1983’s The Hunger (starring Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, and Susan Sarandon) opens with Bauhaus performing Bela Lugosi’s Dead in a night club while vampires Deneuve and Bowie stalk and entice their next victims. The mix performed for the film was a brand new take that was ultimately interspersed through the opening scenes (i.e. the song wasn’t presented in full during the opening credits).
For the first time ever and through the brilliant work of Bauhaus Official Historian, Andrew J. Brooksbank, the track has been transferred from 1/4″ tape to digital media and is now available for purchase from your favorite online music stores and free streaming on Spotify, released via Beggars Banquet. The track does cut out at the very end, but the rest is presented in its entirety.
The wonderful folks at Drastic Plastic are finally reissuing the first (and only) album from Dalis Car, The Waking Hour! Drastic Plastic (based in Omaha, NE) put out high quality reissues of older, alternative albums. Of note to the Bauhaus community, they’re behind the recent vinyl reissues of the first four Love and Rockets albums. All reissues are faithful to the original releases – minus minor details like the Drastic Plastic logo and catalog numbers, all artwork remains identical to the original pressings and any included goodies (such as posters) are also reproduced.
The Waking Hour is available on both regular 140g blue and white swirled vinyl and 180g black vinyl. Both are limited to 500 copies each worldwide. Get yours now from their website here.

The Judgement is the Mirror
On the heels of some reassuring news that the Peter Murphy residency in San Francisco will indeed happen during January and February of 2018, something even more exciting was announced – David J, original Bauhaus bassist, will be joining Peter on stage for three nights only to do the Mr. Moonlight (all-Bauhaus) sets! These special occasions will mark the first time the two have played on the same stage since the last Bauhaus reunion ended in 2006. Furthermore, very limited quantities of VIP upgrades will be available for these three nights. Upgrades include:
- Access to soundcheck
- Meet and greet with both Peter and David
- Early entry to the venue
- Commemorative t-shirt
Please note – the VIP upgrade is just that – an upgrade. It does NOT include the actual ticket for the show (which must be bought separately).
