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.

Released in 1982, ‘Press The Eject And Give Me The Tape’ is a live album, compiled from shows across the UK from 1981 - 82. The album features a striking version of John Cale’s ‘Rosegarden Funeral Of Sores’, a particularly spooky run-through of ‘Hollow Hills’ that out-creeps the studio version on ‘Mask’ and the punk rock fuzz-out of ‘Dark Entries’. Of course, ‘Bela Lugosi Is Dead’ appears here as well, in a luxurious nine-and-a-half-minute version. Washed in feedback and ever-so subtly accelerating and decelerating, this song is the true centre of ‘Goth’ mythology. This was mastered from HD audio files transferred from the original tapes.
