Bauhaus are a four-piece post-punk rock band from Northampton, England. The band emerged from the post-punk alternative music scene of the early 80s and became highly influential with their string of innovative albums.
'The Bela Session' captures the first session Bauhaus recorded together, just six weeks after forming a band, on January 26th, 1979. This is the first release of that complete recording session featuring all five tracks, three of which are previously unreleased.
The release includes 'Bela Lugosi's Dead', considered the original gothic rock record and a cornerstone of the genre.
'Bite My Hip', also included in this promo, was previously unreleased and later reworked as 'Lagartija Nick' in 1983.
