  • Bauhaus

    The dawn of the gothic rock movement can largely be traced to one nine-minute single, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead,” by one Northampton band, Bauhaus, in 1979. With its dark, foreboding atmosphere, cold and jagged guitars, minimal three-note bass line, and funereal lyrics about bats, bell towers, and “dead flowers bereft in deathly bloom,” the song laid the blueprint for this new “gloom and doom”-obsessed offshoot of post-punk. Unique to Bauhaus, however, was the incorporation of Krautrock, glam rock, and dub. Founded in 1978 by former art students Peter Murphy (vocals), Daniel Ash (guitar), Kevin Haskins (drums), and David J. (bass), Bauhaus released four albums before breaking up in 1983. These were In the Flat Field (1980), Mask (1981), The Sky’s Gone Out (1982), and Burning from the Inside (1983). Bauhaus reformed briefly in 1998 and released the live album Gotham, reunited again in 2005 to tour, and released its final album, Go Away White, in 2008.
