined by the equally bubbling dance hits ” I Touch Roses”, “Modigliani (Lost in Your Eyes)” and “You Make Me Feel So Good”. Book of Love would release four albums in their lifespan, dating from 1986 to 1993.
