“1979-1983 Volume I”
Bauhaus formed in 1979 as Peter Murphy and Daniel Ash. Not long after they invited Kevin Haskins and David J to join the band (originally called Bauhaus 1919). In 1982 the song Bela Lugosis’s dead was featured in a Tony Scott film called The Hunger starring David Bowie. After four years and four albums together they officially broke up after a tour, in August of 1983. Each member of Bauhaus went on to do various projects. Fifteen years later Bauhaus reformed for a ‘resurrection’ tour in 1998. Their first all-new track in seventeen years is on the Heavy Metal 2000 soundtrack.
