hair story

Love/Hate was formed in 1985, when Jizzy Pearl joined Jon E. Love, Skid Rose, and Joey Gold, in a 1980s influenced electronica band called Dataclan, after their previous lead singer walked out while playing in Japan. They lived together in a Los Angeles warehouse called SoulHouse, and in the first year put out a four track EP and played a short and not very well received tour of Mexico. At this time the band had a ‘glam’ look, wearing make up.

In 1986, the band renamed themselves as Love/Hate, from a song they played at the time called Love and Hate.
