Boomkat Product Review:
2018 marks the 40th anniversary of Bauhaus. To celebrate, Beggars Arkive are reissuing six records from the band’s catalogue on special edition coloured vinyl.
"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.
‘Crackle’ is a best-of collection of songs. Contains the studio version of ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’. All Music described it as “an excellent single-disc overview of the group’s brief career, containing all of their essential songs, from ‘In The Flat Field’ and ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’ to ‘Ziggy Stardust’ and ‘Burning From The Inside’ …it’s nice that there’s finally a thorough retrospective of the groundbreaking goth quartet” and Pitchfork said it is “a fine retrospective of the material that both Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson claim was a ‘major influence’ of their music.”
