Bonerworthy Oldie: Bauhaus: Bela Lugosi's Dead
Hey there Pownzor here. I was catching up on the show "fringe" quite recently only to discover one of my favorite songs of all time is in the introduction to an episode!
"Bauhaus is one of those bands that paved the way for the modern industiral/goth scene. They have pretty much been around for fucking ever. This song although it is very simple has a really haunting appeal to it. My dad used to play this in our house for god sakes. Omonus drums some and some trippy echo effects, people would have probably lost their shit to this song back when it came out in 1979. Its just pure simple and cutting edge for its time period. Some might have even said Bauhaus was ahead of its time.Countless bands today like nine inch nails and marylin manson can trace their roots back to some of this material. Bauhaus has some other material that is worth checking out as well, they do a pretty bitchin' cover of David Bowie's ziggy stardust in fact, and the song dark entities is a solid hit from them as well. I would suggest though if you want something that is a little bit different to check out Boys. Its just a good ol raunchy goth rock song."
