Found Vinyl: Rosemary's Baby - Love Songs by Rosemary's Baby

I cannot find much information about this 1985 release from the industrial, experimental band Rosemary's Baby.  The first thing that really drew me to it in the first place is the cover of Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate.  At first i thought that maybe "Love Songs by Rosemary's Baby" was some sort of bootleg of music from the film or some weird Polanski audio.  But no, it's actually a decent mid-80's electronic/industrial album.  Listen to the slightly grooving, mildly menacing "See Woman See Human" below.

"The Power of Love" moves in a much different direction.  The song screeches and buzzes for fifteen minutes.  A collage of feedback, noise, drone, strange sounds, and ominous hum.  Listen below.

Why am i just finding out about this record now?  I got into Coil and Throbbing Gristle back when i was in high school, and Rosemary's Baby would have been a welcome addition.  For fans of industrial, experimental, or just weird music, find this record.
