Bauhaus – ‘Go Away White’ (cooking vinyl) [03.03.08]
The last time I saw Bauhaus was with nine inch nails. I appreciate Trent and Peter Murphy on the same bill… but it seems 10 years too late. Usually I use this blog to fire off shit I really REALLY like.. but a new Bauhaus album is just too hard to pass up. I don’t like to make mistakes like certain reviewers in certain high profile zines.
It was 1998 and I was fortunate to get a ticket to Bauhaus, even if it meant going by myself. It was easily the best of the best of the best and Gotham captured it brilliantly and with a tour come the rumours of a new album… they seemed have been rejuvinated and you could just feel it. What took them so long? Did Peter Murphy have to wait for all his inspiration to dry up before getting everyone together again?
Hardly anything sounds anything like Bauhaus, it’s like Murphy doesnt even care and becomes kinda unwelcomed and after a bit … annoying. The beats are mediocre and the album just drags on. UGH! It’s almost painful… I got all wound up awaiting a kick from a buck and it ended up being just an old mule!
