Some artists flourish after their bands disintegrate. Take, for instance, the plight of Peter Murphy. While he’s best known for fronting the legendary Bauhaus, some of his best material came while on his own. For most fans, 1990’s Deep and 1988’s Love Hysteria were Murphy’s greatest triumphs. However, I’ve always championed his 1992 release, the magnificent Holy Smoke. Although most know his radio hit, “The Sweetest Drop,” there are easily eight more tracks that should’ve been airwave staples. Even though The Boardwalk is far from the grid, there’s no reason to not head down Greenback for a trip down memory lane. 9426 Greenback Lane in Orangevale,
