  • Tracklist
Formed in Northampton in 1978, Bauhaus are an English post-punk band who are considered by many to be pioneers of the gothic rock genre. Originally released in 1982, "Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape" is a live album, compiled from the bands shows across the UK from 1981–82.

The album 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 Lugosi's Dead” 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 centre of “Goth” mythology.

Just two albums into their career, Bauhaus' repertoire consisted of many standards and fan favourites. Released despite the punk world's disdain for live albums (because of their association with arena rock), this 11-track collection was recorded in London, Liverpool, Manchester, and Paris. The bands performances throughout "Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape” are utterly electrifying, appearing in their prime for an unforgettable and momentous recording.
