Bauhaus (band)

Bauhaus was a British rock band popular in the 80s. Although there were bands before them that pre-figured the style, Bauhaus is generally agreed to have been the first goth group. Bauhaus combined a number of influences (punk music, glam rock, even dub) to create a gloomy, but also very passionate sound which appealed to many of the youth left looking for something new in the wake of punk's collapse. Their sound proved very influential, inspiring or bringing attention to a whole wave of post punk groups delving in the intense, gloomy style that would eventually come to be known as goth rock. Bauhaus remains one of the most popular groups of its era and genre.

The line-up:

Discography: After Bauhaus broke up, all members of the band did various solo work. Peter Murphy has many solo albums available, such as Deep and Love Hysteria. Daniel Ash has also put out solo albums and released music under the name Tones on Tail. David J. is currently working on his visual arts. Kevin Haskins has been making electronic music for video games, and also has been producing musical artists such as Gary Numan.

In 1985, David, Daniel and Kevin formed Love and Rockets, who achieved a US hit in 1989 with "So Alive".

Bauhaus had their Resurrection tour in 1999. All the members are still working on music.
