Out 7th December 2018
2018 marks the 40th anniversary of Bauhaus. To celebrate, Beggars Arkive
are reissuing six records from the band’s catalogue on special edition
Formed in 1978, The legendary and hugely influential quartet hailed from
Northampton, England and is comprised of Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash, David
J and Kevin Haskins. The dark, dramatic music that they made, possessed
far more force, variety and playfulness than the ‘founding fathers of goth’
tag that is always attached to them.
Bauhaus’ landmark debut album, ‘In The Flat Field’, came out towards the
end of 4AD’s first eventful year. Following the plan at the time, the band
then ‘moved upstairs’ to Beggars Banquet, for whom they cut three further
albums before dissolving in 1983. They charted with their cover of David
Bowie’s ‘Ziggy Stardust’, they’ve been and namechecked by everyone from
Nine Inch Nails, Sepultura, Jane’s Addiction, MGMT, Interpol, Bjork, Nirvana
and more. They remain a huge cult concern, periodically reforming to wow
their legions of dedicated followers.
The band’s members continue to make new music. Peter Murphy enjoys a successful solo career, Love And Rockets consisted of Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins. Tones On Tail was comprised of Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins. Poptone is a retrospective project, featuring Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins and his daughter Diva Dompé, revisiting the music of Bauhaus, Tones On Tail and Love and Rockets.
‘Burning From The Inside’ was Bauhaus’ fourth album and was the last of their studio albums of this era, released just after the band’s breakup in 1983. This was mastered from HD audio files transferred from the original tapes.
