“The Bubbleman Cometh: An Interview with Daniel Ash”

Here’s a brilliant (and very long) interview with Danny Ash from the excellent Post Punk website.  Ash has recently announced that he will be re-visiting his back catalogue (mainly Tones on Tail and Love and Rockets material). Going on the previews, including the new version of Tones on Tails’ “There’s Only One’ above, it is going… Continue reading “The Bubbleman Cometh: An Interview with Daniel Ash”

Daniel Ash interview “Bauhaus is never getting back together”

Excellent Danny Ash interview. Wearing sunglasses indoors is damn near impossible to pull off. To do so is to, with few exceptions, open yourself up to entirely justified accusations of douchedom, poseurdom, junkiedom, and, most damaging of all in today’s culture, complete-lack-of-self-awarenes-dom. But, like I said, there are exceptions; Lou Reed/Nico, all French directors, Algerian… Continue reading Daniel Ash interview “Bauhaus is never getting back together”

Daniel Ash: new album: “Stripped” on PledgeMusic, an 8 minute video worth watching

More activity from the ex-Bauhausers (see Peter Murphy’s live DVD & David J’s new LP)… and potentially the most interesting. Danny Ash has launched a new LP on PledgeMusic called “Stripped”, on whcih he will re-visit some old Bauhaus, Tones on Tail and Love & Rockets tracks, and re-work them. Danny has produced an eight minute… Continue reading Daniel Ash: new album: “Stripped” on PledgeMusic, an 8 minute video worth watching

Daniel Ash “Anthology” review

Following on from his excellent review of David J’s “Etiquette of Violence”, Mick Mercer reviews Daniel Ash’s recent triple CD anthology. As with David J so with Daniel Ash, by which I mean…confusion. Moke and smirrors. Angles of deception. That kind of thing. Easily one of the greatest guitarists we ever have had come out… Continue reading Daniel Ash “Anthology” review

David J “An Eclipse of Ships” has landed

David J‘s new, PledgeMusic-backed LP “An Eclipse of Ships” landed this week and, on first listen, it is really good (and below are some pics). It is very reminiscent of his outstanding debut “Etiquette of Violence” which received an outstanding reissue recently. In fact all of the Bauhaus members have been in action recently – Danny Ash is… Continue reading David J “An Eclipse of Ships” has landed

Peter Murphy review, live at the O2 Academy Bristol, 18 June 2013

Bauhaus, as I have mentioned numerous times in this blog are (along with the outstanding Sisters of Mercy) the founding members of Goth.  Sure, some goth bands pre-dated them (UK Decay, etc.) but Bauhaus and the Sisters crystallised the sound, and image, of Goth.  So when Peter Murphy annunced he was touring with his band… Continue reading Peter Murphy review, live at the O2 Academy Bristol, 18 June 2013

“The Batman Cometh: Peter Murphy Returns With Goth Epic ‘Lion'” (plus 6 minute LP trailer video)

Peter Murphy (ex-Bauhaus) released his tenth (yes TENTH!) solo LP this week – called Lion.  As much as I love Bauhaus I haven’t loved Peter Murphy’s solo stuff so much but, on a brief listen this LP seems really interesting. It is produced by Youth from Killing Joke who has an impressive list of production credits… Continue reading “The Batman Cometh: Peter Murphy Returns With Goth Epic ‘Lion'” (plus 6 minute LP trailer video)
