Bauhaus coloured vinyl album reissues + Bela Session 12″ EP

Late 2018 will mark the 40th anniversary of Bauhaus. To celebrate, Beggars Arkive is reissuing six records from the band’s catalogue on limited edition coloured vinyl.

Formed in 1978, The legendary and hugely influential quartet hailed from Northampton, England and is comprised of Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins. The dark, dramatic music that they made, possessed far more force, variety and playfulness than the “founding fathers of goth” tag that is always attached to them.

Bauhaus’ landmark debut album, In the Flat Field, came out towards the end of 4AD’s first eventful year. Following the plan at the time, the band then “moved upstairs” to Beggars Banquet, for whom they cut three further albums before dissolving in 1983. They charted with their cover of David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust”, they’ve been and namechecked by everyone from Nine Inch Nails, Sepultura, Janes Addiction, MGMT, Interpol, Bjork, Nirvana and more. They remain a huge cult concern, periodically reforming to wow their legions of dedicated followers.

On 26th October “In The Flat Field” (bronze) and “Mask” (yellow) are released.

Followed by “Press Eject And Give Me The Tape” (white) and “The Sky’s Gone Out” (violet)

The last of the 6 coloured vinyl reissues come out on 7th December when “Crackle” (ruby) and “Burning From The Inside” (blue) go on sale.

They are all available to pre-order now in the shop and online.

There is also a 12″ of “The Bela Session” coming out on 23rd November. This is a 5 track 12″ single which includes a 50 x 50cm poster of the cover artwork.
