The Beginning and The End




A lot of people would probably disagree with me, but I think Bauhaus is one of those examples that the whole is not always greater than the sum of its parts. As much as I like them, I always thought that Peter Murphy and Love And Rockets were better on their own. Maybe it's just that the heyday of their respective "solo" careers coincided with my formative music years, and I only heard Bauhaus through the rearview mirror. Whatever the reason, I'd take "Yin And Yang The Flowerpot Man" or "Cuts You Up" over anything the four of them recorded together. Although I do have to say that their concert at The Tabernacle in Atlanta on their first reunion tour 10 years ago was absolutely amazing.

Bauhaus will be releasing a new "farewell" album, Go Away White, on March 4. You can listen to one of the new songs, "Black Stone Heart," courtesy of Entertainment Weekly
here. As much as it pains me to say it, I'm kinda underwhelmed. I hope the rest of the album is better than this.

So that's how it ends, this is how it began...

Bauhaus - "Boys" (mp3) from the Bela Lugosi's Dead single

Also, am I the only one who is amazed that David J. doesn't seemed to have aged at all in the past 30 years?
