Biography

On July 5, 1983, "Rest In Peace" were the last words uttered by bass player David J as he left the stage announcing to an unsuspecting audience and crew that BAUHAUS had just played their final concert. Shortly after, a press release followed confirming that BAUHAUS had disbanded.

It is one of the ironies of rock music that a handful of groups, such as The Velvet Underground or ... Read more in Amazon's Bauhaus Store

4.0 out of 5 stars They don't make them like this anymore 10 April 2001
By xarquid
Format:Audio CD
Bauhaus at their most self-indulgent, surreal and pretentious. But you've got to love 'em for it! The album opens with the energetic, but the weakest track, "Third Uncle" a cover version of a Brian Eno song. They couldn't resist the literary and artistic references and the spooky "Silent Hedges" paraphrases whole chunks of Huxley's "Brave New World". "In The Night" is a reprise of a 1979 song and is the ugliest song they have ever come up with, yet it's infused with punk energy and no one shrieks better than Peter Murphy (not even Bowie!). "Swing The Heartache" are Murphy's vocals in their soaring magnificence. "Spirit" differs from the single version; a song about how the spirit present when Bauhaus performed allowed them to transcend into greatness. Now for side two, this is where things get really interesting. "The Three Shadows" parts 1-3 are truly haunting and gothic. In part one an atmospheric riff is played over and over, slowly being added to after each turn. Parts two and especially three again allow Murphy to express his vocal talents as he berates the listener in an existential piece about choices and situations. Very Jean-Paul Sartre! "All We Ever Wanted" an acoustic lament about how Bauhaus only want "to be the cream", which leads us into "Exquisite Corpse" one of the band's experimental pieces. You'll either love it or hate it. Cadavre exquis was favourite pastime of surrealists who constructed literary pieces by writing a line and giving it to the next person who wrote a line without seeing what the preceding line was. Bauhaus adapted this to produce a musical piece, just as Man Ray, Yves Tanguy, Joan Miro and Max Morise created paintings by the same method. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars The Skys alight, after all these years!! 27 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD
Interestingly enough BAUHAUS were a band I despised as an adolescent. Everyone else "Got Them", they looked cool, cool kids dug them, damn their album covers were intense, as was the birthing of "Goth Culture", BUT I couldn't stand their music, it made no sense to me, it was to me, at that time, bloody awful!!!

Fast forward 20 (or so) years. A good friend of mine lent me a copy, which I saw on his CD Shelf, out of personal interest. On first inhalation, it was nostalgic and "quaint" but after 2 or 3 listens I began to discover this album as an, almost, work of art. Its quirky and has a lyrical appeal that was wasted on my adolescent years. Murphy and co make records with their tongues so firmly planted in their (collective) cheeks it is almost surreal humour (Remember Joe Orton's Wedding?). The guitar work is interesting in the sense that Ash combines distorted, discordant (on purpose? hmm the jury's out) riffs with a clean driving bass from Jay and simplistic territorial beats from Haskins, Murphy's disjointed surreal poetry finishes it all of nicely with a caustic nonsense that all too often, makes sense! It is "Music Hall" it is Avant Garde, it is even Bebop, but overall it is well put together and produced making it a colourful collection of soundscapes that weaves between the sharped barbs of "Silent hedges" and "In The Night", to the almost Terpsichorean "Spirit", hitting the quirkiness of "All I Ever Wanted Was Everything" Sandwiched between the gnarly, caustic and inventive "Three Shadows" and "Exquisite Corpse". Sure musically it's for dum dums, Dream Theatre and The Grateful Dead They are NOT, and there won't be too much struggle for a competent beginner to learn the chords and structures, BUT like "Sweet Home Alabama" many can play it, but very few can make it work, well. Bauhaus make it work well, and then some, GO BUY NOW!
