ok, here’s one of my bauhaus records..actually it’s an ep. i’m gonna cut and paste what wikipedia says about them, they sum it up really well. but first..if any goth kid today doesn’t know about bauhaus they are posers…..i put the you tube of “telegram sam” below, one of my favorites of theirs….anyway…this is what wikapedia says about bauhaus …..Bauhaus were an English gothic rock band [1], formed in Northampton, England in 1978. The group consisted of Peter Murphy (vocals, occasional instruments), Daniel Ash (guitar), Kevin Haskins (drums) and David J (bass). Although they dropped the numerical portion within a year of formation, the band was originally named Bauhaus 1919, in reference to the first operating year of the art school Bauhaus. Generally considered the first gothic rock group, Bauhaus were known for their gloomy sound and dark image. Musically however, the band was also quite diverse. Throughout their career, they incorporated a variety of genres, ranging from reggae to art rock.[2]
Bauhaus broke up in 1983. Peter Murphy began a solo career while Ash and Haskins continued as Tones on Tail and, later, reunited with David J to form Love and Rockets. Both enjoyed greater commercial success in the United States than Bauhaus had, but disappeared from the charts in their homeland. Bauhaus eventually reunited for a 1998 tour and again from 2005–2008.

motor

in memory of lemmy, today’s DJ is the 1983 release by motorhead, “another perfect day”. this is my favorite motorhead record and the title track is my all time favorite motorhead song which you can listen to below. this was the 6th release by motorhead and it apparently was their least favorite, no accounting for taste i guess 😉 the cover art is amazing, it was done by Joe Petagno who also did work for led zeppelin and pink floyd. the artwork however was the bands favorite cover art, at least they liked something about the record….i’m sorry, another perfect day is an amazing piece of work, songs like ‘dancing on your grave’, ‘marching off to war’ and ‘back to the funny farm’ plus a dynamic cover art makes this release top notch.….rommel approves of it as well.

PAILHEAD

ok, second day of the DJ blog…today is “pailhead” on wax tracks records out of chicago. Pailhead was a side project of the industrial metal band Ministry that featured Dischord Records founder and former Minor Threat and Fugazi frontman Ian MacKaye on vocals. The band’s sound was a dark combination of menacing industrial beats and hardcore punk, predating what Ministry would later do with Jello Biafra in another side project Lard. – got that straight off of wikipedia, couldn’t have said it better myself…anyway, pailhead is great stuff.
