Bauhaus "Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape" LP (Black Friday 2018)
Originally released in 1982, this is a live album, compiled from shows across the UK from 1981–82. Press the Eject... 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…” 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 center of “goth” mythology.
This Record Store Day Black Friday release is pressed on white vinyl.
