Biography

There are two artists that have used this name:

1) Bauhaus were a rock band formed in 1978 in Northampton, England, United Kingdom. The group consisted of Peter Murphy (vocals), Daniel Ash (guitar), Kevin Haskins (drums) & David J (bass). The band was originally named Bauhaus 1919 after the German art movement until they dropped the numerals within a year of formation. They combined a number of influences (, , & ) to create a very dark but very passionate sound, appealing to many looking for something new after punk. Their sound proved very influential, inspiring or bringing attention to a whole wave of groups delving in the intense, dark and creepy style that would eventually come to be known as . Bauhaus remains one of the most popular groups of its era and genre.

Bauhaus first broke up in 1983. Peter Murphy began a solo career while the other members continued as Tones on Tail and later as Love And Rockets. Both enjoyed greater commercial success in the United States than Bauhaus had, but disappeared from the charts in their homeland. The band reunited for a 1998 tour and on a more permanent basis in 2005. The group announced plans to disband again following the release of their final album “Go Away White” in 2008.

    бедняжка мерфи видимо всю жизнь хотел стать боуи, откуда и метания от готики до синтипопа. но группа шикарна, конечно, после их дебюта в готик-роке можно было вообще не делать ничего (ну, не считая sisters of mercy, конечно). кстати, их последний альбом, который пару лет назад вышел - отстой запредельный, по-моему(

    @ketamineface I couldn't recommend any album above others but don't miss the Shadow of Light / Archive DVD. It's absolutely awesome and a great starting point, too (:

    OK so heres the deal. Ive listened to few tracks and I like them (some more than others) and I was wondering what their darkest and best album is. Can someone please shout me some recommendations as I'm not really sure where to start. Id prefer the earlier stuff from the 80's too. any recs would be appreciated.
