Tones on Tail was a musical side project created by Daniel Ash of Bauhaus along with art-schoolfriend/flatmate and "Bauhaus roadie" Glenn Campling in 1982. After the breakup of Bauhaus in 1983, they were joined by drummer Kevin Haskins. The band disbanded in 1984 shortly before Ash and Haskins went on to form Love and Rockets.

In concert, the band sported all-white. Their track "Go!" was the sample source for Moby's "Go".[citation needed] They did one short tour of the UK and North America.

The 1998 release Everything!, is a two-CD set of every track, remastered, plus a radio interview with Ash and Haskins.



"Go!" has been used in the Beverly Hills 90210 episode "U4EA", in this episode the song is being played while Brandon and Emily are dancing at a downtown Los Angeles rave. And also in the 2009 commercial by the Ford Motor Company for their Mercury Mariner.[citation needed] The song was also used in the 1991 movie "Career Opportunities," [1] the 1997 movie "Grosse Pointe Blank,"[2] and the 2003 movie "Party Monster."
