1978) popular in the 1980s. The band took their name from the German
Bauhaus art movement, originally going by the name "Bauhaus 1919",

Bauhaus combined a number of influences including punk music, glam rock, even funk and dub, to create a gloomy but very passionate sound which appealed to many left looking for something new in the wake of punk's collapse.
Bauhaus debuted with the single, "Bela Lugosi's Dead", which was released in August 1979. By far their most famous work, its minimalist, free-form nature evoked a mixture of The Doors, early Pink Floyd and experimental Krautrock bands such as Can and Neu!. The band released three more singles including "Dark Entries", "Terror Couple Kill Colonel" and "Telegram Sam" before the debut of their first album, In the Flat Field, in 1980. In the Flat Field topped the indie charts and made headway onto the British pop charts, peaking at #72. Their second album, Mask, followed the next year and their third full-length album, The Sky's Gone Out, were released in 1982. Also in 1982, Bauhaus scored their biggest hit with another nod to their glam roots, a cover of David Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust", which reached #15 on the charts. The group disbanded in 1983.
In 1998, Bauhaus reunited for the "Resurrection Tour", which featured two new songs "Severance" and "The Dog's a Vapour". A live album recorded during the tour, Gotham, was released the same year. In 2005, Bauhaus played a reunion gig at the Coachella Valley Music Festival in Indio, California. Bauhaus is currently recording new music and will tour with Nine Inch Nails on the summer leg of the With Teeth tour.
