Hear two tracks from the album at Richard's MySpace page.

Last time he stepped away from The Furs, his band Love Spit Love put out a pair of excellent, but less-than-chartbusting albums. One of the singles from that project, their cover of The Smiths' classic "How Soon Is Now" can be heard a couple times a day as the theme to the now syndicated TV show "Charmed".
