Bauhaus, Crackle: The Best of Bauhaus (1998)
I quite like Bauhaus – but I couldn’t tell you I’m a diehard fan. I interviewed Daniel Ash once and that was cool, he was nice and interesting. I can’t link to it because it was when I was writing for another newspaper under a fake name (the things we – have to – do). And I liked the 2008 “comeback” album, Go Away White. I’ve owned most of the albums including other compilations but always on CD. This double-LP is my first and only Bauhaus on vinyl and seems a good thing to have. I liked it. Possibly won’t play it all the way through all that often but had to have it. Bought it and then the next day it was announced that Peter Murphy will play solo shows here doing all Bauhaus material. Well, that was good timing, this’ll be handy prep-work then.
